Benefits

  • Manage vehicles and drivers, monitor running time and vehicle weight (trucks, coaches) via web application (vehicle tracking platform).
  • View the drivers’ travel history on a map (Google map), set boundaries (Geofencing), monitor drivers’ entry and exit history at the bus stop, departure station, and destination.
  • Supply chain management (logistics) through the system.
  • Drivers can access schedules, receive alerts when exceed speed limit or go outside the Geofencing area (set by the administrator) on the mobile application (smart phone, tablet) equipped on the vehicle and connect to vehicle tracking platform (web server) via mobile network (3G / 4G / 5G).

Step

1

Set up the device to monitor vehicle specifications (such as speedometer, brakes (ABS, Hash braking), vehicle speed, weight, positioning device. etc.)

Connect and send data via mobile network (3G / 4G / 5G) to vehicle tracking platform (cloud-base web application).

Step

2
