Wireless has entered into a partnership with SpeedGauge, a provider of speed
management analytics to offer a new GPS-based speed monitoring service for its
OnlineAVL2 fleet tracking system.
The SpeedGauge service enables fleet managers to identify high-risk driving
behavior and analyze speeding patterns over time.
“With SpeedGauge, managers can
zero in on habitual speeders, use the information to corrective action, and
dramatically reduce speeding incidents and related risk and costs through
training and policy enforcement,” said Renaat Ver Eecke, VP and general
manager, Navman Wireless North America.
The company said that the new
service is available for fleets in the U.S. and Canada. It combines the two
companies’ technologies to help fleet operators reduce risk, fuel consumption
and maintenance costs by detecting violations of posted speed limits and/or
company speed policies.
By using this service users can
establish thresholds for driving over posted speed with different settings for
cars, trucks and hazmat vehicles. Also, they can receive daily, weekly or
monthly emails that list the time, date, location, speed limit, actual speed
and other key data for each speeding incident.
In addition, users can see the
precise location of any violation on a map by clicking on any incident. The new
service offer access to a variety of trend reports online, including charts and
graphs providing at-a-glance information on speed violations and improvements
The new SpeedGauge service is the
second enhancement to the OnlineAVL2 platform in a month. In January, Navman
Wireless announced the addition of a route optimization capability powered by
Dashfly that enables dispatchers to calculate the fastest and shortest driving
routes for up to 25 stops with one click.
A few months back, Telit Wireless Solutions, a global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) wireless
technology, announced its plan to purchase Navman Wireless OEM Solutions for $3
million in cash.
