Intelligent Transportation Systems are the vehicle safety wave of right now.

Through the use of V2V, V2X, V2I, and ADAS technology, vehicles communicate with the infrastructure and each other to provide information relative to maintaining safe driving conditions. Telematic Updates states that, “ITS is said to be a $48 billion industry said to outpace all other industries by 2015.”

The V2X for Auto Safety and Mobility USA 2012 will serve as an initial opportunity for companies to network and learn exactly how V2V, V2X, V2I, and ADAS advances in technology may affect them due to government changes being implemented in 2013.

Add to that the increased benefits and opportunities fleet managers will gain in vehicle safety and operations when adding a GPS solution to existing fleet management systems and the synergy between the technologies becomes clear.

Implementing a GPS tracking solution with an existing fleet telematics system helps to further increase vehicle and public safety, improves driver accountability, and improves the company bottom-line for fleet based businesses.
