How is Fleet Telematics Used for Driver Safety?
Telematics systems gather fleet data including vehicle location using GPS, diagnostics and driver behavior. Fleet telematics technology can help correct unsafe driving in real-time and receive tools to coach and provide performance feedback to drivers. This allows businesses to catch patterns of unsafe driving behavior before they result in a serious accident.
Telematics technology identifies risky behaviors such as sudden acceleration, braking, and cornering. Data collected from telematics devices can be extremely useful in promoting driver safety. For example, braking patterns are the leading indicator of distracted driving. Increased breaking could indicate the driver is following other vehicles too closely, while frequent sudden braking could be an indicator of driver texting.
Fleet telematics technology can significantly improve driver safety and help fleet managers reduce insurance costs, provide legal proof that a company made efforts to promote driver and vehicle safety, and heighten a company’s safety reputation.
