Pioneer in Internet of Things and connected vehicles latest member to contribute expertise to Together for Safer Roads.
Together for Safer Roads (TSR), a coalition of global private sector companies working together to improve road safety, welcomes CalAmp as the newest member of the coalition.
CalAmp, a pure-play pioneer of Internet of Things (IoT) enablement solutions offering a range of road safety services, including LoJack, CrashBoxx, FleetOutlook, and SureDrive, will contribute its innovative technology to advance TSR’s mission of bending the curve on road traffic collisions.
Founded in 1981 and headquartered in Irvine, Calif., CalAmp’s road safety solutions have become services that businesses around the world rely on. These services, including stolen vehicle recovery, maintenance support, crash detection and instant notification, guardian services, and mobile applications, focus on a variety of challenges in road safety that provide positive results for companies and their fleets.
“Vehicles are a top safety vulnerability and reducing risks can be as easy as providing insights into driver behavior and instant crash alerts,” said Michael Burdiek, president and chief executive officer of CalAmp. “CalAmp is committed to developing strategic partnerships with forward-thinking companies, and we look forward to working alongside other TSR members to bring machines, devices, and people together to communicate seamlessly in an effort to improve road safety, ultimately saving lives.”
TSR creates a sustainable impact by:
- Advancing safer companies and fleets by educating drivers and regulators on best practice road safety interventions;
- Accelerating safer cities through emerging technologies and data-based decision making in localities’ road safety management; and
- Expanding the private sector’s engagement in the global road safety community through innovative public-private partnerships.
“Having accurate, timely insight to commercial- and citizen-related road usage helps companies, cities, and other transportation stakeholders understand and improve their safety outcomes,” said David Braunstein, president of TSR.
“With decades of experience in emerging technologies and machine to machine communications, CalAmp will be a valuable contributor to the coalition’s efforts in supporting safer companies and safer cities to invest in evidence-based solutions.”
