MAGTEC Delivers Innovative Vehicle Control Systems Thanks to Geofencing with Google Maps

MAGTEC specializes in developing and manufacturing commercial vehicle control systems specifically designed for the light duty, transit, trucking and heavy equipment industries. The company’s preventive-based technology addresses challenges associated with security, driver management, safety, asset protection and prevention of cargo theft. 

SafeSpeed, MAGTEC’s newest product offering, was developed using Google Maps and the Roads API. It's the only solution on the market that does more than report speed; it also allows customers to remotely control speed, fleet wide. Google’s data visualization tools allowed MAGTEC’s developers to create geo fences and geo zones and zoom in two levels deeper than had been possible with Bing. Tracking location with geofencing is at the heart of SafeSpeed.
