Navman Wireless Adds Driver Scorecards to Fleet Tracking Platform

OnlineAVL2 Upgrade Measures Driver Behavior That Affects Safety & Fuel Efficiency; Also Offers New Reports Segmented by Driver Groups & Vehicle Types

GLENVIEW, Ill., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Navman Wireless USA today announced the addition of a broad new Driver Behavior feature set to its OnlineAVL2 fleet tracking system, enabling fleet operators to identify drivers who are compromising safety and fuel efficiency by their behavior behind the wheel. The driver performance features are the most comprehensive and configurable in the industry, with four new reports and two new dashboard KPIs that quickly pinpoint trouble spots while also allowing drilldown to a specific driver directly from the system's Dynamic Dashboard regardless of fleet size.

Available immediately in the U.S., the latest OnlineAVL2 upgrade also introduces new reports that allow managers to view fleet performance by both driver groups and vehicle types. These two industry-first views expand the information available to help fleet supervisors spot opportunities to reduce costs and optimize operations.

Driver Scorecards

OnlineAVL2's new Driver Scorecards measure behaviors such as speeding, idling, harsh braking, high RPMs or other integrated user-defined driving habits, utilizing metrics gathered from Navman Wireless GPS tracking units installed in a given fleet. If sensors that detect seatbelt use, emergency brake deployment or other driver activities are connected to the system's GPS tracking units, the Driver Scorecards can incorporate that information as well. The resulting data is then available for at-a-glance examination with:

  • Scorecard Summary, Detailed Scorecard Trip and Progressive Scorecard Reports that instantly identify drivers with below-average performance, show the impact of their behavior on fuel consumption, and permit drilldown to trip details when needed.
  • Individual Driver Report Cards – including personal scores as well as comparison of drivers against fleet averages – that can be shared with the driver and used to modify unsatisfactory behaviors.
  • Configurable Driver Score/Driver Average Score dashboard KPIs – including the ability to choose the drivers and time period represented as well as drilldown for details – to allow real-time monitoring of problem drivers and intervention for urgent problems like speeding and excessive idling.

Reporting by Driver Group

New Driver Groups support in OnlineAVL2 allows fleet managers to classify their drivers by region, business unit, service type or any other category of their choice, and then generate any Driver Scorecard report or driver-based dashboard KPI by driver group. This enables managers to compare performance by driver group and use that information to improve driver behavior in groups that lag behind those with the top scores.   

Reporting by Vehicle Type

OnlineAVL2 users now also have the ability to view fleet performance data by vehicle type to aid in usage and cost analysis. Construction companies can use this new report to determine whether utilization of their skid steers aligns with their budget for that asset type, for example; school bus companies can compare utilization of their wheelchair-accessible and non-wheelchair-accessible vehicles; and so on.        

Navman Wireless' OnlineAVL2 fleet tracking platform provides location, operations and performance data for both on-highway vehicles and construction heavy equipment from a single interface. Components include the back-end OnlineAVL2 application, delivered under the Software-as-a-Service model with no major in-house software installation or maintenance required; the Qube on-highway and ruggedized Qtanium off-highway GPS tracking devices; and in-vehicle M-Nav and MDT mobile messaging/turn-by-turn GPS navigation devices.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core...

NuoDB just introduced the Swifts 2.1 Release. In this demo at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO of NuoDB, Inc., discussed why scaling databases in the cloud is challenging, why building your application on top of the infrastructure that is designed with this in mind makes a difference, and what you can do with NuoDB that simplifies your programming model, your operations model.
CA Technologies released a new study – “DevOps: The Worst-Kept Secret to Winning in the Application Economy” – that reveals that 82% of enterprises in Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) already have or plan to adopt a DevOps strategy, a 12 point increase from last year’s figure of 70%. DevOps is a methodology which helps foster collaboration between the teams that create and test applications (Dev) with those that maintain them in production environments (Ops). Vanson Bourne conducted the survey with...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session a...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. Acco...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices.

You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. But what about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today's databases are anything but agile - they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application an...
What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
More and more file-based and machine generated data is being created every day causing exponential data and content growth, and creating a management nightmare for IT managers.
