Kinesis is taking advantage of the latest advances in artificial intelligence with the integration of its vehicle tracking technology with Alexa, the Amazon Virtual Assistant. The development allows managers to locate their mobile workers by simply asking Alexa where a person is by name - or a vehicle by its ID number. Alexa immediately responds giving the current vehicle location and if on the move, where it is heading. The voice app works for any vehicle fitted with Kinesis trackers and is accessed using the Amazon smart speakers such as the Echo and Dot, as well as the Alexa smartphone app. Users can also ask Alexa for driver related information such as who are the best and worst drivers.
