We are excited to announce that PreView Sentry collision avoidance data can now be accessed on the Geotab Marketplace. Both on- and off-road fleets will now benefit from the integration of PreView Sentry with Geotab’s open-platform telematics solution. The integration captures critical data related to blind zone collision avoidance and near miss information.

Collision Avoidance with the Power of Telematics

The combination of PRECO and Geotab’s telematics solution will provide data that will report collision warning alerts, including detection zones, to report incidents and near misses.

The MyGeotab platform can combine this information with other safety analytics such as speed, acceleration, braking and location to give fleet operators valuable safety analytics. Additionally, Geotab users can create real-time event alerts, as well as summary reports to gain broader insights. This advanced technology will help fleets create safer routes and driving habits, while minimizing the costs and occurrences of collisions.

“The introduction of PreView Sentry to the Geotab Marketplace helps provide our medium and heavy duty industry customers with an integrated solution that can provide immediate value,” said Scott Sutarik, Associate Vice President, Commercial Vehicle Solutions at Geotab. “Customers’ ability to capture data will have a dramatic impact on how they evaluate drivers and expectations.  Geotab is focused on providing customers with a complete picture of the vehicle operation and PRECO’s collision avoidance data is a critical element to this goal.”

Flexible Technology

PRECO’s suite of radar-based collision avoidance systems is built to work independently or in conjunction with other safety solutions.   PRECO’s flexible radar systems monitor blind spots on the sides and rear of a vehicle, and actively warn operators with audible and visual alerts to help avoid potential collisions – improving operational safety and efficiency.
