Qualcomm's New "Analytics Management Service" for Trucking Industry


Qualcomm (a research and development company, the name is a scrunched-up version of the phrase “Quality Communications”) has not let news of the impending new federal regulations of truckers across the country (2010’s CSA) go past unnoticed. Instead, they’ve just announced their new Analytics Manager as a product available to the American trucking industry, taking their forte in wireless communication to give trucking companies somewhat of a big brother connection to their semis on the road.

All of the benefits of the Analytics manager sound great, right? Using wireless technology so that these trucking companies can more readily comply with the new federal regulations but what is all this about its critical event reporting?

Does this boil down to the gizmo reporting a major big rig wreck to the company for CYA purposes? Does it mean that insurance adjusters are notified even before EMS or the police? Does it even INCLUDE a function to call for medical assistance in the event of a truck crash?

What at first glance appears to be an instrument for safety, it may be an instrument to get the trucking industry defense attorneys on alert for probable litigation.
