SEATTLE, Wash.-Zonar, provider of electronic fleet inspection, tracking and operations systems, announced the availability of a new patent-pending technology that adds fuel as a fifth dimension to the firm's HD-GPS reporting.
Employing Zonar's patent-pending technology, fleets will now be able to easily identify, with tremendous detail, the routes and lanes over which their vehicles are most and least fuel efficient. The GPS sampling density increases when fuel consumption increases or "spikes" and relaxes when fuel consumption decreases or is relatively static.
In addition to five-dimensional data sampling, Zonar's telematics platforms transmit engine fault codes and verified electronic vehicle inspection data in real-time. This information alerts maintenance personnel to potential service events and provides the ability to remotely diagnose vehicles in the case of a malfunction.
