Rac to equip breakdown fleet with mobile computers

(PresseBox) ( Hannover, )
The RAC is set to revolutionise the way it tackles roadside breakdowns. Its new fleet of Ford Transit patrol vehicles are to be fitted with a mobile computer that will help breakdown crews deal with more complex and demanding roadside repairs. The Skeye mobile computer will enable patrol drivers to see precisely the nature of a breakdown before they get to it. RAC drivers can download service and technical information relating to any make and model of car or motorcycle and even access online training videos to help them deal with technically demanding repairs.

The system is designed to reflect the technical complexity of modern engines in cars and motor bikes and provide the RAC driver with the vital information even before he arrives at the scene of the breakdown. Skeye has been developed in Germany by technical solutions specialist, Höft & Wessel and the system will be serviced and maintained at the Swindon headquarters of the Metric Group, a wholly owned subsidiary. The first units will be fitted in September and the entire fleet of new Transits will be fitted with the computer units by the end of the year. The order is worth in excess of £1.4 million.
