Consider the case of a sleepy driver who begins to nod off and his truck swerves, if only briefly, into the oncoming lane. As the incident occurs, an alert sounds at the trucking company’s monitoring station.
The driver is contacted and instructed to get off the road for the night. Numerex works with customers to develop monitoring systems like these used by transportation companies across the United States and Canada, to dramatically improve safety and enhance productivity.
A large city in the Northeast gets significant, regular snowfall which can paralyze a community and make travel difficult and dangerous for its citizens. Paramount to keeping routes open and providing seamless transportation in and around the city are its fleet of snowplows and salt trucks which maintain the city streets.
Numerex M2M devices and solutions can track vehicle locations and even use driving behavior monitoring systems to enhance operations and improve efficiencies for vehicle fleets of local, city, and state governments wishing to track a fleet of vehicles or other moving machinery.
Numerex supplies vehicle location data coupled with geographic information system (GIS) technology to track the snowplows and salt trucks. During inclement weather, the city uses this tracking information to provide website updates on specific city streets that have been plowed or salted, guiding citizens in making smarter decisions on when and where to travel safely.
