On January 17th, MiX Telematics was the proud sponsor of the ceremony at the Viajeros Awards held in Madrid. The event, otherwise known as the ‘Industrial Vehicles of the Year Awards Ceremony’, brought together over 350 influential figures from the transport and logistics and bus and coach industries. Also in attendance was Director General Joaquín del Moral Salcedo from Terrain Transport of the Spanish Ministry of Economic Development.
During participation in the Autocar Expo in Bordeaux, France, MiX Telematics and partner Sirac ran a driver competition which invited bus drivers to try out the new generation RIBAS system by MiX Telematics. A total of 20 drivers were attracted to the stand. They participated eagerly by driving a set route with the aim of showing off their skills and seeing first hand how the modified device can boost their performance.
MiX Telematics is launching a new generation of its dashboard-mounted RIBAS display at Euro Bus Expo 2012. Building on the success of the original RIBAS system, an optional element of MiX Telematics' Fleet Manager solution which provides drivers with instant driving-style feedback, the new unit's functionality has been extended to include Green/Amber/Red status lights. These lights reflect the current driving-style, telling the driver when he or she is driving correctly, when a pre-programmed operational parameter (see below) is in danger of being exceeded and when a parameter has been exceeded. In this way, the new generation RIBAS display works pro-actively to help drivers stay within their vehicle's pre-programmed safety and efficiency parameters at all times.
For the third time running, MiX Telematics participated in the renowned IAA Commercial Vehicles Trade Fair in Hanover, Germany – an event that from 20-27 September hosted 1,904 exhibitors from 46 countries. Welcoming around 260,000 visitors from diverse industries, the gathering represented an ideal opportunity for MiX Telematics to announce new products and share key proven benefits of their solutions for bus and truck operators.
