From Aaron Huff, Commercial Carrier Journal:
Mobile fleet management systems continue to expand the reservoir of driver performance and risk data. As the volume of data rises, new applications are controlling the flow of intelligence to fleet managers and drivers to immediately act on.
Cameras are contributing to the expansion of data on driving behaviors, and they may soon be standard equipment on vehicles. The SuperTruck concepts from leading manufacturers incorporate as many as 12 cameras for a 360-degree views from the cockpit.
Technology can go beyond using data science to predict which drivers are riskiest. The next step is to determine the best corrective action using prescriptive analytics, explains Sid Nair, senior director, transportation practice, at Teletrac Navman.
