Starting next year, CarrierWeb plans to develop a graphical user interface for MDT that gives drivers visibility of how their performance measures up against peer groups.
FuelOpps is an application designed to provide feedback to drivers regarding their fuel efficient driving techniques based on the type of equipment they use.
The application automatically transmits driver performance information from fleets’ existing mobile computing systems into its own database on a daily basis.
The SmartDrive Fuel app shows drivers a score that is a measure of how their fuel-saving behaviors compare to other drivers and to the target mpg for their vehicle.
Omnitracs added MPG performance information on the its Mobile Computing Platform 110 (MCP110) and 200 (MCP200) user interface earlier this year.
PeopleNet will soon begin development work on a new in-cab driver scorecard. This new feature will be available for its fleet mobility platforms to give drivers real-time visibility to any violations of their companies’ standards for speed, RPMs, idling, sudden deceleration and acceleration events.
The uniqueness of the PedalCoach system is that it doesn’t give people data to act upon, says Jeff Baer, founder and chief executive officer of LinkeDrive. Instead, PedalCoach uses a “human centric” approach to saving fuel with instant feedback that helps drivers train themselves to accelerate more gently and preserve momentum.
Zonar recently developed ZFuel, an online application that analyzes and visualizes complex data to help fleet operators and drivers improve fuel efficiency. A fuel efficiency score shows drivers how they performed under the circumstances.
