Kinesis is taking advantage of the latest advances in artificial intelligence with the integration of its vehicle tracking technology with Alexa, the Amazon Virtual Assistant. The development allows managers to locate their mobile workers by simply asking Alexa where a person is by name - or a vehicle by its ID number. Alexa immediately responds giving the current vehicle location and if on the move, where it is heading.
The Crewe-based company believes it is the first telematics supplier to take advantage of voice assistance technology. The voice app works for any vehicle fitted with Kinesis trackers and is accessed using the Amazon smart speakers such as the Echo and Dot, as well as the Alexa smartphone app. Users can also ask Alexa for driver related information such as who are the best and worst drivers.
“Our customers typically run busy commercial enterprises and anything that makes their work easier will be welcomed” says Greville Coe, Group Managing Director - Telematics at Radius Payment Solutions, the company behind Kinesis. “Often managers and customer service staff just need to know whether a driver or engineer has arrived on site or is on route. By linking voice assistance technology to Kinesis, they get an immediate answer by simply asking Alexa.”
