In Vehicle Monitoring Systems (IVMS)
GPS Tracking Devices & Software
In Vehicle Monitoring Systems (IVMS) is a system whereby from a central place of management, vehicle usage, driver ID and driver behaviours can be monitored for compliance. Depending on the industry, required implementation and specifications may differ.
Our GPS tracking devices and Telematics Guru Tracking Software is feature-rich, flexible and can be configured to meet many common IVMS requirements.
COMMON KEY FEATURES FOR IVMS
- High quality GPS/GNSS receivers to determine position, speed and heading
- Accelerometers to detect accidents, rollovers and harsh driving events
- Driver ID via multiple methods such as Dallas iButton, RFID cards and more
- Digital Inputs for monitoring the status of seatbelts, 4WD etc or connecting duress buttons
- 2G or 4G Cat-M1 modems to send IVMS data in real time for live monitoring
- The G120 can be fitted with an Iridium Edge module for out of cellular coverage reporting capability
- Digital outputs to sound buzzers for driver feedback.
GPS TRACKING DEVICES FOR IVMS
common in vehicle monitoring system requirements
Real Time Location & Easy Installation
Our IVMS devices use high quality GPS receivers with low noise amplifiers (LNAs) to boost the signal.
No fiddly external antennas – simply install in a convenient location in the vehicle and receive instant location updates and history.
Our devices support Multiple Driver ID Options including iButton, RFID cards, and Wiegand Readers. In many cases the current cards in use on a worksite can also be configured with our devices.
Smart firmware features like the ability to "buzz on start" until a valid ID is scanned or immobilise the vehicle without a valid ID ensures that drivers tag on.
The 3-Axis accelerometer used in our devices enables accelerometer-based monitoring and alerts such as: accident, harsh acceleration, harsh braking, and harsh cornering. Real-time feedback can also be provided to drivers via a buzzer.
Real-time notifications can be configured to be sent via email, SMS, or app push notifications so key personnel are immediately notified if there is an incident.
- All devices track and report speed using their GPS modules and comprehensive speeding reports by driver are available for download.
- “Speed by road” is also available using posted speed limits to determine speeding events.
- In-vehicle speeding alerts (buzzing) with different speed limits based on Geofences is also possible.
- Geofences can be downloaded to the device so the device has knowledge of which speed it should buzz at, depending on its location.
PANIC/DURESS AND IN-vehicle EVENT MONITORING
The digital inputs on our IVMS devices allow for a customisable range of in-vehicle monitoring.
- Connect a panic button/switch to a digital input - Wireless or in-vehicle buttons can be sourced and fitted.
- Digital inputs can also be connected to other on/off vehicle features such as seatbelts, doors, 4WD or handbrakes.
- Reports, alerts and in-vehicle feedback can be generated for various events such as vehicle movement without seatbelt, 4WD, door open / close and more.
Driver Fatigue Monitoring
Real-time in-vehicle alerts can be set up for when a driver has been driving for a configurable period of time as warning that they must pull over and take a break.
Reports on the length of trip time are readily available and can be scheduled to monitor driver’s adherence to these guidelines.
Out-of-Coverage Location Reports
Monitor vehicles and driver behaviour even when they move out of GPS coverage with our Hybrid Cellular / Satellite GPS Tracker the G120.
- The G120 can be fitted with an Iridium Edge Module
- When the G120 is within coverage it uses the cellular modem, which is much more affordable than Iridium airtime
- When the device can no longer join the cellular network, it switches to the Iridium Network
- The use of concurrent GPS/GNSS, Cellular and Iridium ensures assets are tracked anywhere in the world, even when the asset roams in and out of GPS coverage
