Beyond the Basics: 5 New Uses for Telematics
In the years since the first fleet telematics solutions were introduced, the ubiquitous black boxes have become the equivalent of a Swiss Army knife for optimizing vehicle and driver performance. Read on for five examples of newer telematics uses that are emerging to address the evolving needs of automotive and work truck fleets.
Getting More Value Out of Trailers with Smart Technology
Trailers have traditionally been a blind spot in fleet management, leaving operators without visibility into critical issues such as trailer location, maintenance needs and open cargo capacity. That means there has been less oversight of the moneymakers of the fleet – the reefers, box trucks and semi-trailers that carry the cargo that pays the bills – than of the tractors that generate no revenue on their own.
The Next AI Benefit: Better Driver Scorecards
Driver scorecards have been used for over a decade for a variety of purposes ranging from measuring idling, number of trips, ELD compliance and time on site to identifying drivers who present a significant safety risk, but they have been an imperfect solution for safety monitoring.
New AI Strategies Reduce Dashcam Size and Cost
The use of artificial intelligence is bringing important new value to video telematics, adding functions such as real-time alerts that help drivers avoid collisions and smart event analysis that saves fleet managers hours of time by reducing false-positive reports of risky driving behavior. But the widely touted use of “edge AI” in which virtually all AI processing is performed on the camera has several downsides that affect driver visibility as well as fleet budgets.
Adoption of Multi-Camera Technology is on the Rise Among Fleets
Heavy goods vehicle drivers on the 117-mile M25 motorway in London are required to meet specific visibility standards after legislation was passed in 2019 because of the high number of pedestrian and bicyclist deaths involving heavy-duty trucks.
Make Your Fleet Safer Without Purchasing New Vehicles
Today’s low truck inventory and high prices make it difficult to upgrade fleets, but aftermarket products can equip aging vehicles with new safety technology.
CES 2022: Ottonomy Talks About First Fully Autonomous Delivery Robots in an Airport
For this segment, CES 2022 tackled the world of autonomous robots through Ottonomy. The robotic startup discussed how these machines work as delivery bots for indoor and outdoor activities earlier this week.
CES 2022: AI is Driving Innovation in ‘Smart’ Tech
Despite all the stories about big companies bailing out of CES 2022 amidst the latest surge in COVID-19 cases, the consumer electronics show in Las Vegas is still the place to be for robots, autonomous vehicles, smart gadgets, and their inventors — an opportunity to take stock of what’s required to build practical machine intelligence into a consumer product.
