CALTEX HAS re­launched its Telem­at­ics So­lu­tion which it says is the first in the Aus­tralian mar­ket to pro­vide fleet own­ers and man­agers with real-time en­gine di­ag­nos­tic alerts, driver me­chan­i­cal be­hav­iours, and a pre­dic­tive fail­ure and main­te­nance ca­pa­bil­ity. It is also claimed to of­fer stan­dard lo­ca­tion-based fea­tures avail­able in tra­di­tional GPS/Telem­at­ics sys­tems.

Caltex says the Telem­at­ics tech­nol­ogy, which is pow­ered by Traf­filog Fleet Man­age­ment So­lu­tions, is fully in­te­grated into a ve­hi­cle’s en­gine man­age­ment and di­ag­nos­tic sys­tem, al­low­ing it to pro­vide un­prece­dented in­sights into the per­for­mance of both ve­hi­cles and driv­ers with sim­ple and easy-to-un­der­stand dash­boards and re­ports.

Ac­cord­ing to Caltex, the con­fig­urable tech­nol­ogy iden­ti­fies po­ten­tial prob­lems early, which means low­er­ing main­te­nance costs and down­time, keep­ing fleets safe, run­ning ef­fi­ciently and on the road longer.

Be­cause of the con­nec­tion to the ve­hi­cle CANbus, Caltex ex­plains that the en­gine data is col­lected, in­ter­preted and cor­re­lated by com­plex al­go­rithms, al­low­ing it to de­tect po­ten­tial me­chan­i­cal fail­ures.

It is said to ul­ti­mately sim­plify the com­plex task of fleet man­age­ment in a cost-ef­fec­tive, safe and ef­fi­cient man­ner, and re­duces the e chances of un­fore­seen break­downs.

Caltex says the so­lu­tion in­cludes an In­tel­li­gent el­li­gent Telem­at­ics Unit (ITU), driver feed­back unit, driver ID recog­ni­tion, ni­tion, and a Cloud-based Fleet Man­age­ment so­lu­tion.

The Cloud-based soft­ware is re­ported to help man­age and op­ti­mise fleet ef­fi­ciency by of­fer­ing ac­cess to a range of tra­di­tional and in­no­va­tive fea­tures in real time. It is dash­board driven, which Caltex says gives ac­cess to in­ter­preted data, hence only need­ing to fo­cus on ar­eas that re­quire fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion across key fields.

Th­ese in­clude live as­set track­ing/lo­ca­tion, on, driver pro­file, fleet pro­file, and an over­all ef­fi­ciency cen­tre cov­er­ing fuel ef­fi­ciency, me­chan­i­call skills, safety events and me­chan­i­cal events.
