Vehicle fleet management systems are becoming increasing popular as these can decrease expenses when it comes to managing drivers and simultaneously aid in running a well-organized fleet. Additionally, companies can create profiles of drivers through data feedback to the fleet management system. This helps in keeping track of the efficiency of drivers who are becoming a costly resource to the company through undisciplined driving and poor time management. Using the data obtained from the fleet management system, drivers can be effectively managed.
State and National highways of India are full of surprises due to imprecise road engineering, lack of pavement facilities and untrained drivers. Therefore understanding the road environment through risk perception is very vital. It is very important to maintain tracking mechanisms and vehicle upkeep through vehicle tracking system. The effectiveness of transportation can be definitely enhanced through the timely monitoring of these aspects.
The working of a fleet tracking system is simple. A GPS hardware should be installed in the vehicle. The device installed in the vehicle transmits a signal to orbiting satellites which transmit this information back to a specified computer. This information is then displayed on maps, allowing the fleet manager to monitor speed and exact whereabouts. GPS device provides information on the exact location. A fleet tracking software can potentially give real-time data of the journey.
