ISAAC Instruments - What is ISAAC?

Continue reading to learn more about ISAAC and its potential uses for your company.


In a quest to improve his own performance, racer and race engineer Jacques DeLarochelliere developed a technological tool to collect and process vehicle and driver behavior data.

Named after renown scientist Sir Isaac Newton, ISAAC had its first success in 1999, when it was invited to meet with the world’s largest car manufacturers, including Ford, GM, Chrysler, Honda, and Toyota. ISAAC thus gained unique knowledge, valuable telemetry experience, and built a solid technological base.

The economic crisis of 2008 forced the automotive and transportation industries to streamline their activities. That is when ISAAC decided to lend its expertise to the road transport market. The company focused all its energy on providing carriers with valuable information to maximize their productivity and make smart business decisions.

Today, ISAAC Instruments is at the heart of operations for a large number of carriers of all sizes, including some of the largest carriers in the Canadian Top 100.

More information is available on ISAAC's website.

Rose Rocket and ISAAC

Rose Rocket currently works specifically with their Equipment Monitoring service.

This can be used for a variety of tasks, such as the following, also from their website:

Complying with ELD regulations has never been easier

Drivers’ electronic logbooks update automatically as they drive and perform activities, such as vehicle inspections or refueling. With this instantaneous synchronization between their logbook and trip sheet, drivers can easily comply with hours-of-service regulations and prevent violations. In both Canada and the U.S., you can count on a reliably compliant solution that is systematically updated as rules evolve.

Enjoy peace of mind

Ensure fleet compliance, no matter where or when. With ISAAC, driver logbooks are always on track since they work independently of cellular networks. We know how critical your assets are to your operations, which is why we provide a solution you can count on.

Optimize hours of service

Plan trips efficiently based on the availability of your drivers with a real-time view of service hours. Meanwhile, your drivers can better organize their schedules with summaries of their remaining hours for the day, the next day, and the day after that.

Reduce violations with real-time notifications

Comply with Canadian and American hours-of-service (HOS) regulations thanks to real-time driver alerts. Drivers can better plan their days and hours of service using reminders on the ISAAC tablet. Automated alerts are sent to compliance managers whenever a driver is in violation.

Manage daily inspections efficiently

Keep your assets on the road. Speed up repairs by instantly informing your maintenance department of any defects identified during vehicle inspection. Information, including time, location, and photos, is sent automatically to help reduce downtime.

Take the stress out of roadside inspections

During roadside inspections, drivers can immediately display information from the last 8/14 days on the tablet. And because it is wireless, the tablet can be used outside the truck to show authorities reports, which keeps roadside inspections simple and hassle-free.

Reduce downtime

The best way to make proactive maintenance decisions is to be aware of diagnostic codes as soon as they occur. With real-time alerts, your team can assess the severity of situations and respond quickly. You can also use our automated reports to pinpoint your lowest performing trucks and make adjustments.

Automate IFTA, IRP and ThruWay reporting

Receive accurate odometer mileage by province and state, to save time and help reduce fuel tax reporting paperwork.

Get rid of procedure binders in trucks

Quickly share procedures with your drivers. Provide them with training material and procedures in digital format on their ISAAC tablet. Ensure your drivers always have access to the latest documentation, even on the road.
