The biggest challenge in the logistic industry is vehicle tracking, knowing where everything is and where it’s heading.
IoT vehicle tracking solutions provide advanced mobile data roaming connectivity to resolve the problems faced with traditional vehicle tracking.
Because of ever-increasing road traffic, rising fuel and labour costs, logistic companies require an effective solution to keep in business.
Hence, IoT-based fleet tracking systems facilitates vehicles with sensors, data and the Internet to monitor fleets in a smarter way.
As a result, transformation fleet management into a more sustainable efficient, reliable, economical and automated business.
How an IoT-Based Fleet Vehicle Tracking System Works
Location data collected by on-vehicle sensors, including GPS and OBD II sensors, makes it easier to get control of your fleet.
GPS data is transmitted to a host over a mobile data connection.
As a result, this is fast enough to track the movement of a vehicle in real time.
Data from all sensors is sent to the local gateway over a mobile data connection as the vehicle moves.
This gives you real-time tracking, hence you can monitor driver’s routes and dispatch tasks efficiently.
You can also get complete record about the vehicle, route, location, driver, time and delivery from the secure application server.
The OBD II sensors, provide a detailed analysis of the engine speed, torque at transmission, accelerator and pedal position.
This gives you complete control of your vehicles and enables you to check the operational health of your fleet.
Many of the IoT Based Fleet vehicle tracking systems provide predictive maintenance.
Therefore, assisting in ordering parts, components and vehicle availability, before it causes an issue.
How IoT is helping to solve Vehicle Tracking Challenges
IoT provides many new tools to gather, share, and act on real-time information, helping companies to make rapid decisions.
Logistic companies can move to the cloud for their daily operations and track fleets anywhere, anytime, and on any device.
Then using the collective data from IoT devices, logistic companies gain valuable insights into driver behaviour, scheduling and effective routing.
IoT opens the doors to new possibilities by supporting third-party APIs for traffic reporting, average speed, and driver behaviour monitoring.
With the proper application of IoT, logistic companies can benefit from improved performance behind the wheel.
Also, capture useful fleet data to reduce running costs and make optimal use of resources.
