Since 2010, KMMG has provided more than 164 pre-production model Optimas and Sorentos to local schools, law enforcement and emergency agencies for educational training purposes. Of those, 97 have been used to assist in first-responder training.
These vehicles assist the groups in a variety of ways, from being used in emergency training with local fire departments to training future vehicle technicians at local technical colleges. Since the vehicles are not used on public roadways, they make excellent training tools for students and personnel, giving them the opportunity to experience the latest technology.
Another such project in the Safe Mobility area would be the installation of the WheelRight, a drive-over tire pressure monitoring system that is designed to solve the pervasive problem of underinflated tires, which are a safety hazard and contribute to fuel inefficiency.
