Secured Digital Applications this week announced an integrated vehicle tracking and security application that lets fleet owners monitor vehicle use in real time.

The application uses a smart card reader that identifies the driver and—by accessing a central server via wireless technology—obtains authorization for the vehicle to operate. It then monitors the vehicle for location or accidents using global positioning satellite (GPS) technology and lets fleet owners establish geographic boundaries for vehicle operation. The device also will notify the fleet operator when a vehicle is being towed, the company said.
