15 Sep Monitoring of the movement and the working parameters of the vehicle
Monitoring of the movement and the working parameters of a vehicle, machine or other type of mobile object is one of the main goals of GPS tracking systems. This is the exact function of the standard GPS monitoring service – to position the traced objects on an electronic map and to track the data which is recorded from their movement in the past.
In this domain, GPS Logistic can be classified as the most user-friendly and multi-functional system for GPS monitoring. It combines the data of position and direction of the vehicle with various working parameters. This is done in the following way: the placement of the object is displayed on Google maps and the controlled parameters are visualized in a graphic dashboard, consisting of speedometer, mileage display, rpm bar, thermometer of the engine, ignition indicator, level of the car battery, level of the fuel in the tank. This bundle of real-time incoming data grows into comprehensible line charts, running simultaneously with the trace that the vehicles has left on the map. This enables the user easily to interpret the information for the travels, stops, rests and work, completed by the vehicles and the machines.
The customers of Advanced GPS Technology have access to the full spectrum of reports and queries, that are derived from tracing the movement and working parameters of the vehicle or the machine. Each user can choose the level of the details he/she wants to observe. Some of the available instruments are:
Summarized query of the traveled distance, working time of the engine, fuel consumption and quantity of the fuel refillings for the whole park for a chosen time period;
Individual report for the traveled distance, working time of the engine, fuel consumption and quantity of the fuel refillings, highest reached speed by a specific vehicle for chosen period;
Electronic waybill, showing the traveled routes, hour of arrival at an address, working time, the places visited and time spent at each address, the traveled distance between the points;
Visual overview of the trace, drawn by the movement of the vehicle or the work of the machine, enriched with graphics and filters, which enable the user to analyse the completed tasks for a chosen period, day, time frame or road section;
Setting a maintenance notifications for changing the engine oil, renewing insurances, performing technical checks, paying leasing fees or supplying consumables;
Options for route planning, working with addresses and coordinates, tracing the movement of the mobile objects from the perspective of static objects and so on.
GPS Logistic supports various upgrades of the standard GPS monitoring. Some of them are: identification of the driver, smart separation between private and corporate use of the vehicle, tracing data from the board computer of the object via CAN bus, tracking the temperature from the back section of a truck or a van, precise electronic fuel level sensor for correct measuring of the quantity of the fuel refillings, fuel consumption and prevention of fuel thefts, tracking the status of a door or a switch, communication with the driver through navigation device or tablet, automatic download of data from the tachograph and many other additional modules. These extras to the GPS equipment give access to new reports and functions, which expand the control and rise the efficiency of the management process regarding the fleet.
