Children safety is a top priority for parents. Unfortunately, only a few can afford to drive children to school or to pick them up after classes. Therefore, school buses are becoming a more preferable, yet not the safest type of commuting for a number of regions. With safety issues requiring more and more attention from city municipalities in various regions, our partners are coming up with a cure. To ensure child safety today, Wialon-based school bus tracking systems are coming to the fore.
The value of public transport for any state can hardly be overestimated. Constant route network monitoring, traffic flow tracking and routes update to assure high-level transportation service – these are priority measures for public transportation improvement. The sphere of public transportation demands precise control of transport performance and its specific parameters which are often not provided by the functionality of an average fleet management system. What’s more, a range of parameters to control is defined by local regulations and requirements.
Several years ago our partner from Kazakhstan – KazIntersoft – came up with public transport management and reporting system, developed on the basis of Wialon SDK.
Machine utilization (i.e. the effectiveness of machinery usage) is an important concept because if vehicles and machinery are not being used correctly and efficiently, operating costs are higher than they should be. Situations regularly occur when drivers leave machinery engines running without the machinery actually working (idling). Machinery is often operated without consideration of its efficient usage (excessive time taken to warm up engine, needless stop/starting, etc.) Also, machinery is repeatedly left standing at one workplace with little or no performance though it could be more effectively used somewhere else.
Keeping your tires properly inflated and aligned saves fuel by reducing the amount of drag your engine must overcome. To detect under-inflated tires, you can use a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) in your vehicle which informs a driver of any deviations in tire pressure. Yet the information on tire pressure is also vital for dispatchers, fleet owners, security department managers, etc.
To solve the issue, our partner KazInterSoft released an application Tire Pressure which allows for remote tire pressure control.
Aimed at developing an effective tool for fuel management in the agricultural and construction sector, our partner – Ares Sun Company – created a fuel control module available in Wialon system. It allows comparing the volume of fuel dispensed and filled for different units and groups.
There’s no doubt that Wialon platform has largely become world-famous for its vehicle tracking solutions. But more and more often our system finds its application in the area of stationary asset tracking and workforce management. Let me just mention TatASU company – Gurtam partner located in Tatarstan – offering comprehensive Wialon-based fleet and workforce management solution with a single dispatching control center. The center specialists manage 8500 motor vehicles and more than 1000 employees, equipped with mobile control units. The control units send operative data to 700 dispatch stations and monitoring specialists positions. The project scale makes it one of the major in the Russian Federation.
There are many advantages to using a telematics system – from maximizing the utilization of your fleet to controlling and reducing maintenance costs to comply with government regulations. The latter is especially important in the US and Canada, where Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has been working on finalizing the Electronic Logging Devices regulation for quite some time. Current expectation is that the final rule will be finalized before the end of 2015 and the fleets will have two years to comply and completely switch from paper-based logs to electronic logs.
Gurtam joins the promising project to facilitate the entry of M2M and IoT solutions into the market. Immense customer experience allows Gurtam team to lead the way by supporting the partnership program aimed at providing tried and tested components for the developers of end-to-end solutions.
Constantly building its own, Gurtam also granted support to PodsystemM2M community, where every person interested is given opportunity to choose the best combination of products and take advantage of the advice from experienced professionals in the area of M2M and IoT. The program covers fleet management and logistics sector, where Wialon product is used in full force and effect, allowing Gurtam to share advanced experience.
Our partners never fail to amaze us with participation in sporting events. Today we are going to cast light on Neomatica’s success in Russian Ultralight Aviation Sports Championship. This summer “Pervushino” airfield, situated 40 km from Ufa, united air-sports amateurs and professionals eager to watch the plains, ultralight trikes and gyroplanes taking-off and sailing through the sky.
