Logistics And Transport Monitor

All have become accustomed to the use of software systems to automate accounting, optimization of the warehouse, accounting for vehicles, etc. However, progress is not in place, and modern information technology open new opportunities for fleet management and organization of transport logistics company, from creating the optimal plan for delivery of goods using electronic cards to monitor vehicles. Thus the cost of such solutions is that their implementation can not afford to not only large enterprises but also small businesses, and return on investment in logistics systems and monitoring only a few months. The monitoring system of transportation is a hardware-software complex, which includes several components: electronic maps, flight controllers for automobiles, sensors and actuators (used to monitor the status of the vehicle or equipment installed on it (the sensor switch, emergency button, etc.) The system works by monitoring the transport: The park the vehicle on-board controller (on the car can also be installed additional sensors: the sensor plug, the opening / closing doors, emergency button, etc.), which defines location, speed, direction of movement of the car with the help of global positioning satellite system GPS, as well as analyzes the state of the sensors. Onboard controller transmits the data at specified intervals via GSM (for GPRS-channel) to the control center that allows the operator to monitor objects in real time. Dispatch Center is a computer (PC, laptop) with installed software and connected to Internet over a dedicated channel. Manager sees the location of vehicles on an electronic map, and analyze information, if necessary, quickly react to the situation. The effect of the introduction of systems obvious: Reduce delivery time of products, increase the efficiency of the use of vehicles by reducing the unsustainable path, and downtime, reducing costs by delivering a 10-20% fuel savings; The increase in labor productivity increase discipline drivers; Prevention of misuse of vehicles, reducing the risk of losses from theft and transportation of goods.
