GPSi takes on a new approach to Iridium satellite tracking

Posted by.. | Featured, hardWARE, Press Release, smartWARE | No Comments

The introduction of dual mode Bluetooth technology including BT 4.0 to the Roadscout® device has enabled the introduction of our smartTRAX Iridium satellite tracking technology. smartTRAX provides the RoadScout  product range with ‘grab and go’ satellite connectivity for vehicle telematics in places where GSM coverage is unavailable.

Further enhancing the offering, the smartTRAX device will automatically perform as a personal tracking device when removed from the vehicle ensuring the safety of your ‘lone workers’ in the field.

This seamless and wireless functionality replaces conventional wired solutions and ensures vehicles and staff can be tracked in the most remote locations with confidence. The package provides fleet managers with an opportunity to seamlessly support additional features such as duress alarms and two messaging whilst supporting all aspects of our current IVMS platform  including driver behaviour and vehicle alerts.

Incorporating a long-life lithium rechargeable battery, the durable and shock resistant smartTRAX will provide organisations with a cost-effective option to extend the safe working environment of field staff.

Fleet Safety Manager News GPS Innovations

GPS Innovations set to deploy speed limit database

Posted by.. | Featured, Press Release | No Comments

GPS Innovations is partnering with Data Solutions to integrate key speed and location data nation-wide, providing Fleet and Safety Managers with unprecedented access to safety information.

GPS Innovations is a leading Australian supplier of GPS fleet management technology. Its suite of driver safety products includes the RoadScout (a plug and play in vehicle monitoring system (IVMS)) and FleetConnect™, (a web-based advanced vehicle location software (AVL)). The posted speed limit database (PSLD) provides national speed limit data.

How it works

This dynamic partnering will see GPS Innovations’ FleetConnect™ software integrate data with the PSLD. All recorded vehicle data returned by the RoadScout IVMS through FleetConnect™ is validated against the PSLD to give a clear record of all overspeed events for each trip taken.

This unprecedented access to safety information associated with the movement and behaviour of fleet drivers will enable fleet managers to better manage and improve their overall fleet safety profile.

Coming soon

Posted speed limit data will be a standard feature in FleetConnect™ from 1 July 2014 and will be available to all existing and new GPS Innovations customers.

Stuart Mullins, CEO of GPS Innovations commented that ‘Many customers utilise FleetConnect to ensure their drivers are driving safely and to reduce overall fleet risk. Excessive speed increases the risk of accidents and presents a safety hazard to other drivers. By adding posted speed limit reports and alerts to our offering, fleet managers can now have even more insight into their drivers’ behaviour at their fingertips.’

‘This initiative has been tested across a number of fleets with great success for over 6 months and has already produced substantive driver behaviour change initiatives for development partners. This contribution to our driver scoring initiative, along with our more traditional metrics, will greatly assist Fleet Managers to work with their drivers to better manage their overall fleet safety profile.’
