Stocks in this article: XPLR

Xplore Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ: XPLR), manufacturer of the world’s most powerful, longest-lasting and ultra-rugged tablets on the market, and blank-it, a leader in motion-safety technologies, have partnered to deliver an integrated solution to improve safety by eliminating distractions while operating heavy machinery in warehousing and distribution operations.

“Distractions from mobile devices while driving is not limited to automobiles,” said Mark Holleran, President and Chief Operating Officer for Xplore Technologies. “Fork lifts, cranes, garbage trucks, even bulldozers are using cab-mounted tablets as productivity tools, making motion-safety technology a critical component of an accident-free workplace.”

By integrating blank-it’s distracted driving solution with Xplore’s ultra-rugged tablets, drivers are limited to the use of pre-selected programs while in motion, such as navigation aids, reversing camera displays or dispatch systems. And while other safety-motion technologies offer solutions that use GPS technology for motion detection outdoors, the Xplore Technologies and blank-it solution relies on a patented motion sensing technology that eliminates the dependency on GPS navigation, making it ideal for indoor use such as in warehouses or factories.

“Xplore’s rugged tablets are ideal devices for the warehousing and logistical environments where our customers operate,” said Philip Little, President at blank-it. “Because of the tablets’ ability to operate and withstand all-terrain environments, forklift operators are able to operate more safely, no matter where they are.”

blank-it’s motion detecting software automatically activates when an operator puts a vehicle in motion by utilizing a proprietary USB mounted accelerometer. To prevent tampering, Xplore developed a secure cover to lock the accelerometer to the vehicle mounted tablet. The integrated solution is available with Xplore’s ultra-rugged iX104C5 product series.

Xplore’s ultra-rugged tablets are employed by the world’s largest fleets indoors and out. blank-it’s technology provides an easy and safe option to manage vehicle displays and address driver distraction with its screen blanking software. The Xplore and blank-it solution can be used in various environments that benefit from rugged technology, including warehousing and distribution.
