Driver Behavior Monitoring

Driver Behavior Monitoring

Driver behavior monitoring is an important safety and cost-saving measure. Our devices allow comprehensive driver behavior monitoring solutions. With multiple flexible options in order to collect and review data gathered.

Driver behavior monitoring allows:

  • Cost-saving as abuse/misuse of assets can be detected and prevented
  • Compliance with law and regulation (see IVMS)
  • Speeding violations to be recorded for safety, and fines allocated to the driver
  • Hours of work/driving logged for billing, payment, and proof of service.

Driver IDDriver ID

In order to effectively monitor the behavior of drivers, we must first know who is driving!

Our devices support a range of driver ID options. Devices can be configured to sound a buzzer or immobilize an asset until a valid driver ID tag is scanned – meaning drivers can’t ‘forget’ to log on.

Driver Identification is an important safety tool, as it allows for people to be accounted for. It can also be used to ensure disciplinary action can be taken should a driver violate any laws or safety regulations.

Location TrackingLocation Tracking

Know where your drivers are at all times – even when out of mobile coverage.  Get reports on important events such as accidents, rollovers, and overspeed events. This is fundamental to ensuring the safety of workers.

Geofence alerts allow keep-out and no-go zones to be established. The time drivers spend at locations can be tracked to optimize workflow, reducing dead time, and preventing time theft. Get an alert if your employees are where they shouldn’t be during work hours!

Speed Monitoring

Monitor speeding events via reports and alerts. Local speed by road available with TG-PRO, to detect when drivers are violating posted speed limits. Speed reports can be used to discipline drivers, assign speeding fines to the offending driver rather, and prove compliance to authorities.

Devices can be installed to provide in-cab alerts and feedback to drivers when over the speed limit.

Speed Monitoring

Harsh Event Monitoring

Our devices are fitted with 3-Axis Accelerometers to provide harsh event monitoring. Receive instant notifications if a driver is involved in an accident so immediate, life-saving action can be taken.

Harsh acceleration, braking and cornering alerts (and in-cab feedback) prevent vehicle abuse and promote safe driving.

Engine Hours and IdlingEngine Hours and Idling

Report on trip times, moving time, and idle time. These metrics can be used to:

  • Monitor the odometer and run hours of an asset for preventative maintenance
  • Bill customers by time or distance
  • Detect when vehicles are left running unnecessarily, wasting fuel


In Vehicle Alerts

Devices can be configured to provide feedback to the driver via an externally wired buzzer or internal buzzer on some devices for a hassle-free installation.

Notify drivers when: 

  • They have been driving too long (driver fatigue)
  • They are over a set speed
  • On harsh driving events
  • A seatbelt is undone, or a secondary piece of equipment (e.g. a pump) is left running along with the engine.

Speed limits can be based upon geofences – so feedback can be provided when a driver is on-site to keep their speed below the site’s maximum speed.
