Tiwi tracks travels of trucks (and teens)
Concerned parents can rest easier. So can commercial-fleet operators.
A new tracking system called Tiwi can monitor a vehicle's speed, throttle position, G-forces, fuel consumption and whether the driver is wearing a seat belt.
Tiwi, created by Inthinc Technology Solutions, of Logan, Utah, initially was designed so that freight companies could better monitor their drivers' habits on the road. But the system also will be sold to concerned parents of lead-footed teenagers.
