IVMS IN VEHICLE MONITORING SYSTEMS
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 details 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 and, importantly, exception reports. These reports are based on your parameters and site parameters.
For instance, how many speed violations and at what level are tolerates, what are the parameters for harsh driving detection, what is considered over-revving and excessive idling, to name a few. The process also includes driver profiling, an aspect that ultimately saves live as drivers are aware that their driving habits are being watched.
