A Government Fleet story featuring RUBICONSmartCity was name one of the magazine’s most popular feature stories of 2019.
The story, titled “In These Cities, Fleet Vehicles Are Roaming Data Centers,” highlighted Rubicon’s partnerships with the City of Montgomery, AL and West Memphis, AR. To quote the original article:
Last fall, Montgomery, Ala., Director of Public Works Chris Conway and Director of Fleet Management Walt Lilley connected with Rubicon and its SmartCity waste and recycling solutions platform. They outfitted 80 sanitation department vehicles with a smartphone loaded with Rubicon’s hauler-specific app and a telematics “pod” capable of communicating with headquarters and each other.
Lilley said he was hopeful adding telematics would improve driver safety and vehicle health, opting for catastrophic-level vehicle health alerts. “I can’t even count the number of saves. I really don’t know. But our lot is a lot fuller every morning, because when we get notifications and contact sanitation leadership, they tell the drivers to bring them in,” he said.
