WOODRIDGE, IL - Continuing to focus on the telematics products portion of its business, The Morey Corporation announced significant enhancements to its Rugged TRAX MT-13, a telematics-based fleet management product for light- to medium-duty fleet owners and operators as well as the Application Service Providers that serve the market. Product enhancements include:

  • Accelerometer - the addition of an accelerometer improves the value of the MT-13 by supplementing accessible information with more event data that can be user-programmed for different thresholds based on individual asset use applications. The accelerometer in the MT-13 is a 3-axis threshold-set trigger. The threshold is set in "Gs" or gravities. If, for example, the trigger is set for .5 Gs, then any event, either acceleration or deceleration, exceeding .5 Gs in any of the three axes will trip the accelerometer. Possible applications for this capability include crash event, rapid acceleration/deceleration detection and reporting and driver behavior.
  • Garmin Fleet Management Interface - enables fleet owner/operator or ASP to develop a complete fleet management solution in conjunction with Garmin portable navigation devices. Possible applications include dispatch system integration and two-way messaging.
  • Idle Detection - enables development of applications to report low/no speed thresholds over a configurable amount of time. Possible applications include driver behavior and fuel efficiency monitoring.
  • Backup Battery - offers backup battery power and up to 1,000 messages in event of vehicle battery outage. The MT-13 also includes battery voltage monitoring, and low battery notification.

"MOREY's MT-13 is a feature-packed, low cost solution that goes beyond simple asset track and trace to higher level monitoring functions and combines rugged dependability with flexible over-the-air programmability and configuration," said Dana Morey, Executive Vice President for MOREY.  "The Rugged TRAX MT-13 can dramatically increase fleet productivity and accountability and help fleet owners fully utilize, track, and maintain their equipment."

The enhancements to the MT-13 build on an already strong set of standard features, which include:

  • GPS-based motion detection
  • Ignition Sense
  • Quad-Band GSM Network Support
  • Virtual Odometer
  • Storage & Forward of Data When Out of Network Coverage
  • Status Monitoring & Event Management
  • Up to Six Geofences (10 point polygons)
  • Java Programming Environment
  • Message Buffering
