With any reliable GPS fleet management system, driver behavior monitoring is essential for clients to be aware of their employees’ driving behaviour. When it comes to speeding in particular, Geotab’s GPS tracking software can compare posted speeds vs actual speeds to determine if drivers are speeding. Accidents can be quite costly by raising insurance rates and having to repair or replace damaged vehicles. This is why it is important for your business to ensure that all employees are obeying the rules of the road and adhering to company policies.
In order to provide our customers with the most complete data available to ensure they get accurate posted road speed data, Geotab uses an advanced algorithm that combines the best of both data sets from Naveteq maps and Open Street Maps. By using both sets of data, there is an elimination of the existing gaps in the individual sets, therefore resulting in the most precise posted road speed data. In addition, the unique algorithm uses driving context information. The GPS position of the vehicle before the point in question and what the vehicle does next are used to ensure that the correct road is used to find its posted speed. For example, this allows for a differentiation between highways and feeder roads that are near highways.
Driver safety is very important and with features such as Geotab’s speeding reports, you’ll be able to monitor the driver behavior of your employees. Driver behavior monitoring is a key feature offered by our monthly GPS fleet tracking services and can have a large impact on your business. Other
