LAS VEGAS and MINNEAPOLIS, April 28, 2014—PeopleNet® (www.peoplenetonline.com), a Trimble® company and leading provider of fleet mobility technology, today announced at the National Tank Truck Carriers Annual Conference & Tank Truck Equipment Show being held in Las Vegas that it is the first provider of complete fleet mobility technology to integrate with Titan Logix Corp.’s TD80TM mobile liquid-level gauging system for mobile tankers, using the company’s new Finch IITM advanced display/controller. PeopleNet Senior Vice President, Tailored Solutions Randy Boyles said, “This integration makes an expanding set of data from Titan Logix system available through PeopleNet to automate end-to-end fluid management workflow. It kicks off a slew of possibilities for carriers to improve efficiencies in their tanker fleet operation. Data also can be transmitted to back-office systems for processing and reporting through the PeopleNet Link.”
Initially, new Titan Logix data available through PeopleNet will include time that loading begins and ends, level information from single or both compartments at regular intervals that can be adjusted by the customer, alarm information from both compartments, time that the system was acknowledged or bypassed, and error events. In the future, the information collected could expand to offset calibration adjustment made by the driver, notification of fill or fall alarm level changes, notification of a connected horn that has been bypassed, log of hardware configuration setting changes, log of relay programming settings changes.
As the integration progresses, liquid-level readings from the Titan Logix in-cab display will be electronically transmitted to the PeopleNet onboard computer. The onboard computer will then transmit this data via PeopleNet’s reliable mobile communications (cellular, satellite, WiFi) to the customer’s back office system providing up to the minute tank levels to fleet dispatchers and managers as well as facilitating historical trend and utilization reporting.
“We are excited about the partnership with PeopleNet,” said Titan Logix Corp.’s President and CEO Greg McGillis. “Being able to provide this tie-in to PeopleNet’s fleet mobility technology is a great example of Titan’s objective to make ‘In the Office’ fluid management solutions available to our customers. We look forward to the benefits they will experience from remote tracking of their mobile inventory.”
