Tracking System

When it comes to shoring up margins, today’s businesses have to be savvier and sassier than ever before. Sustainable too. Amid glib talk on the prowess of analytics, many business owners and managers have underplayed the benefits of leveraging technology to enhance the performance of vehicles and drivers behind the wheel. Against this backdrop, heavy vehicle management and tracking systems have emerged as credible solutions to streamline fleet management, optimize logistics operations and ensure the safety and security of goods in transit. And help decarbonize the world on the move. 

Why is It so Crucial?

Imagine having the ability to effortlessly track and monitor the whereabouts, movement, and performance of vehicles in real time. Vehicle tracking systems, powered by advanced technology, make this a reality. By combining GPS (Global Positioning System) with cellular or satellite communication, these sophisticated solutions collect crucial data such as a vehicle's location, speed, direction, and more. With the global vehicle tracking system market projected to reach a staggering $50.5 billion by 2028, witnessing a steady growth rate of 13.2% from 2023 to 2028, the potential of this technology is immense.

Through the utilization of GPS and communication technologies, vehicle tracking systems gather vital data about a vehicle's movements, enabling real-time tracking and monitoring. From tracking a fleet of delivery trucks to monitoring personal vehicles, the possibilities are endless. It’s like having an extra set of eyes in the back of your head - you can keep track of where you’ve been and where you are going without having to look over your shoulder.
To cite an example, ABC Logistics deployed a comprehensive tracking system across their fleet, resulting in a 15% reduction in fuel consumption, a 20% decrease in maintenance costs, and a 30% increase in on-time deliveries. These improvements have boosted the company’s competitiveness in the market while reducing its environmental footprint.

The Growth Drivers & Trends 

The vehicle tracking system market is witnessing significant growth, primarily fueled by the escalating demand for efficient fleet management solutions in logistics and transportation companies. This surge in demand is propelled by an increasing focus on driver safety and compliance with regulatory standards, leading to the adoption of vehicle tracking systems. Additionally, the remarkable growth of e-commerce and last-mile delivery services has further amplified the need for these systems to ensure timely and precise deliveries. Moreover, the integration of advanced technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) with intelligent routing features is driving market expansion. The rising demand for theft prevention, vehicle recovery, and enhanced security measures is also contributing to the adoption of tracking systems. That apart, stringent government regulations governing fleet management and driver safety are creating a favourable market outlook.

In the context of heavy vehicle management, IoT enables real-time tracking and monitoring of vehicles and their components, such as engine performance, fuel consumption, tyre pressure, and cargo conditions. Then, there is Telematics which combines GPS technology with onboard diagnostics to collect and transmit data on vehicle performance and driver behavior. Plus, Augmented Reality (AR) can be utilized for maintenance and repair tasks. Technicians wearing AR-enabled devices can access digital overlays of vehicle components, schematics, and repair instructions, making maintenance tasks more efficient and accurate.

CSM’s Heavy Vehicle Movement Tracking System

Tracking System

CSM Tech has developed a seamless, IoT-based real-time tracking system to accurately monitor the movement of heavy vehicles. The system is underpinned by a device gateway configuration at loading and unloading points. A wireless, navigational device- Beacon is also configured with the gateway. A beacon is a small Bluetooth device that repeatedly transmits signals that other devices like your smartphone can see. Beacon broadcasts a radio signal that is a combination of letters and numbers approximately every 1/10th of a second. Beacons use low-energy Bluetooth technology to send signals to other smart devices nearby. To ensure foolproof tracking, the vehicle registration is done with the beacon. When tagged to the vehicle, the beacon issues alert notification at loading and unloading points. The alert makes it easy for the operator to validate and confirm the loading status. Later, when the same vehicle moves to the unloading point, another alert helps the operator in validation.

Tracking System

A Beacon for The Future

Think of a future where vehicles and their components are monitored in real-time, maintenance is as intuitive as a gesture, and loading and unloading points are seamlessly validated. It isn't just a system; it is a beacon that guides us toward unparalleled efficiency and accuracy. Heavy vehicle tracking systems are more than tools; they're torchbearers that illuminate the path to success. In our quest for a more innovative, more sustainable tomorrow, they are more than just assets. Now is the time to steer our businesses toward the roadmaps that will define the future.
