    UPS testing new Motorola in-vehicle mobile computer - Computerworld

    A new rugged mobile computer from Motorola Inc. for use inside vehicles is undergoing testing for deployment in 2010 by delivery giant United Parcel Service of America Inc.

    Tom McNeela, senior product manager at Motorola, said the telemetrics supported by the device will give drivers and dispatchers access to information on the next route they need to find, as well as automatic information on factors such as excessive vehicle idling or excessive speed. Barrett said the applications tested successfully so far included truck speed, RPM, braking data and idle time, although more functions will be tested later.
