Tracking MapsMap Options for Small to Enterprise Class Fleets
Importance of Tracking
Tracking maps are the primary way in which users will initially interact with the GPS system. Great mapping enables users to quickly review and evaluate the performance of an individual driver or a fleet of vehicles. Maps must be robust, yet easy enough, for an average user to quickly review the data. Once a system is deployed glancing at the map takes just a few minutes to spot opportunities for improvement.
Tracking Map Data
The GO tracking map is unique in several ways. The quickest way to achieve an ROI is to display several routes on the map at one time. The routes that intersect or service customers near one another are likely inefficient. Simply moving a few stops around can literally save a $50-$100 a month because of travel time, fuel and another customer not being serviced due to a lack of time.
The GO device provides second-by-second resolution of the route traveled. Fleetistics calls this unique capability ExactTRAX. HD tracking does not mean a bill 60x that of competitors offering 60 second resolution or worse. The device is moving data based on a vehicles change in speed and direction and transmitting the data when you need it, not when driving down the highway going the same speed and direction. The data updates from every 5 seconds to several minutes depending on the need to deliver the right data, at the right time. In ProPlus mode, the data is update much more frequently and is consistently every 20-30 seconds while maintaining the 1 second resolution.
The smart map displays exceptions based on the area being viewed. On hover over of the mouse pointer the second-by-second detail can be seen as the seconds scroll by. Because of this high resolution, the accident reconstruction feature provides an added layer of protection in the event of a vehicle accident. Exceptions can be created from routine data or custom written.
Example: Exit zone by vehicle group A, for more than 65 seconds and a speed greater than 30 mph.
Multiple Map Options
There are multiple mapping options which play an important role in the diverse applications of GO customers. Google maps are the standard and primary mapping application. Customers can use their ESRI maps with a web map server or utilize OpenStreetMaps.org. Map views can be saved and set to default by user to reduce the time spent zooming to a territory or area.
Zones or Geofences
The zone displayed shows the power to create very large and complicated zones or geofences. The example has literally over 100 points in the polygon. In this examples emergency service vehicles dispatched outside the City of Seminole were able to be billed to neighboring areas for fire and medical services. Zones can also be quickly added and imported with one customer having over 150,000 zones.
