Driver behaviour monitoring system
Why businesses are investing in fleet data
Data has many meanings. Gone are the days of 'dot on the map' tracking capabilities that any gps-enabled device can supply. The requirements of each business differ greatly, and as times have changed, the needs have also evolved. The sophistication of data has expanded to deliver the real financial costs of a vehicle and driver on the road.Build Your Solution Explore our Platform
While the direct costs of crashes, such as vehicle repair and insurance payments can be calculated with relative ease, the indirect costs are severe. Suffering business loss, litigation expenses, loss of productivity due to incident analysis from enforcement, can ensure the company suffers for years to come.
Safety data provides fleet managers with the eyes and ears to be a backseat driver without stepping foot into a vehicle. Managers can assess the strongest and weakest drivers in their fleet by consistently monitoring the safety behavior of their employees on the road.
In fact, a recent Teletrac Navman study* concluded that 40% of drivers change their behaviour after their first safety warning.
The driver safety solutions arm managers with the ability to view safety data on demand. They can quickly measure a fleet’s safety average through the score indicator based on safety parameters, including harsh braking, harsh acceleration, speeding and stop sign violations.
This is furthered by the ability to see the top 10 worst and best drivers in a fleet—including an individual driver safety score— allowing managers to monitor safety performance across their drivers.
Driver Behaviour Monitoring
What Does Driver Behaviour Data Measure?
Speeding for each vehicle is determined by matching GPS data to a map database which contains speed limit information. GPS speed is then compared to actual speed limits while the length of each vehicle infraction is recorded.
GPS data is used to determine which streets a vehicle has travelled. The data is then matched with a map database to determine the location of each violation.
The number of heavy braking incidents based on G-Force and the type of vehicle (light, medium or heavy).
The number of acceleration incidents based on G-Force and the type of vehicle. Harsh acceleration can cause unnecessary wear and tear on the vehicle and can pose a safety hazard to the driver and other vehicles
The number of forceful or quick cornering incidents that are identified for each driver or time period.
Our fleet management system empowers users to receive insight into vehicle safety based on key performance metrics and recorded events, such as speeding and harsh braking. The results, including a measurable safety score, are showcased on data-rich dashboards.
This advanced feature pinpoints safety violations and inefficiencies—such as worst safety rankings and more— for an entire fleet or a single vehicle. Managers can use this effective option to prevent vehicle abuse and monitor unsafe driving behaviour.
The Dashboards feature enables users to get a remote look at important vehicle performance metrics to best measure key inefficiencies across a fleet—right from their desktops or mobile devices.
This flexible analytics tool features data-rich, color-coded dashboards that showcase selected trip data for single vehicles, sub-groups, or an entire fleet. Users can drill down in to any of the metrics for a magnified look at engine performance, including: vehicle usage and kilometres driven, travel time, idle time, PTO time, fuel consumption and the total fuel cost accrued during a particular journey. The best and worst vehicle rankings are clearly displayed to indicate which vehicles within the fleet are the most productive during the workday.
Vehicle and driver behaviour software provides a clean snapshot of metrics related to fleet performance, including a close look at fuel consumption and costs, idle time, travel trends and safety activity. Available reports include:
- Distance Driven
- Executive Summary
- Time Sheet
- Driver Stops
