SMARTSURV WIRELESS – TAKING LIVE DATA TO NEW HEIGHTS WITH CANBUS CONNECTIVITY

Smartsurv Wireless, manufacturers of complete fleet management solutions, now have the technology to connect their fleet management system to a vehicle’s CANbus. Modern vehicles have various electronic control units (ECU) such as the engine control unit, transmission, airbags, antilock braking and many more. These systems communicate using the Controller Area Network bus (CANbus), much like a modern computer network.

Smartsurv Wireless have developed advanced technology to connect into the CANbus system to make use of the vast amount of data available to improve vehicle fleet performance. This allows accurate live data coming directly from the engine management system to be communicated, giving the ability to indentify pending or actual fault codes even before the vehicle has returned to base. By monitoring driver behaviour, gear usage, acceleration, harsh braking, fuel usage, CO2 emissions and vehicle fault codes, the Smartsurv Wireless fleet management solution is also able to reduce overall costs of running your vehicle fleet and also improve driver safety. Monitoring driver behaviour and the associated re-education invariably has a beneficial impact on fuel efficiency which is of paramount importance with current increasing fuel prices. In addition, poor driving behaviour could be putting vehicles, third parties and employees, all at risk. Fuel theft can also be a problem with some fleets, so electronic monitoring of the fuel volume before and after a journey can help to deter unauthorised losses.

Using the data provided by the CANbus system, a true analysis of the vehicle’s efficiency as a whole can be established which can then enable the most efficient and strategic vehicle deployment.
