Benefits of Telematics & AI Cameras in Fleet Management

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly getting integrated into multiple, everyday technological applications. From websites to apps showing accurate recommendations for users to gaming predictions, AI has been transforming user experience in multiple areas.

Fleet management has benefitted from AI cameras and telematics in recent years. The need for higher driver safety, without impacting efficiency or cost, has resulted in many businesses implementing smart fleet management systems.

While AI cameras monitor critical events that occur on the road, telematics collects vital information on driving behaviors, such as speed, acceleration, and harsh braking. Fleets can greatly benefit from AI-based apps to enhance safety, ease, efficiency, and accuracy.

Here are some of the many benefits of AI cameras and telematics in fleet management:

Increased Fleet Safety through AI Cameras

The latest, innovative AI dual-camera systems do more than just record video. Devices such as Positioning Universal’s PosiVision Edge TM AI Fleet Camera Solution harness the power of AI to identify and record only the events critical to the driver. These features drastically improve efficiency and safety. For instance, fleet managers can identify bad driving practices such as idling, harsh accelerations, and more to save on fuel. Likewise, and most importantly, fleet managers can also identify safety issues and address them before an accident occurs.

To sum up, fleet managers now have the capability to use real-time vehicle status and location data, video feeds, and telemetry to ensure their vehicles are operating efficiently and safely on the road.

Increased Fuel Efficiency

Telematics —the combination of informatics and telecommunications— provides insights that can positively impact fuel usage. The FT7500 Gateway Solution —a telematics device with Electronic Logging Device (ELD) support— gives fleet managers all the data they need regarding vehicle usage, vehicle location, engine maintenance, driver behavior, fuel economy, idle time, and distances driven. Likewise, the ELD support allows for a streamlined process of recording driving time and hours of service (HOS), relieving drivers of an otherwise tedious and time-consuming task that distracts from getting to the destination.

Telematics can track all these aspects, allowing fleet managers to ensure the fuel and time is being used efficiently and not being wasted.

AI Cameras Provide Real-Time Fleet Analytics

AI cameras allow for fleet managers to have their eyes on the road, even when thousands of miles away. Anytime a critical event occurs —from collision risks to stop light violations— video of the event is uploaded to the cloud for fleet managers to see. With the AI Camera’s ability to accurately identify objects in the road, these critical events are easy to track, and bring only the important insights and video footage to the fleet manager’s eyes. This makes the daunting task of monitoring driver behavior a much simpler task, and one that allows for a more optimized fleet safety program.

Telematics Ensure Efficient Scheduling Maintenance

The data telematics collect and store can further play a major role in efficient scheduling and maintenance. Whether you want accurate analytics to enhance the efficiency of your fleet or want to reduce fuel consumption to save money, telematics and AI cameras are an ideal solution. They allow you to make smart decisions about vehicle management and maintenance, and offer other crucial data to enhance your operations, reduce fuel cost, and enhance the overall efficiency and safety of the fleet. Positioning Universal’s paired FT7500 and Posivision Edge TM AI Fleet Camera Solution harness the power of telematics and edge AI in one complete, easy-to-install system.

No matter for what purpose you use these innovative solutions, they are bound to positively impact your overall fleet management.
