Telematics? You may heard a lot about this buzzwords, but what is telematics? How it relates to our life?
Fleetmatics Development Limited defines Telematics as integrates telecommunications and informatics world. It’s the technology of sending, receiving and storing information relating to remote objects-like vehicles-via telecommunication devices. Under this definition, its similarity reminds us of GPS(Global Positioning System) technology. With the requirements of remote monitoring of vehicles, the universal understanding of telematcis has gradually equal to GPS vehicle tracking.
What information can Fleet Telematics brings? Here are some of the most common types of data tracked by fleets.
Driving Patterns-These can be tracked to ensure that each driver is driving to optimum standards and fuel efficiency. It will also expose dangerous or careless drivers.
Traffic And Congestion-By becoming aware of traffic delays and congestion, fleet controllers can give updates on delays to customers and maintain deadlines.
Geofencing-This can make sure that fleet drivers keep to selected areas and routes which are chosen for their efficiency. If a driver veers off from the route, the fleet controller will be alerted and can contact the driver.
CO2 Emissions-These can be monitored to ensure they comply with governmental standards.
Servicing and Maintenance-You can plan your servicing and general upkeep of fleet vehicles by having specific data as to their exact mileage and usage.
Telematics Mapping-this allows you to replay a drivers movements and driving as if you were the driver, noting speed, braking and idling habits.
