In this second of three blog postings, PRECO dives into the changing role of telematics within the heavy-duty industry and the influence that it has on operator and organizational efficiency.
For heavy-duty fleets, telematics vendors are starting to incorporate ADAS’ safe vehicle and machine operation data into their solution suite. This expansion allows safety data and analytics to be presented as a part of the overall telematics application. As previously discussed in last week’s blog, The Boston Consulting Group pointed out that “commercial vehicles are ahead of the curve” in terms of adopting advanced driver assistance solutions (ADAS) as an innovative solution to improve safety. Operator efficiency and safety within the heavy-duty industry directly influences the productivity and profitability of the operator – in all markets including on-road transportation, utilities, waste, construction and mining.
