IoT specialist ORBCOMM is to provide its vehicle customers with TripVision real time remote diagnostic software from IoT connected vehicle specialist Noregon. TripVision will enhance ORBCOMM’s fleet telematics offering by adding more advanced vehicle and safety diagnostics for a real-time view of fleet fitness without the need for additional hardware.

With TripVision, ORBCOMM’s customers can monitor all makes and all models of heavy-duty vehicles and view calculated health and safety scores based on the faults on all components to optimise fleet performance and uptime. The solution can detect errors impacting fuel consumption, emissions irregularities and many other issues that will lower long-term operating costs. Users receive detailed instructions to relay to drivers in real time on how to best proceed, including limiting damages and getting the truck to the appropriate technicians. The software’s real-time truck monitoring also identifies problems that are harmful to productivity and safety to avoid sidelining the vehicle. Through this new offering, ORBCOMM customers can operate their fleets more efficiently and make faster, more informed business decisions regarding the health, safety and performance of their vehicles.

“We’re pleased to partner with the vehicle data experts at Noregon to help our fleet customers improve their bottom-line through increased uptime, decreased maintenance costs and enhanced efficiency with this value-added solution,” said Gregg Plonisch, ORBCOMM’s VP of Product Management. “We’re initially rolling out TripVision for vehicle maintenance, but plan to leverage our industrial IoT expertise and add other assets to the platform, such as dry and refrigerated trailers and heavy machinery, to provide a complete picture of fleet health to our global customers.”

“We’re excited for this partnership with ORBCOMM because of what the dynamic TripVision platform, integrated with ORBCOMM’s robust vehicle data, can bring to their customers,” said Scott Bolt, Noregon’s VP of Product Management. “Our mutual goal of helping fleets maximise uptime and long-term ROI can be realised by providing tools that keep their assets running in a safer and more cost-effective manner.”
