ClearSky™ telematics by McNeilus to include digital alerting powered by Safety Cloud®

CHICAGO (June 30, 2021) – McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company and industry leading refuse vehicle manufacturer, announced HAAS Alert as its first strategic partner for its Micro Services Platform to provide active safety capabilities to McNeilus Telematics equipped vehicles. Motorists equipped with HAAS Alert’s Safety Cloud, will receive real-time digital alerts when approaching an equipped McNeilus waste or refuse vehicle performing a collection. McNeilus is the second Oshkosh Corporation company to incorporate HAAS Alert safety technology, following Pierce Manufacturing’s custom fire apparatus.

Safety Cloud alerts are delivered to motorists through in-vehicle systems and navigation applications, giving drivers clear advance warning and providing to safely slow down and move over, to date, Safety Cloud has delivered 1 billion digital alerts. The company’s alerts have so far been led through its integration with Waze, the popular navigation app, with more integrations on the way. Safety Cloud alerts about nearby roadway hazards reduce the risk of crashes by up to 90% by providing critical advance warning to drivers though the connected vehicle communication Safety Cloud platform.

Jeff Koga, Vice President and General Manager at McNeilus, said that HAAS Alert was the ideal flagship Micro Services Platform partner for its connected vehicles. “Safety is a critical concern for our customers. They are always looking for ways to keep their employees safe while in the field and vehicles in service longer. As we launch ClearSky™ telematics by McNeilus and our service platform, integrating HAAS Alert’s Safety Cloud as an active safety solution was a perfect fit.”

Cory Hohs, HAAS Alert’s CEO, said “Our partnership with McNeilus demonstrates the need for connected safety solutions across a wide range of industries and the flexibility of Safety Cloud. Collaborating with a second Oshkosh Corporation company is a testament to HAAS Alert’s ability to successfully provide industry leaders with innovative, reliable, and cost-effective safety solutions.”
