Track robust telematics
Telematics can help to increase a fleet’s productivity, reduce labour costs, minimise fuel wastage, improve customer service, develop fleet safety, get better security, reduce operating expenses to name a few.
Fleet tracking systems (FTS) make use of Global Positioning systems (GPS) satellites to determine vehicle’s location. This GPS technology is part of telematics. A complete FTS makes use of the GPS receiver to determine location of vehicle and then uses GSM based device to send that information to the control centre. To understand FTS, there is a need to understand the technology and hardware running this system. Two most common interface is where a user can find all the reports that have been set up for their fleet tracking and fleet management efforts. It can also allow a user to dispatch and change routes, using the user interface. There are basically three kinds of GPS tracking devices that are available and each one works differently when compared with the others.
There are basically three kinds of GPS tracking devices that are available and each one works differently when compared with the others. Data logger/ recorder is a GPS tracking device that simply records its position at regular intervals. It gathers the data in its storage on either internal flash memory or on a memory card. Data loggers make sense for businesses that do not require having real-time location information about their vehicles.
Telematics not only captures and transmits location data but also log other forms of data. This is just the beginning of how fleet telematics can be exploited
