According to a report published by Facts & Factors, the global Internet of Things (IoT) fleet management industry is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 21.6 percent from 2019 to 2026. With the increasing number of fleet vehicles globally, there is an increased responsibility for productivity, driver safety, operations, vehicle maintenance, and performance.
Managing a seamless fleet operation doesn’t have to be difficult. IoT plays a large role in the ever-changing fleet industry to provide smart, safety solutions for both fleet companies and drivers.
IoT is one of the driving powers behind the digitisation of fleet management. There are many systems that assist vehicles in monitoring safety, maintenance, and productivity – advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and video telematics being two of them.
ADAS monitor several features of driving and contributes to tracking traffic and road conditions, observing driver intentions, and interfering with algorithms to detect any unsafe or unexpected situations on the road. With the help of IoT, ADAS provide superior data for fleet managers. In fact, ADAS is especially useful when combined with video telematics.
Video telematics is a system that connects and tracks vehicles by using GPS technology. This crucial information is stored, analysed, and then sent to fleet managers. AI technology can track eye movement to ensure unsafe driving behaviours, such as nodding off or getting distracted by surroundings are captured and communicated with both the driver and fleet manager.
Video telematic solutions have been found to lower driver distraction by 80 percent, reduce speeding by 65 percent, and increase seatbelt use by 70 percent; overall, resulting in safer driving conditions for the driver, fleet companies, and others on the road.
IoT technology is crucial in advancing the fleet industry; some of the most important benefits of IoT in fleet solutions are as follows:
