SEATTLE — Zonar Systems and Esri are offering an integrated system that delivers real-time fleet data layered with geographic map information.
Officials say the system helps companies determine capacity enhancements, improve fuel efficiency, optimize routes and share interactive transportation maps on the web.
More specifically, users can determine fuel efficiency rates of specific routes with elevation information, in addition to longitude, latitude, speed, odometer and fuel usage data.
Vehicle location and diagnostic data can be tracked on a map that contains company facility and asset locations, preferred fuel stops, maintenance and service locations, or customer delivery points. Vehicle locations can also be integrated with traffic, weather, work orders and company-maintained GIS data.
“Fuel efficiency is extremely important to our customers, and the Zonar and Esri integration provides additional data sets including elevation to the fuel capture data Zonar provides,” said Mike McQuade, chief technical officer at Zonar. “In addition, private and public fleets are improving customer service by sharing interactive location maps and expected arrival information to customers over the Internet and mobile devices.”
Wolfgang Hall, business development manager for tracking solutions at Esri, added that the ability to display and store Zonar’s detailed GPS location data inside GIS allows the company’s users to “leverage advanced spatial analysis.”
