Strong Demand in 2016 for FleetMind/Street Smart Vision™ by McNeilus Fleet Management Solution
Street Smart Vision 10 (SSV10) Enables Smarter, Safer, Cleaner and More Productive Refuse Collection Fleets
MONTREAL, CANADA and DODGE CENTER, MN -- FleetMind Solutions and McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, reported today significant market traction in 2016 for their Street Smart Vision system, the SSV10 “smart” truck solution that combines McNeilus refuse collection vehicles with FleetMind’s mobile onboard computer and DVR platform.
“In 2016 we added 15 new waste and recycling management customers for our SSV10 solution,” said Bryan Dodds, Director of Aftermarket Product Development at McNeilus. “From customers, as far away as New Zealand, there is clearly a strong demand in the waste industry for trucks that are smarter, safer, cleaner and more productive. We are grateful to the industry for an outstanding year and are looking forward to what we will accomplish together in the new year.”
SSV10 provides a single hardware platform that enables multiple software options. It also offers interfaces to third party dispatch, billing, maintenance and other applications. SSV10 basic packages includes GPS tracking, live streaming video, DVR (recording and playback), telemetry data and alarm capabilities. For 2017, McNeilus and FleetMind will focus on new and enhanced safety initiatives that include features such as 360-degree camera views, pedestrian detection, collision avoidance and more. Customers can now order the system installed, programmed and route-ready on all aftermarket and new McNeilus trucks – all supported through its expanding network of service centers across North America.
“The waste collection fleets of the future need to be completely connected in real-time, all the time. They also need to be safe for drivers and everyone in the truck’s immediate vicinity,” said Martin Demers, Business Unit Vice-President of FleetMind Solutions. “Our mission with McNeilus is to ensure a smarter and more fully connected waste collection environment. Everyone in the back-office should have access to real-time information and complete visibility into and around the vehicle, and everyone in and around the vehicle should feel safe. 2016 marked the significant first steps of our collaboration with McNeilus toward vastly smarter waste collection fleets that will benefit everyone.”
