DriverTech Launches Its Latest DT4000 Mobile Fleet Management Device with Video Capture

All-new single-solution combines ELD, Mobile Comm, and Video for the price of an iPhone

SALT LAKE CITY – January 20, 2017 – DriverTech today announced the launch of an all-new mobile communications device, including Electronic Logging Device (ELD) capabilities, and a front-facing dash camera at an incredible price. Enabled by the industry’s most powerful computing platform, the latest DT4000 Rev 7 is the first offering in the market that combines mobile communications, compliant ELD capabilities, and a forward-facing dashcam in a single system priced under $800.00.

“Our brand new 7th generation DT4000 is a truly revolutionary device and a remarkable value for fleets,” said Mark Haslam, CEO of DriverTech. “We’ve created our most powerful system ever – it’s packed with new capabilities such as 100% more computing capacity, installs in under twenty minutes, and includes a front-facing critical event camera.”

Unlike legacy systems, the DT4000, with a rugged camera included, is priced at only $799.

“Our system is priced lower than many popular smartphones,” said Steve Sanderson, Director of Sales for DriverTech. “We see fleets looking at a wide range of ELD and video capture technology as an additive, but not very cohesive, solution – we chose to merge these into a single platform at an unbelievable price.”

Over 500 fleets use DriverTech’s software and rely on DriverTech’s back-office Tier 1 Network Operating Center to keep their trucks and drivers in communications with fleet managers.

Beyond the new hardware, DriverTech has made multiple recent additions to its software including:

  • Video capture of critical events, such as hard braking,
  • WorkFlow integrations with leading transportation management software providers,
  • A smartphone app to link business processes to drivers outside of the cab,
  • Fleet-managed Truck Safe Navigation.

Other innovations include the ability to interface with Cummins Connected Diagnostics, and MTIS (Meritor Tire Inflation System) products.

When designing the new DT4000, stability, and safety for the driver and fleet were at the forefront of the team’s mind.

DriverTech retains its dedication to stability, robustness, and reliability born of its roots as a development partner with the US Army from1997 through 2004. In fact, DriverTech has gone eleven years without a system outage.

The design team for the DT4000 put a special emphasis on distracted driving and has carefully followed the SAE J2571 standard for ‘Mode Control’ which sets standards for Truck and Bus user interfaces and stipulates that certain functions are restricted while driving.

“Preventing the driver from using distracting elements of the smartphone is nearly impossible when you make the smartphone the primary driver interface for HOS or other applications,” said Sanderson. “Following SAE J2571 is the first and best method to limit distracting elements in trucks and buses providing a safer experience for drivers and assets alike.”

A white paper discussing driver distraction and the new NHTSA proposed guidelines for portable devices is available here.
