Telematics Drives Down RiskCurb bad driving behaviors
Fleet safety can be dramatically improved by using telematics data to measure and improve driving behavior. Telematics refers to the systems and sensor on a vehicle. Fleet telematics merges data from vehicle systems and sensors with people to better manage fleet operations. Vehicle tracking systems port the telematics data with the GPS tracking data which becomes available to fleet managers online.
Accelerometer measures force in various directions but generally up & down, forward & backward and left & right. The accelerometer on the GO System samples and g-force 100 times a second. The data is evaluated and logged if high enough to represent unwanted driving habits or an accident. To read more about how the accident logger works, click here.
Fleet Safety is a Culture
Fleet safety starts at the top with a conscious decision and investment of time and money. One investment is in a telematics system that provides data from which safety can be measured. The GO System takes it one step further and provides the driver feedback. This feedback coaches the driver on unwanted behavior such as harsh breaking through a buzzer in the GPS device. Ongoing infractions indicate a driver who may be unwilling to change habits and represents a risk to company assets and legal liability.
