(IoT) Internet of things is a vast environment of physical objects, device, or sensors connected with the internet. Any digital device, objects or people that have an ability to transfer data over a network medium without the need of a human to computer interaction, that can be remotely controlled and monitor.
Fleet management is an industrial technique to organize and improve the efficiency and productivity of resources and reduce the cost control over vehicles. Thus, In Fleet Management System Internet of things is considered as an ecosystem of multiple technologies used in fleets like commodity sensors, real-time activity, wireless networks, control systems, embedded systems, and machine learning.
One of the major advantages of IoT being used in fleet management is the capability to automate various functionality of the vehicle. The device in the vehicles is interconnected with IoT systems both integrating parallel to each other so that clients can easily understand and create a daily working flow to manage there logistics process and overall trip planning. IoT helps logistics company to remote or track fleet at any time any place. Not only that automated process helps the driver to live check the condition of the vehicle, receives weather warning, and automatic rerouting in an emergency.
The various sensors in vehicles are connected with IoT system gives accurate information which helps fleet management companies to get useful information about vehicle running speed, vehicle idling status, fuel consumption, and driver behavior. Better analysis features play an important role in improving performance and taking accurate decision related to processes and equipment.
Those who have early adopted IoT in their fleet management process are enjoying the distinctive advantage of this technology and are way ahead from there competitors. IoT reduces the overall vehicle maintenance cost by improving the performance and the productivity of the fleet. Mainly the data received from using IoT helps fleet management companies to make quick decisions and also make instant improvements in there working pattern. Thus, one can say that in the upcoming years the Internet of Things will be the lifeline of the fleet management industry.
