GPS Police adds driver behaviour monitoring to fleet management services
ERM Advanced Telematics, a manufacturer of vehicle tracking and security devices, has announced that Canadian-based fleet management services provider, GPS Police, has expanded its offerings with the company’s eSafe driver behaviour monitoring.
GPS Police says it has been using ERM’s telematics solutions and devices to enable its base vehicle tracking service for the past three years and recently expanded its relationship with ERM, beginning with a driving behaviour monitoring and black box solution based on the ERM’s eSafe accessory.
eSafe contains predefined profiles for over 35 vehicle types from passenger cars to public transportation vehicles to heavy duty truck, ERM notes. It includes the definitions for 22 driving activities and maneuverer sets according to each vehicle type, including advanced combinations of accelerating, braking and turning in different driving situation, such as over speed bumps, on traffic circles, on off-road conditions and more. eSafe also contains black box capabilities for recreating the driving scenarios that led to accidents.
ERM notes eSafe can also differentiate between braking and acceleration patterns of a passenger vehicle driving on paved roads compared to a field service vehicle or light duty truck driving in off-road conditions.
Moreover, eSafe is fully integrated into GPS Police’s fleet management workflow processes and has been configured with definitions for graduated levels of severity for violations of the monitored driving behaviours. Alerts of all threshold violations are audibly and visually sent to drivers in real-time, GPS Police says, and are logged for follow up analysis, while alerts of severe instances of individual violations and notifications of accumulated instances of ongoing violations are sent to the customer’s fleet manager.
“We are currently evaluating additional solutions and accessories from ERM and we have strong expectations that our relationship with ERM will empower us to continue to create new revenue generating opportunities and expand our services,” said Sean Fournier, founder and chief operating officer at GPS Police.
Established in 2003, GPS Police is based in Calgary, Alta. Customers include those in the law enforcement sector as well as oil & gas and government agencies across North America.
