5 Ways Autonomous Vehicles Will Impact Fleet Management

The sleek, futuristic, driver-less Batmobile is no longer a thing of science fiction.

In 2015, the Audi A7 drove 550 miles by itself; in 2016, Olli, the autonomous minibus, was released on the streets of Washington DC and a few selected Pittsburg Uber users got to test their self-driving on Ford Fusion. Thirty-three groups of auto brands and tech giants are involved in this industry, with Google, Apple, and Tesla looking to deploy fully driverless level 5 (L5) autonomous vehicles well within the next decade.

How to Detect Bad Driver Behavior and Reduce Risk

Telematics is a useful fleet management tool that can track and detect bad driver behavior. But does the “big brother” perception turn you off? Why are so many companies deploying this tool and why has the usage of telematics become commonplace? When evaluating the management of your fleet the most important issue is not cost. It is risk. Telematics is a tool that helps to manage and reduce risk. It’s also evolving and incorporating new devices, technologies, and metrics. Dashboard cameras, driver feedback in real time, and competition around driver safety are not the future. They are here today.

​Moving Forward and Beyond Telematics

Telematics can now change corporate culture in very positive ways. Sound intriguing? Perhaps those techies who believe cellular technology will save their lives are correct in their assessments at least somewhat. Although conventional cell phone ownership means having access to Google, E911, and other major location services, owning a fleet of vehicles with telematics devices provides more security than relying on drivers’ mobile devices. Some reasons are obvious, and others are not.

​4 Reasons to Use Automated Mileage Tracking

Having a mobile workforce today means tracking mileage and being aware of the fact that every mile counts. Automated mileage tracking helps businesses better manage mileage logging, tracking, and reporting, making the overall process more efficient and reliable. With improved telematics, companies are further able to save time, improve accuracy, and make better data-driven decisions…
