GEOTAB, MoMo, RoadBuddy…
GEOTAB SA just loves innovation, and nowhere will you find a more creative thinking bunch of people than on the regular Mobile Monday (MoMo) events held from time-to-time, and the recent Johannesburg event again lived up to expectations.
The elevator pitch of GEOTAB was done by our Senior Software Engineer, Romeo Mackay, and was pitched around the GEOTAB Software Development Kit (SDK), that allows for the development of software, solutions and apps around GEOTAB offering, some examples include SARS Logbook, Arrival Notifications etc, whatever your imagination can think of relating to location and behaviour of vehicles on the road that is equipped with a GEOTAB Advanced Telematics (Tracking) device.
We also found the RoadBuddy pitch aimed at road safety very interesting, and in fact the project is supported by IBM, and is a really cool solution aimed at reducing the accident rates across the world, you can download the presentation on Roadbuddy here, and you can also head over to the RoadBuddy site to read more about these innovators.
SAPICS 37th Annual Conference
Annually, professionals with a passion for supply chain management meet at the SAPICS Conference to discuss topics and explore resources relevant to the supply chain profession and benefit from valuable networking opportunities.
This year GEOTAB will also be there to showcase how the GEOTAB Fleet Monitoring Platform can increase productivity and profitability in the supply chain, come visit us at Stand A41.
Steve Swart, our Business Development Manager for KZN today presented what I considered a very interesting presentation indeed.
The presentation was on tyre management solution from one of our Value Added Partners that integrate with the GEOTAB Fleet Monitoring service, a solution that measures tyre pressures as well as tyre temperatures at different points during a journey.
The specific presentation results were based on a Horse and Trailer, across several days, and it was very interesting to see both the pressure increasing by more than 20% during different parts of the day, as well as the temperature, in this specific case the temperature and pressures peaked late in the afternoon at about 16:00 and from there started declining again until about 21:00.
What was even more interesting was to see the different pressures and temperatures on the different wheels, raising the question if this was due to truck load weight distribution or perhaps different tyre manufacturers, which we will check with next test.
This solution we can see will add significant value to the trucking and heavy equipment industry, we will update you over the next few weeks as we complete our different tests on the integration into the GEOTAB Checkmate system for this specific customer.
