IVMS stands for In-Vehicle Monitoring System. It is a term used to describe mine spec tracking which is differentiated from standard tracking by its focus on safety and compliance. Digicore’s IVMS is an advanced tracking system with GPS functionality. It provides data on who is driving your vehicles, when and where they drive them and, importantly, how they drive them.
How does IVMS Work?
IVMS works by collecting data such as seatbelt usage and combining it with information picked up from the vehicle such as RPM, and then integrating it with GPS data like speed and position.
Our IVMS device can detect harsh driving style, which is then integrated with all of the other information, including driver ID through a swipe card, and sent back to our computer servers.
What happens next?
From here a number of things become available: live tracking, replays of trips, historical data on all elements monitored and, importantly, exception reports. These reports are based on your parameters and the specific requirements you have on your site.
For instance, your site might have different speed zones throughout different areas of the site that need to be monitored and adhered to. This can be maintained with geo-zones stored on the unit with their own speed zones that provide in-cab alerts for those zones if the speed limit is exceeded. The units also monitor driver styles, monitoring for harsh events like harsh acceleration, harsh braking, harsh cornering and impacts that are tell tale signs of vehicle abuse. All of this data is then collated into easy to read reports that bubble the important data to the top so managers can easily see what incidents need their attention.
