Telematics Devices: How They Work

Once installed, these high-tech devices will automatically upload data about the activities of anyone who drives your company’s vehicle(s). With telematics devices in your fleet, you can learn more about your employees’ driving habits and keep track of your vehicles.

8 Things You Can Learn About Your Commercial Vehicles

Telematics devices can provide you and your fleet manager with valuable information and insights such as:

  1. Speed limits – know if your drivers are regularly keeping within speed limits
  2. Time-efficiency – learn which of your drivers consistently take the most time-efficient routes
  3. Habits – understand how frequently your drivers brake, accelerate and speed
  4. Location – know where every fleet vehicle is 24/7/365
  5. Driving score – find out which of your drivers perform more efficiently on the highway, in urban settings, during the daytime and evenings
  6. Personal vs. company use – know when a driver’s day starts and ends and accurately track personal as well as business mileage
  7. Accident notification – know in real-time where and when a crash happens
  8. Vehicle wear and tear – get access to detailed reports that can help you to diagnose problems before they happen

You can install telematics devices across fleets of corporate trucks, cars, trailers, shipping containers and more. Telematics are also being used in satellites, wireless car safety and emergency communications as well as to support smartphone car-sharing applications.
