Kindly shed some light on the Satellite Antenna IOX-SATIRDv2 solutions and Telemetry kit and how customers benefit from this turn-key solution.
IOX-SATIRDv2 allows GO devices to communicate over the IRIDIUM Network if the vehicle travels outside of cellular or network connection. With the IRIDIUM Satellite Modem, users can continue to track their fleet even when cellular connectivity is lost. This solution includes an emergency button add-on, which sends an “emergency” message through the satellite network to MyGeotab when triggered. This feature will send a top priority message, regardless of the state of the vehicle. When triggered, the device will start a beeping sequence that continues until the message is received.
Our Telemetry kit is a small computer installed in your vehicle that is able to report on nearly every detail — from speed and idling, to fuel use, low tire pressure, and more. This information can mean saving on maintenance costs by better monitoring vehicles or improving fuel efficiency by learning more about driving habits. A vast amount of data can be processed and analyzed with a telematics device and other connected hardware or sensors, such as:
- Position (GPS)
- Vehicle speed
- Trip distance/time
- Idling time
- Harsh braking and driving
- Seat belt use
- Fuel consumption
- Vehicle faults
- Battery voltage, and other engine data.
Geotab GO devices capture the industry’s broadest and richest streams of vehicle data giving fleet managers more information about their vehicles and drivers. More information means better visibility, more control and better business outcomes.
Digitalization of fleets ensures efficient and productive logistics operation, added, which sectors is the company primarily focusing to cater and the impact of digitalization in these potential sectors?
Métrica Móvil’s main focus is to cater to companies with fleets that have more than 1,000+ units and/or are considered global companies. We offer solutions to improve driver behavior, respond quickly to changing conditions, improve fleet productivity, efficiency, safety and more with valuable insights derived from data. Any sector, including food & beverage, oil & gas, manufacturing, courier & delivery and more, can benefit from the impact of fleet digitalization.
In a recent collaboration with Driver Technologies, how does this partnership benefit Métrica Móvil customers in the long run?
Driver Technologies partnered with Métrica Móvil to work on a comprehensive and advanced telematics solution. The American mobility technology company based on artificial intelligence announced the launch of Driver Enterprise Solution. Both companies seek to provide their customers with safety alerts and dash cam videos to fleets throughout Latin America through their mobile phones without having to purchase additional hardware. Thanks to this strategic partnership, fleets will be able to access driver videos easily. This results in a high-quality, easy-to-use telematics and management solution. In addition, the possibility of purchasing the Driver Cooler Mount support will be offered, which is designed to keep devices up to date, offering an optimal view of the road ahead.
