Delphi to produce transceiver for VeriWise

Delphi Corp will begin production soon on a new satellite transceiver unit that GE will use with its VeriWise asset intelligence system. VeriWise allows fleet owners to track and monitor mobile assets such as over-the-road trailers.

Delphi's satellite transceiver unit, known as the DS300, enables GE to offer its customers two-way data sharing using the ORBCOMM low-earth orbit satellite network. It is one of two such transceivers that Delphi agreed in 2004 to co-develop and manufacture for Stellar Satellite Communications, a global supplier of data communications products for two-way messaging, tracking and monitoring applications.

VeriWise is a virtual “brain,” developed initially by GE for the trailer portion of an 18-wheeler big rig. Since 2003, it has helped shippers maintain reliable delivery of consumer goods. VeriWise helps trucking companies better allocate their trailers in the face of a national driver shortage. VeriWise can support better homeland security by offering another layer of protection as trailers and containers move from ports and rail hubs to destinations across North America.
