USA: Navman Wireless has introduced the Driver Scorecards, a new driver behavior feature under its OnlineAVL2 fleet tracking system in the US. The new system has four reports and two new dashboard key performance indicators (KPI) that identify and locate the trouble spots, and reach a specific driver directly from the system’s dynamic dashboard.
OnlineAVL2 enables fleet managers to divide the drivers by region, business unit, service type or any other category of their choice, and then generate any Driver Scorecard report or driver-based dashboard KPI by driver group to analyze the information and improve the behavior. The device can also be used to get info based on the type of vehicle and type of usage.
OnlineAVL2’s new Driver Scorecards measure behaviors such as speeding, idling, harsh braking, high RPMs or other integrated user-defined driving habits, utilizing metrics gathered from Navman Wireless GPS tracking units installed in a given fleet. If sensors that detect seatbelt use, emergency brake deployment or other driver activities are connected to the system’s GPS tracking units, the Driver Scorecards can incorporate that information as well. The resulting data is then available for at-a-glance examination with:
- Scorecard Summary, Detailed Scorecard Trip and Progressive Scorecard Reports that instantly identify drivers with below-average performance, show the impact of their behavior on fuel consumption, and permit drilldown to trip details when needed.
- Individual Driver Report Cards – including personal scores as well as comparison of drivers against fleet averages – that can be shared with the driver and used to modify unsatisfactory behaviors.
- Configurable Driver Score/Driver Average Score dashboard KPIs – including the ability to choose the drivers and time period represented as well as drill down for details – to allow real-time monitoring of problem drivers and intervention for urgent problems like speeding and excessive idling.
