Driver Behavior Monitoring

Driver behaviour monitoring is an important safety and cost-saving measure. Our devices allow comprehensive driver behavior monitoring solutions. With multiple flexible options in order to collect and review data gathered.

Driver behaviour monitoring allows:

Cost-saving as abuse/misuse of assets can be detected and prevented
Compliance with law and regulation (see IVMS)
Speeding violations to be recorded for safety, and fines allocated to the driver
Hours of work/driving logged for billing, payment, and proof of service.

Driver ID

In order to effectively monitor the behavior of drivers, we must first know who is driving!

Driver Behaviour and Driver ID Monitoring

Our devices support a range of driver ID options. Devices can be configured to sound a buzzer or immobilize an asset until a valid driver ID tag is scanned – meaning drivers can’t ‘forget’ to log on.

Driver Identification is an important safety tool, as it allows for people to be accounted for. It can also be used to ensure disciplinary action can be taken should a driver violate any laws or safety regulations.

Location Tracking

Know where your drivers are at all times – even when out of mobile coverage. Get reports on important events such as accidents, rollovers, and overspeed events. This is fundamental to ensuring the safety of workers.

Driver Behaviour and Location Tracking with Geofencing

Geofence alerts allow keep-out and no-go zones to be established. The time drivers spend at locations can be tracked to optimize workflow, reducing dead time, and preventing time theft. Get an alert if your employees are where they shouldn’t be during work hours!

Speed Monitoring

Monitor speeding events via reports and alerts. Local speed by road available with TG-PRO, to detect when drivers are violating posted speed limits. Speed reports can be used to discipline drivers, assign speeding fines to the offending driver rather, and prove compliance to authorities.

Devices can be installed to provide in-cab alerts and feedback to drivers when over the speed limit.

Speed Monitoring by Groupings

Harsh Event Monitoring

Our devices are fitted with 3-Axis Accelerometers to provide harsh event monitoring. Receive instant notifications if a driver is involved in an accident so immediate, life-saving action can be taken.

Harsh acceleration, braking and cornering alerts (and in-cab feedback) prevent vehicle abuse and promote safe driving.

Engine Hours and Idling

Report on trip times, moving time, and idle time. These metrics can be used to:

Monitor the odometer and run hours of an asset for preventative maintenance
Bill customers by time or distance
Detect when vehicles are left running unnecessarily, wasting fuel.

Driver Behaviour Engine Idling Reporting

In Vehicle Alerts

Devices can be configured to provide feedback to the driver via an externally wired buzzer or internal buzzer on some devices for a hassle-free installation.

Notify drivers when:

They have been driving too long (driver fatigue)
They are over a set speed
On harsh driving events
A seatbelt is undone, or a secondary piece of equipment (e.g. a pump) is left running along with the engine.

Speed limits can be based upon geofences – so feedback can be provided when a driver is on-site to keep their speed below the site’s maximum speed.
