Opportunities to use telematics more effectively

2015-08-06

Brake the road safety charity recently published a fleet safety survey report detailing how can technology can form a vital part of the road risk management mix, and greatly aid safe driving, vehicles and journeys.

 

Features of telematics (Fleet safety survey report 2015 part 1: technology)

Use of telematics (Fleet safety survey report 2015 part 1: technology)

Use of telematics

The results state that telematics is commonly being used for GPS tracking, speed monitoring and detecting harsh acceleration and braking, whereas forward and driver-facing cameras are rare. 

In a positive light, telematics is being used by most operators to inform driver training, and to give feedback to drivers. However, only half of fleets are using telematics to inform journey planning

All in all the results suggests that there are opportunities for fleets to use telematics more effectively and that many companies could go further, and learn from good practice by others, in taking full advantage of safety technology available.

About the report
138 fleet managers completed the survey, 131 of whom were UK-based. Respondents manage nearly 26,000 vehicles and 40,000 employees driving for work. The results cannot be generalised to the entire at-work driving fleet, but rather can be used to explore the technology used on fleets and can give an opportunity for benchmarking.
The size of the fleets varied: the smallest were single-vehicle operators; the largest had over 2,000 vehicles. The average fleet size was 186 vehicles. Most fleets contain a variety of types of vehicles. The exception, apart from the smallest fleets of only a handful of vehicles, is a few larger car-only fleets.
