Key factors to proper data-based fleet maintenance

For many fleet managers, data may be intimidating as it’s a double-edged sword. In most cases, fleet managers don’t properly collect or store data. They end up using only a tiny fraction of it, consequently questioning if they should be doing it at all. The rest of the data gathered either remains “dark” (untagged, unorganized and thus useless) or becomes ROT (Redundant, Obsolete and Trivial).

Therefore,

With a bird’s eye view of your fleet and its status, you will be able to properly allocate budget and organize your workforce and routine maintenance, making sure both time and money are well spent. Not to be forgotten, a healthy vehicle will increase its longevity, further improving your return on investment. Let’s break that down:

What data you should be collecting for optimal fleet maintenance?

>> Fleet Management System (Telematics) data:

  • Harsh braking and rapid acceleration:

The visual shows the acceleration and deceleration of vehicles over a specific timeframe, giving insight into possible rapid acceleration and harsh braking.

Harsh braking and its counterpart, rapid acceleration, are some of the best ways to notice aggressive driving. Not only does such driving increase the risk of brand and reputation damage, but it also increases the risk of actual damage and collisions, as well as potential legal costs.

By monitoring harsh braking and rapid acceleration, you can save on fuel and reduce possible brake damage. Furthermore, you can increase the longevity of your tires and reduce the overall wear and tear of your vehicles. In the end, this will lead to healthier driving habits which will increase your overall vehicle health while reducing fleet maintenance costs.

>> Fuel consumption

003

The fuel consumption chart enables you to cross reference the time a vehicle spent active, the distance it travelled, and the amount of fuel it spent during that time, including the average fuel consumption per mile.

Monitoring fuel consumption might be a no-brainer, but the benefits of measuring this key performance indicator go way beyond what meets the eye.

While the obvious reason to monitor is to be able to tell when you need to order more fuel, thus being more efficient with each individual vehicle, a more low-key advantage is being able to notice discrepancies in consumption.

A sudden surge in use, for example, could be a symptom of a malfunctioning vehicle, fuel theft or something else altogether. Knowing what normal use looks like will help you better determine what “abnormal” use looks like and will enable you to react on time before potential costs start adding up.

>> Driver scoring (ECO)

driver-scoring

Safety data and general vehicle information are combined to create an overall driver score, allowing you to better understand which drivers could be further trained to reduce maintenance cost.

This is where data pooling, in contrast to siloing, really begins to shine. Combining all the various data bits on the driver’s behavior (harsh braking, rapid acceleration, hours of service, dash camera data, keeping in lane, driving within speed limit, driving too close to the vehicle in front), you can rate, or score the driver.

As a general rule of thumb, the better the driver, the lower the cost of fuel and the easier the fleet maintenance management.

This data can help you understand which drivers need more training in order to reduce their cost towards the fleet.

>> Real-time video AI dash camera data

Easily accessible real-time dash camera feed gives you a first-hand view of your vehicles and drivers at work.

Maintaining a healthy fleet is more than just organizing maintenance schedules and making sure all hardware components are fixed before they cause serious headaches. It’s also about avoiding collisions and potential driving fines, as well as protecting brand reputation.

Dash camera data, in real-time, can be of enormous help. You can leverage this to monitor your drivers for distractions, as well as irresponsible and dangerous driving (texting, taking their eyes off the road, driving under influence, reckless driving, or falling asleep at the wheel).

>> ELD data

  • Driver hours of service
Artboard-9

Driver hours of service will tell you for how long a vehicle was active, how much distance it crossed, as well as the average distance per hour.

This is another key performance indicator that frequently gets overlooked. Driver hours of service are enforced by law in most countries around the world and as such - are often only used to avoid fines or legal issues. However, it can and it should be used for a lot more than just navigating through the legalities.

It can be used in preventative maintenance - to prevent damages and excess maintenance costs before they occur. By tracking every driver’s hours of service within your fleet management system, you can assess potential collision risk (due to fatigue, for example) as well as potential wear and tear to the vehicle.

>> Radar-based collision prevention system data

Radar-based collision prevention system data lists incidents by severity, allowing you to spot reckless drivers easier.

Data generated by our collision prevention system plays a pivotal part when it comes to getting the full picture of the health of your fleet.

Not only will this tool directly reduce necessary maintenance tasks by preventing avoidable collisions in real time, it will also help train the drivers. It can do that by alarming drivers if they’re swerving between lanes, if they’re speeding over the limit, or if they’re risking their own (and other traffic participants’) safety by driving too close to the vehicle in front, as well as a myriad of other things which all may add up to higher maintenance costs.

The optimal way to collect and access your data: one unified platform.
