Abax launches driving behaviour solution
Telematics and tracking specialist Abax has launched a new Driving Behaviour tool that enables fleets to increase efficiency and safety by monitoring how drivers use vehicles on a day-to-day basis.
Available in all the firm’s markets, the solution makes use of the existing Abax Triplog GPS fleet management system, with no further hardware needed, and uses an algorithm to determine how the Abax unit is mounted to the vehicle. When the unit’s accelerometer reaches a certain threshold, it will send a message to the Abax system that will analyse the data and create a harsh braking, harsh acceleration or harsh cornering event. These are then used to generate an individual sore for each driver. Key driving events are also logged in the Google integrated map, enabling fleets to see when and where events occurred and ask the driver for more information.
Fleets can then use the data to compare poor driving trends and apply targeted training to where it’s most needed.
Chris Miller, country manager Abax UK, commented: “A lot of our customers have asked for this feature and our technology team has listened and delivered.
“Driving Behaviour is an amazing tool.”
