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.

"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.
