Inrix, a provider of traffic information and driver services, announced that GPS North America and Contigo Systems, which offer fleet management systems, are adopting Inrix Driver Analytics.

According to Inrix, its Driver Analytics product helps fleets reduce their fuel and liability costs by comparing driver behavior to the actual travel conditions encountered by their vehicles at specified dates, times and locations on the road network.

“It is crucial for fleets to gain immediate insight into driver performance based on actual driving conditions. This reduces fuel consumption and liability costs through early notification of unsafe driver behavior,” said Lindsay Ryerson, president and CEO, Contigo.

Through GPS North America, Contigo Systems and several other providers, Inrix says that Driver Analytics delivers insight for more than 400,000 fleet vehicles in North America. The features and benefits include:

  • Detect excessive driver speeds and behavior patterns
  • Monitor fuel consumption relative to traffic conditions
  • Alert dispatchers to traffic conditions and effects on ETA’s
  • Lower insurance premiums and infraction penalties

Through its web-based service API, Inrix Driver Analytics accepts GPS telematics data and returns information about the road the fleet vehicle was traveling on: posted speeds, road class, current traffic speed and abnormal congestion.
