A wireless security and anti-hijacking system for
vehicles hauling flammable fuels or hazardous materials has been announced
by SCI International of Clearwater, Florida (www.sciww.com
). The company,
who manufactures and markets the SmartFuel and Smart-Co-Pilot telemetric
systems for fleet managers, says its new wireless Smart & Secure Fleet
Security System can automatically stop the flow of fuel to the engine
of any vehicle deviating from its predetermined route or driving at an
unsafe speed. The system can also automatically transmit real-time video
and audio signals from the cab to the fleet manager whenever high-priority
situations arise, according to the company.
"Recent events have created concerns that vehicles carrying highly explosive
fuels 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 activity
or stop a vehicle based on a wide range of predetermined parameters.
"If a vehicle deviates from course or even comes too close to a government
building 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 features
radio-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 transportation
vehicles and school busses.
The Smart & Secure system is compatible with SCI's SmartFuel Fleet Fuel
Management System and Smart-Co-Pilot Fleet Management System.
