In-Vehicle Computer Mounts Keep Drivers Safe

Posted on June 4, 2012

WARMINSTER, Pa. — Research by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration cites that commercial drivers reaching for an object triple their risk of an accident or other safety-critical event. In response, Havis Inc. designed in-vehicle consoles that secure radios, emergency lighting controls and communications equipment within comfortable reach. This keeps chauffeurs safe and productive.

Havis also offers docking stations and vehicle mounts to securely lock driver laptops in place and prevent unwanted swinging through quick maneuvers and crash situations. The locking mechanism on Havis docking stations actually strengthens as force is applied in a crash.

These docking stations also comply with and exceed safety standards for rugged mobile computing, withstanding shock and vibration testing, a 30 mph crash test, cycle testing, and electromagnetic interference testing.  Additionally, Havis mounting solutions are tested as an entire system to improve safety during impact events and rollovers.
