Utilimaster Unveiled Innovative Driver Ergonomics Technology at The 2019 Clean Show

| July 5, 2019

Utilimaster demonstrated new safety technology that enhance driver safety and ease of operation via an integrated 360-degree camera system

Spartan Motors, Inc.  which specializes in commercial, retail, and specialty service  vehicle and upfit design, manufacturing, and assembling, under its Utilimaster®  brand, showcased the latest technology and capabilities of walk-in vans for linen and laundry service providers at The Clean Show, which is biennially hosted at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

Industry-first solutions were on display and featured improved driver ergonomics and safety provisions, including an innovative curbside liftgate to make entry and egress with heavy laundry carts in tow safer and easier for drivers.  The curbside liftgate is quick and easy to operate and has the durability to handle multiple loads and deliveries. The gate folds up vertically, maximizing the vehicle’s interior storage space, and can lift more than 1,000 lbs. All liftgate controls and components are housed inside the van, keeping them out of the elements which improves longevity and minimizes maintenance requirements.

Additionally, Utilimaster demonstrated new safety technology for linen and laundry vehicles that enhance driver safety and ease of operation via an integrated 360-degree camera system, enhanced exterior and interior lighting, crash mitigation systems, and hands-free Bluetooth connectivity. The truck provides multi-view vantage points for drivers to help avoid accidents and prevent damage. Utilimaster’s 360-degree camera system features Mobileye technology which provides collision mitigation and lane departure warnings while the interior and exterior LED lighting package makes the vehicle easier to see for other drivers and brightens the cargo area.

“Our Work-Driven Design™ approach dictates that we see our solutions through the lens of our customers’ unique needs,” said Chad Heminover, President, Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services. “We were proud to showcase our innovative technologies at The Clean Show that have made Utilimaster the go-to provider for vocational fleet solutions in North America.”
