Today, innovation and new technologies are what set the rules of the game. Their constant evolution and development has brought us many benefits to apply in almost all sectors.
In the transport and logistics sector there are innumerable advances that have been introduced, such as the monitoring of vehicle fleets.
In today’s post we will talk about telemetry and why you should include it in your vehicles.
Telemetry is the technology that allows physical magnitudes to be measured remotely through sensors. The measurement of signals that are normally transmitted using wireless technology to a system operator, from where they can be used, is carried out remotely.
Telemetry systems measure and track waves, temperature, vibration, pressure, voltage, altitude, speed, time, among other magnitudes.
Telemetry applied to road transport allows managing the entire transport process in the most efficient way possible.
Road transport and telemetry
As we have mentioned, telemetry allows the entire transport process to be managed, providing information about the route and the status of the vehicle and the load, among other things.
The information collected by these systems will then be used by transport companies and operators to introduce improvements in their business areas.
The way in which the information is sent to the control center is usually wireless (satellite and mobile network).
The fact of implementing a telemetric and fleet management system produces multiple advantages for companies by saving time and costs.
How does telemetry help you in managing your fleet?
Telemetry in vehicle fleet management has multiple advantages and benefits, but the most notable are:
Provides information on the vehicle status in technical aspects such as vehicle mechanics (need for repairs…etc), fuel level, tire pressure…etc. This is advanced technology that will increase the useful life of your fleet.
This is one of the basic and most widespread functionalities, but it is undoubtedly one of the most important. Knowing the exact location of each of your vehicles will help you save time and money.
The fact of incorporating telemetry in your vehicles will help reduce the chances that your vehicle will be sanctioned and optimize deadlines.
Helps to know the state of the load at all times. For example in refrigerated loads, to know its exact temperature. It can also help prevent merchandise theft.
It should be noted that there are different levels of telemetry, so that it is a scalable technology, making it accessible to most transport companies.
As you can see, telemetry has great benefits for managing your vehicle fleet. At Globspot we are specialists in this type of technology and we can help you improve the results of your company by contributing to greater cost and time savings.
