Online geofencing: VDO DriveTime
Detailed requirements ensure greater transparency
Your advantages at a glance
- More control over route and vehicle movements
- Define precise routes and areas for vehicles
- Prepare reports with all deviations from the planned route
- Departure and arrival times and all route changes are documented accurately
- Stay in control of additional costs such as unscheduled tolls
The geofencing function allows you to define areas and routes for a vehicle. To do this, you simply choose a suitable shape from a selection of circles, rectangles, and other geometric shapes in order to define different key areas. All deviations from planned routes are then documented in the report. You can also use geofencing in real time: The DLD Wide Range remote download device transmits location data to VDO DriveTime via GSM/GPRS and you receive a notification as soon as a vehicle leaves or reaches the marked area. This means you always have full control over when vehicles leave the premises, and you can inform clients in good time before the load reaches its destination.
With the VDO Drive Time online software, you can analyse vehicle locations, routes taken, travel times in order to optimise routes and improve the efficiency of your fleet.
VDO DriveTime offers numerous analysis functions for efficient vehicle management.
