Provides speed management and impact sensing to help prevent accidents

By CBR Staff Writer

ID Systems, a US-based provider of wireless solutions for managing and securing enterprise assets, has said that American Eagle Airlines has selected ID Systems’s AvRamp wireless vehicle management system to manage a fleet of aircraft ground support equipment at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

According to ID Systems, the AvRamp system provides a safety, security and operational management functions for airport vehicles, including an automatic on-vehicle driver authentication system to reinforce safety training requirements and secure equipment that has direct access to passenger aircraft, electronic vehicle safety inspection checklists to help expedite repairs and prevent unsafe vehicle operation, and an array of wireless communication and data reporting tools designed to optimize fleet utilization.

The AvRamp system also provides vehicle speed management and impact sensing to help prevent vehicle accidents and provide analysis if accidents do occur, and automatic fuel conservation functions to reduce energy costs and the airline’s carbon footprint.

Jonathan Snook, senior vice president of customer services at American Eagle, said: We are implementing the AvRamp system because we believe it will improve the safety of the ramp area, where ground support equipment and aircraft operate closely together, and make the airport a safer place to work for our employees.
