Ryder System Inc (NYSE: R) has launched a mobile application of its onboard telematics system RydeSmart 3.0 for iPhone and iPad devices.
With this application, RydeSmart customers can track their vehicles and access real-time data on their fleets from their mobile devices at any location, any time of day. In seconds, customers can access detailed maps and check movement and status of their fleets. The RydeSmart application for the iPhone and iPad is free and can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store or www.rydesmart.com.
The RydeSmart 3.0 mobile application allows the user to pinpoint exactly where a vehicle or group of vehicles is located and their direction and speed. This app also provides detailed map views as well as key vehicle data.
A compact hardware and software unit that is installed in the vehicle and connects to its existing computer and diagnostics systems, RydeSmart 3.0 communicates wirelessly via a dedicated and secure connection to a Web-based application that can be accessed by fleet, safety, and driver managers.
RydeSmart 3.0 lets users improve fleet performance by continuously monitoring vehicles’ location, mileage, speed, and direction, as well as idle time, fuel consumption, average speed, miles logged, and hard-braking events. It offers a robust mapping capability that includes a “bird’s eye view” of vehicles on the road and the ability to obtain a street-level perspective. Additionally, it provides a history playback that can show a vehicle’s 48-hour history; information on traffic conditions in real-time; and analytics reporting on vehicle and driver performance metrics.
