September 10, 2016  - By

CalAmp — a provider of wireless products, services and solutions — has launched the MDT-7P Android-based tablet designed to integrate with CalAmp’s family of aftermarket telematics devices.

It features wired, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a rugged 7-inch touchscreen display, and is suited to deliver and support applications for industries such as long-haul trucking, fleet management, asset delivery and mobile workforce management.

“The MDT-7P is designed at its core to support the development and deployment of telematics applications for the mobile workforce,” said Justin Schmid, senior vice president and general manager of the Telematics Systems business at CalAmp. “Seamlessly integrated with CalAmp’s leading telematics devices, the MDT-7P provides a powerful platform to support, monitor and maintain calamp_mdt_7papplications such as those designed to support compliance mandates for hours of service, rests, vehicle inspections and other state and federal regulations.”

The MDT-7P leverages CalAmp’s management and maintenance system, PULS (Provisioning/Programming, Update and Logistical System) for autonomous over-the-air installation of applications and firmware directly to the tablet from trusted sources such as CalAmp’s Appstore while in service.

In addition, the CalAmp Mobile Framework (CMF) software provides the interface to CalAmp’s programmable event generator (PEG). PEG enables the MDT-7P to communicate with an installed telematics device to continuously monitor the operating environment and respond instantly to pre-defined and configurable threshold conditions such as time, date, motion, location, geo-zone crossings and other parameters.

The MDT-7P offers a comprehensive and versatile set of features and capabilities including:

  • Easy-to-use Android Lollipop OS for application development
  • Support for CalAmp’s Appstore providing a secure environment to manage and distribute applications content and services
  • High quality built-in front and rear facing cameras to support streaming video applications
  • Integrated GPS receiver for high precision mapping, navigation, dispatch and routing
  • Secure 802.11 b/g/n protocols for persistent Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Dual-mode Bluetooth 4.0 including BLE support
