Dorigo Systems and Streamline Transportation Technologies Design and Manufacture the Revolutionary Navilink Vehicle Controller
Burnaby, BC, Canada – July 11, 2017 – Knowing where fleet vehicles and drivers are at all times identifies potential problems sooner and mitigates risks before they become larger issues that can impact driver safety or increase operating costs. This vision is what has propelled the design of NaviLink, an IoT transportation controller which is disrupting today’s fleet management. Manufactured by Dorigo Systems, this controller is a critical component of the Navistream onboard intelligence solution offered by Streamline Transportation Technologies Inc (STTI).
Burnaby-based Dorigo Systems was chosen as the Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) provider to create the first Navilink prototype. “Dorigo was willing to invest time and manufacturing support to bring NaviLink to market at the idea stage,” says Ron Iacobelli, P.Eng and COO at STTI. “Together, we designed and manufactured a controller that is used in our vehicle control system.”
“We were able to provide Design for Manufacturability suggestions after the prototypes so the NaviLink controller could be seamlessly launched into production,” states Paul Vasvary, Business Development Manager, Dorigo Systems. “Our mission is to manufacture the highest quality electronics using our fast turnaround and dedicated service capabilities to cost-effectively take our customer’s product from prototype to full production.”
The NaviLink design team wanted to deliver a Canadian product sourced through local manufacturing channels. In their opinion, the ability to oversee production locally, and to evolve prototype builds quickly, was critical to successfully bringing NaviLink to market.
“The nature of our product is to be safety critical,” says Iacobelli, “so we needed to work with a local EMS supplier where we could oversee product builds and ensure our controller was designed the way it was specified.” STTI works with Dorigo Systems, one of the Pacific Northwest’s leading EMS providers, due to the company’s high quality standards, its solid reputation and for being well connected with components suppliers.
“We don’t just assemble circuit boards – we become partners in the production process,” says Ken Pauls, Business Operations Manager, Dorigo Systems, “Our team handles everything from procuring components, handling metalwork and final assembly to testing, labeling and shipping of the end product to customers. In STTI’s case, they have benefitted from our highly leveraged purchasing power to reduce component costs.”
STTI provides complete connectivity for Fleet Management by providing the data and visibility to manage not only performance, location, compliance and fuel economy but also insight into the safety and reliability of fleet drivers with Navistream. Their comprehensive transportation logistics solution is securely delivered by the Canadian designed and manufactured NaviLink controller.
“It’s not often that you can find a manufacturing partner that delivers both a high level of control and quality in their services,” says Iacobelli, “We always trust Dorigo Systems to build what we’ve designed and specified. It’s an ongoing relationship that makes us agile in delivering our NaviLink controller to market quickly and effectively.”
