During 2012 VeriLocation is rolling out it's first tranche of development work around systems that build upon the expertise from fleet telematics. These solutions sit on top of the data derived from vehicle tracking and CANbus data and integrate into clients front end Transport Management requirements. The first iteration is our T-TMS or Telematics-Transport Management Solution which is being rolled out to a number of large UK fleets. Primarily aimed at "own fleet" distribution networks that deliver to retail stores / locations from multiple NDC / RDC's. The key benefit is to allow depots to:
VeriLocation has now completed testing of our digital tacho interface , linking the GPS telematics system to the lorry tacho. This means that it is possible to view in real time the driver information such as "driving hours" without the need to ask the driver or read his driver card. Fleets looking to comply with industry standards and optimise resources will benefit from this new technology. System connects to Siemens VDO & StoneRidge boxes.
VeriLocation has now deployed it's first Android App to allow subscribers to the fleet solution the ability to carry out vehicle checks in line with VOSA guidelines and record these using an Android smartphone for viewing on the VeriLocation website as a report. Whats more the App is free !
New for 2012 is our low cost trailer tracking ID unit which comprises of two devices. Firstly is a small ID unit that is fitted to the brake light on the rear of the trailer. This becomes energised when the brake light is powered up on a braking event. A unique ID is then sent over the trailers wiring loom and through the susie connector by over-laying the information onto the 24v DC vehicle electrics. On the main tractor unit just connected to the trailer is a sensor device listening for this ID from the power supply. Once received it then identifies the relevant trailer and displays this on the tracking account and "borrows" the tractor unit's GPS position as long as it is connected. This "proxy" tracking works well where a company uses their own dedicated fleet and have many trailers as a ratio to tractors. Called Power Line Communication (plc) it is similar to many home broadband offerings where wifi signals are poor in a home.
