Telematic Electronic Logging Devices
Telematic Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) With GPS Capabilities to Protect Your CSA Score
In addition to our premier stand-alone ELD, VDO RoadLog™, we include telematics, which add the capability of integrating GPS to further assist your fleet in conforming to FMCSA rules.
What are Telematics?
This state-of-the-art technology uses telecommunication devices for sending, receiving, and storing data that affects control of your vehicles. Telematics service providers (TSPs) use Wi-Fi, cellular, or satellite connections to communicate this information.
There’s a world of useful data that telematics devices can communicate to help you keep your finger on the pulse of your fleet operations:
• Improve driver productivity—Location tracking, identifying unplanned stops, maintaining an on-vehicle library, and simply facilitating driver communications with email and fax.
• Support fleet operations—Tracking vehicle productivity by remotely monitoring and diagnosing vehicle faults (tire pressure and temperature monitoring, etc.).
• Manage daily operations—Collect and monitor routing and operations info (odometer readings, fuel levels, and load locations, etc.). Integrate maintenance data, paperless vehicle inspections, and driver logs.
• Improve safety programs—Detect poor driving habits and critical events, and oversee anti-theft systems.
• Improve your bottom line—Telematics afford the capability to report and analyze fuel economy, wasted fuel from idling, optimized routes for optimal fuel efficiency, and fuel usage for IFTA compliancy.
Studies show that telematics reduce the cost of owning heavy-duty trucks by up to 10%, because the number of breakdowns, downtime, and repair expenses are significantly decreased.
Compliancy is one of the most significant benefits of using telematic systems. Telematics streamlines your ability to report fuel tax, adhere to the CSA 2010 Safety Accountability Program, and collect electronic driver logs.
With the ELD rule becoming the law of the land, AECS is at the forefront of providing the telematics devices that keep you on the road while saving money and protecting your CSA score.
