Using Data to Drive Proactive Risk Management

Our telematics solution provides a comprehensive and continuous view of driver and vehicle performance, alerting operators to systems issues or driver actions that may impact on public safety or operational efficiency.

Keeping costs down and passenger satisfaction high

Passenger comfort and public safety are always a top priority for operators, but poor vehicle handling can also result in fuel inefficiencies and avoidable wear and tear – issues that can ultimately lead to soaring operating costs.

Synectics Genius offers a data-driven solution to help operators avoid this issue. This easily deployable Telematics technology automatically gathers data from vehicle systems, such as our T1600 DVR, ensuring that any instances of excessive speed, unusual vehicle movement, acceleration, and braking are securely captured and logged.

Paired with GPS data and time-coded, this information is analyzed and presented to operators, either via a web portal or as downloadable reports. Cab-mounted LED indicators also give instant feedback on performance, enabling drivers to focus on the most fuel-efficient and safest way of driving.

The data collected gives operators the information they require to manage and contain running costs, reduce carbon footprints, improve road safety, decrease accidents, and improve passenger comfort and safety. And, when overlaid with video footage from on-board cameras, operators also have a powerful evidence resource – for example, to protect drivers against claims of negligent or dangerous driving.

Detecting risk, avoiding problems

The Genius Telematics Journey Data Management System has also been designed to support broader risk management objectives – for example, ensuring that on-vehicle CCTV solutions are functioning properly at all times.

As well as checking that cameras are fully operational when the vehicle is first started up, the Genius Health Check monitors for any sign of fault or monitoring drop-off, providing peace of mind that – should an incident occur – operators will have the video evidence they need to investigate.

In fact, Genius can be integrated with, and configured to monitor, any system within the vehicle, from door control systems to the engine itself. This information can even be transmitted in real time via WiFi, to ensure any maintenance or servicing required can be carried out rapidly before issues have a chance to escalate. In addition to optimizing vehicle performance, this helps operators avoid breakdowns that impact on service delivery and customer satisfaction.
