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 help to transform an organization and their operations and make them more efficient, more agile, and more nimble to move into the cloud or to move between cloud providers and create an agnostic tool set," noted Jeremy Steinert, DevOps Services Practice Lead at WSM International, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...
