A wireless security and anti-hijacking system forvehicles hauling flammable fuels or hazardous materials has been announcedby SCI International of Clearwater, Florida ( The company,who manufactures and markets the SmartFuel and Smart-Co-Pilot telemetricsystems for fleet managers, says its new wireless Smart & Secure FleetSecurity System can automatically stop the flow of fuel to the engineof any vehicle deviating from its predetermined route or driving at anunsafe speed. The system can also automatically transmit real-time videoand audio signals from the cab to the fleet manager whenever high-prioritysituations arise, according to the company. "Recent events have created concerns that vehicles carrying highly explosivefuels or toxic chemicals might be used as weapons by terrorist groups. The Smart & Secure System was designed to make such scenarios impossible,"said Tal Ezra, SCI's executive vice president of marketing. Ezra said the system can be programmed to automatically monitor cab activityor stop a vehicle based on a wide range of predetermined parameters. "If a vehicle deviates from course or even comes too close to a governmentbuilding it can be programmed to automatically stop," said Ezra. The system, which integrates GPS tracking, cell phone data transmission,and a proprietary interface to the engine computer's data buss, also featuresradio-frequency driver verification making it impossible for a Smart &Secure equipped vehicle to be driven by another operator, according to SCI. Ezra said the system can also be used to secure public transportationvehicles and school busses. The Smart & Secure system is compatible with SCI's SmartFuel Fleet FuelManagement System and Smart-Co-Pilot Fleet Management System.

    I've heard SCI before but never had an interest in wireless fuel management until SecurantUSA willingly paid for my nissan terrano for the system test. I live near the SecurantUSA site and I've been actually there to personally see my self.

    Normally you get fuel once you press the nozzle but not my case...

    The wirelless signal is then sent to the station PC for approval...Fueling lasts as long as close connection between the nozzle antenna and the vehicle tag is maintained. When a person comes to the service station he can fill his vehicela as well as any other vehicle.
