We are excited to share that Digital Fleet has added functionality to the platform to understand when a truck is exceeding the posted speed limit. When combined with live traffic data and location replay, this is a very powerful feature to help understand driving behaviors.
Here is a brief walkthrough of the new functionality:
Map Enhancement: Display of Current Speed with Clear Indication When Exceeding Posted Speed Limit
When you click on a truck, the upper left hand corner of the window will show the current speed.
If the truck’s speed is over 5 MPH above the posted speed limit, the speed will be displayed in red. We made the configuration 5 MPH to reduce noise on reports and visuals.This will help you focus on the real infractions without being distracted by a truck driving 1 mile over the posted limit. Here is what the top half will look like to indicate the truck is exceeding the posted speed limit.
Map Enhancement: Display of Posted Speed Limit
After clicking on a truck from the map, if you click on “More info” you can see the posted speed limit. In this example, the truck is moving 53 mph and the posted speed limit is 55 mph.
Map Replay Enhancement: Clear Indication of Exceeded Speed History
After clicking on a truck from the map, if you click “Replay” you will see the GPS history for the truck. This has been enhanced to show a red icon when the truck was exceeding the posted speed limit. Here is a small screenshot of what that looks like.
Hovering over a point in the replay will show the vehicle speed and posted speed limit. In this example, the vehicle speed (V) is 54.9 MPH and the posted speed limit (L) is 55 MPH.
Reporting: Driver Performance Report Includes Exceeded Speed
Exceeded speed events have been added to the Driver Performance report. You can retrieve a report by truck of all times the truck speed was greater than the posted speed limit, when the event happened, and the address where it happened.
Here is a sample of the output:
