Weekly Savings

Yearly Savings

26 676

Reasons for actions

•Fuel efficient driving is save driving.

•Estimated: Monitoring & training saves up to 30% on fuel costs .

•On average, every 1 mph increase in speed results in a 0.14 miles per gallon decrease in fuel economy. Now, suppose that you drive 2,500 miles per week and decide to increase your average speed by 10 mph to save time. As the average 18-wheeler gets 5.9 mpg, your truck’s fuel economy would drop to 4.5 mpg. Thus, by increasing your average speed by 10 mph, your truck would consume approximately 132 extra gallons of fuel at a cost of nearly $513. Is that 10 mph increase really worth $513 per week?

SWEET SPOT DISTANCE (%) – optimum band of RPM (green band)

+125%

May ’08  VALUE

31,6%-45% (average 39,1%)

AUG ’08 VALUE

86%-91% (average 87,9%)

TARGET VALUE

over 90%

Sweet Spot
Optimum revolution band - is between

1100 – 2100.  If the driver hits this during each driving motion fuel efficiency will rise

TOP GEAR (%)

+17,9%

May ’08  VALUE

4%-32% (average 22%)

AUG ’08 VALUE

29%-60% (average 39,9%)

TARGET VALUE

over 60%

The indicator shows the percentage of distance travelled on the vehicle’ top gear.

By using the top gear as much as possible means that the engine is utilizing the lowest possible rev band and is at its most efficient.

OVER REV (%) – Driving a vehicle when exceeded the recommended RPM

-12%

May ’08  VALUE

• average 13,3%

AUG ’08 VALUE

• average 1,3%

TARGET VALUE

 <1%

Over Rev is essentially where the vehicle is revved outside of the Optimum Band.  This puts more strain on the engine, thus consuming more fuel

IDLE TIME (%) – Stop with running engine

- 61%

May ’08  VALUE

•5.4%

AUG ’08 VALUE

•2.1%

TARGET VALUE

•<1.5%

This indicator shows the percentage of time when the vehicle is stopped (over 4 minutes) with the engine running. This leads to fuel wastage.

HARSH BREAKING (COUNT)

- 30%

Harsh Breaking – The indicator on the report acts as a counter.
This is where the driver has had to break so hard that the Seat Belt locks.

May ’08  VALUE

•1-9 per week        average = 5

AUG ’08 VALUE

•3-4 per month     average = 3.5

TARGET VALUE

unconscious safe habit

Drivers trained

•“I had no  awareness of certain factors affecting the economy and driving safety.”

•“I think about offensive behaviours and more economical mode of driving.”

–Some drivers are concerned about the possibilities of the system.

–Daily drivers report.

Business Case​

•Using fuel more efficiently means:

–Lower costs, improved environmental performance and emissions

•Reduced: incidents, cost (insurance premium), damage, unproductive downtime for vehicle repair

•Outputs.

–Daily SAFED Reports

–Reinforcement of procedures, policy, regulations and best practice.

Incident Alert

A “G sensor ” helps

Increase response time to a Vehicle accident

Increase Driver Safety

Cameras on a Truck helps

• Discourage  Robberies

• Monitor Driver behavior

An Event button helps 

• Increase emergency response time

• Log specific incidents

Facilitate Drivers communication

with Dispatch

•     Communication from dispatch to driver.

 

•     Communication from driver to Dispatch.

•     This can also be used as a public address system for driver to communicate to passengers.

•     In case of a Robbery or attack on the driver or passengers dispatch can speak through intercom system to warn violator that the police are on their way.

SAVE MONEY

AVOID INSURANCE FRAUD

The evidence is overwhelming:

 

Commercial vehicles are accused of being at fault at a much higher rate than private car drivers when there is a road incident. Commercial vehicles can protect themselves and save time & costs with the concrete evidence our vehicles video system provides.

Conclusion

Facts

•Reduction in emissions

•Safer and more intelligent driving

•Operational efficiency

•Recognise need for sustained training

•Behaviour Change

Assumptions

•Lower vehicle servicing costs

•Longer vehicle-life expectancy

•Improved overall driving standards

•Improved vehicle security

•Reduction in risk of accidents / insurance claims

Intelligent Fleet Management Through Advanced Fleet Telemetrics

A key component to a successful risk management program for any organization, including motorcoach companies,is loss prevention, or in the motor coach company context, accident avoidance.It starts with driver monitoring, scheduled training that is strongly bolstered by accurate Telematic. Driver & Vehicle Management data provided by the SSD8 and scheduling procedures, better advance trip/route planning, accident/claims reviews with involved drivers, a proactive driver incentive program and comprehensive maintenance procedures.

DID YOU KNOW?

20% of drivers are responsible for 80% of the costs related to bad driving habits some accidents are preventable when dangerous driving can be monitored and corrected

Hard Braking, Hard turning, excessive acceleration, not slowing down for speed bumps.

All of these factors lead to increased maintenance, fuel consumption and shorte vehicle life. Users generally experience up to a 10% improvement in fuel consumption just by introducing the safety coaching program and reducing aggressive driving, separate from other facts like idling

Exceeding posted speed limits or speed limits set by the company.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration identified SPEED as the number one factor in all accidents. The SSD8 monitors speed in real-time and provides immediate notification when the vehicle exceeds set speed limits.

Driver Management

The SSD5 & SSD8 automatically tracks, compiles and rates drivers based on idle time, overspeed, hard braking, turning, stopping and acceleration. Our system rates drivers based on these critical performance factors. Each factor and the frequency of the incidents are listed (the driver with the least incidents is rated #1 and the others in descending order).

 

 

This information can be utilized in correcting bad driver behavior and rewarding good driver practices. In the event of theft or hijacking the vehicle the control center can remotely shut off the vehicles fuel, electric power and lock the doors so they cannot be opened

•Idle Time

 

•When a vehicle is left idling, it can consume one gallon of fuel each hour.

•The American Trucking Associations states that one hour of idling per day for one year results in the

 equivalent of 64,000 miles in engine wear.

•A large majority of truck idling occurs when no delivery or service activity is occurring

(truck stops, driver breaks, traffic, sitting at the dock, etc.).

•Drivers and yard workers idle engines for many reasons, most unchallenged by management.

•Restarting your engine doesn’t burn fuel then leaving it idling. In fact, idling for just 10 seconds

wastes more fuel than restarting the engine.

•In the event of a hijacking our system can remotely shutdown vehicle power, fuel

and dissable doors from being opened.

 

Mobile Video Systems Fatigue Driving System incorporates both Facial Recognition Technology for monitoring Fatigue Driving and Advanced Driver Assist System monitoring Lane Departure Vehicle Proximity

Prevalence of Drowsy Driving Crashes

 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every year about 100,000 police-reported crashes involve drowsy driving. These crashes result in more than 1,550 fatalities and 71,000 injuries. The real number may be much higher, however, as it is difficult to determine whether a driver was drowsy at the time of a crash.

 

A study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety estimated that 328,000 drowsy driving crashes occur annually. That's more than three times the police-reported number. The same study found that 109,000 of those drowsy driving crashes resulted in an injury and about 6,400 were fatal. The researchers suggest the prevalence of drowsy driving fatalities is more than 350% greater than reported.

 

Beyond the human toll is the economic one. NHTSA estimates fatigue-related crashes resulting in injury or death cost society $109 billion annually, not including property damage.

Interventions for Drowsy Driving

 

Drowsy driving affects everyone, but especially those under age 25, who make up an estimated 50% or more of drowsy driving crashes.

 

That means interventions focusing on this age group – males especially – can help reduce drowsy driving among those vulnerable.

 

• Crash avoidance technologies: New and existing safety technologies, such as drowsiness alert and lane departure warnings, can detect common drowsy driving patterns and warn drivers to stay in their lane or take a break
