Speaking Abstracts:
Telematics Technology and Sensor Fusion – Enhancing Vehicle and Operator Safety
Telematics technology is evolving at a rapid rate due to the influx of available data to the telematics system. The uses have gone far beyond GPS tracking and vehicle maintenance and has now moved into the area of driver monitoring and behavior with the goal of improving operator safety and efficiency. With the advancement of sensor technology, telematics systems are able to record and deliver event data that is critical to fleet managers in assessing the habits and actions of their operators. From the recording and logging of harsh acceleration and braking, to near miss collision reporting, the ability for systems to fuse the data from multiple sensors to analyze a driving habits is facilitating the overall improvement of safety for fleets utilizing this technology.

This presentation will look at the types of sensors being utilized to increase the safety of heavy equipment and vehicles and how the sensor data relates to driver improvement, efficiency and safety through the use of telematics systems.
