SpeedGauge, a GPS data provider for commercial vehicles, has reached agreement with Xata Corp. and TeleTrac to provide its speed tracking and analysis information.
The deal with Xata will add SpeedGauge to the XataNet application suite, available in late spring to new and existing customers. Teletrac will add the services as part of its Fleet Director 7 solution.
SpeedGauge web-based applications analyze GPS data streams in real time to help fleet managers identify high-risk driving behavior and lower fleet operating costs resulting from excessive speeding.
Currently, excessive speed is a major factor in 30% of fatal truck accidents, resulting in nearly 1,600 deaths and $6 billion in lost productivity in the U.S. each year, Teletrac said. Speed is also a leading indicator of other types of poor driver behavior and a leading contributor to poor fuel economy and high vehicle maintenance costs.
SpeedGauge ASP is a patented driver safety analytics application built on the sophisticated analysis of commercial vehicle GPS data streams. It provides predictive decision-support information to commercial fleets to help fleet managers identify high-risk driving behavior, control speed and monitor, rank and rate drivers on all types of roads, nationwide.
