Intelligent Transportation Systems: Technology That Deserves Attention!

Stay one step ahead of your competitors!

Use a partner to help you diagnose and identify the best tracking and management solution for your vehicle fleet to move your projects forward quickly and objectively.

If your business sector requires the transportation of goods, intelligent transportation systems (ITS) can greatly help you. In an increasingly connected world, the use of technologies offered by ITS provides highly competitive advantages:

  • Detailed monitoring of the activities of the vehicle fleet;
  • Increased transportation security;
  • Increased productivity;
  • Reduced expenses of operations and maintenance;
  • Better fuel management;
  • Customer loyalty;
  • Improved company profitability.

With wireless technologies and smart sensors, assets can be tracked and real-time information from each vehicle in the fleet, including their location, vehicle condition, and even the hours of service.

During transportation, in addition to the location, a constant monitoring of parameters is performed through connectors and standards widely used in the industry, such as: OBD-II, JBUS, SAE J1962, J1939, FMS.

The acquisition of information from the on-board computer (ECU) and the other major components of the vehicle is performed by the equipment of the solution which is responsible for the real-time transmission of metrics to the system management console.

Thanks to GPS networks, Wi-Fi and cellular transmission, the system accesses and effectively uses information from each vehicle, offering the administrator interactive features of dynamic monitoring accessible at any point.

As an example, alarm features allow to draw on the map areas of interest corresponding to the location of each client. Upon arrival of a goods vehicle, an automated email can be routed to the receiving establishment. This flexibility opens up many possible scenarios, including that of being able to interact with the company’s applications.

The transportation industry being controlled, companies must respect existing regulations on hours of service. Data collection in the vehicle’s ecosystem, particularly those concerning the engine, can easily be supported by applications that facilitate the entry and management by an automated monitoring of the driver’s logbook. The job of the managers is greatly facilitated, either at the allocation of working hours, during audits or driver-vehicle inspection made by the authorities.

Retention of travel history is also a valuable asset in case of accident, litigation or prosecution. Geolocation, information obtained from telemetry and access to vehicle registries are other factors that add to the evidence and that can be decisive in court.
