Revolutionizing the industry

Rover Technologies’ product solution comes at a critical time for this industry and the emergence of never before available technology which is pushing industry policy and will greatly influence the need for capacity and processing power of next generation solutions.  Sensor technology advancements, innovations in connectivity, application solutions and the resulting exponential flow of data needing to be processed efficiently and intelligently make the Rover’s platform a “real” immediate requirement to all operators as they address expansion of technology for their operations. 
Rover expects the following factors are forcing the public service industry to address their technology policies and ultimately will lead them to the Rover platform; the only solution which can allow flexibility in implementation and more importantly, provide the required intelligence of the information gathered and perform the necessary actions desired.


Rover Technologies has identified a significant void in the public transportation sector as it relates to the ability to accommodate existing and necessary future solutions.  All of this information needs to be intelligently collected and processed.  A design which addresses this today is much more efficient than any solution which will be forced to address the problem in the future.  Rover’s many years of involvement in the transportation industry further confirms this opportunity.

|Intelligent solutions are the only viable route.

"In today's environment, with the advancements in technology, Enterprises can no longer ignore their ability to access information, which, if processed intelligently, could assist in identifying and preventing undesirable behavior. Furthermore, the inability of their employees to effectively interpret and deliver this intelligence is now a liability to the Enterprise"

The public service industry operates under a no tolerance level with respect to security of its passengers and to the public which fall under its area of influence.  It is one of the largest industries in terms of dependency and dollars spent.  Buses run up to hundreds of thousands of dollars per unit and liability for injuries cost the agencies billions of dollars.  This trend is expected to increase particularly in light of continuing and more sophisticated security threats, limited economic climate forcing higher customer dependence on the public sector, increasing economic stress facing passengers and operators thereby the need to reduce costs and the overall desire to provide better responsiveness to future natural disasters and security threats.
    There can be no question of the need and future dependence on a platform based solution – flexible and modular.  A platform which is scalable where hardware can be “stacked” and software can be adapted is the only viable solution.

WASHINGTON, DC -- The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration today issued a new rule that will require interstate commercial truck and bus companies with serious patterns of hours-of-service (HOS) violations to install electronic on-board recorders (EOBRs) in all their vehicles. Nearly 5,700 interstate carriers will use EOBRs after the final rule's first year of implementation.
"We are committed to cracking down on carriers and drivers who put people on our roads and highways at risk," said Secretary Ray LaHood. "This rule gives us another tool to enforce hours-of-service restrictions on drivers who attempt to get around the rules."...
