MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Mobile communications maker PeopleNet Communications has released PerformX, a new vehicle diagnostics product that monitors vehicles’ engines.
Through a system of alarms and reports, fleet managers can view vehicle performance data at regular intervals, even while the truck is on the road, then use this data to make changes that increases fleet efficiency, PeopleNet explains.
PerformX, doesn’t require costly on-board computers or software, the company notes.
These reports, which measure odometer readings, idle time, fuel efficiency, excess speed, high RPM readings and more, allow managers to analyze the data between vehicles as well as for a single vehicle over time to improve vehicle performance.
PerformX also uses a system of alarms, which alert managers when a vehicle travels over a predetermined speed, makes sudden starts or stops and reaches a certain odometer reading.
PerformX uses the same wireless technology as its Intouch G2X Fleet Management system to send the alarms directly to a manager’s e-mail while the vehicle is on the road, according to PeopleNet.
