GeoSpace releases Fleet Commander

New back-office cloud platform for company’s suite of Geowiz ELD products provides frequent data updates

GeoSpace Labs recently released its new Fleet Commander back-office cloud platform. 

The company said the platform provides j1939 and j1708 data updates every 15 seconds to back-end office users, completely visualized and geospatially encoded.

“We dusted off our computer science, mathematics, and engineering degrees to tackle providing the fastest real-time ELD updates in the industry,” said Dr. David Lady, GeoSpace CEO and lead engineer, “We have spent the last year perfecting the mobile communications platform and decided it was time to transition to updating the cloud platform to match the amazing data streams we have built.”

However, 15 seconds is not the goal of the Geowiz ELD platform, Lady said. “Our next release in about three weeks will bring 1-second data streams,” he added.

This will mean a fleet manager can make decisions in “perfect real time” using knowledge of every aspect of a nationally distributed fleet of vehicles and driver hours-of-service legal requirements, including more than 100 onboard computer parameters (this is more real-time decision making data provided faster than most air traffic controllers have available). Further, the historical data streams are stored in a cloud data array for deep analytics going back six months, the company maintained.

The new Fleet Commander platform also provides real-time weather data fully integrated into the fleet geospatial views, so multiple data points are available when dispatching. This includes the operating status of power units and associated trailers and chassis, any reported suspect codes from the power unit engine’s onboard computer, the driver’s exact working status, like how many hours driven and how many hours legally remaining to drive, the fuel status of the vehicle, weather conditions for the entire trip, and customer geospatial coordinates.

The Geowiz ELD was introduced in 2014 and has grown to more than 30,000 users across its core and specialized systems, the company said. It can be purchased at geowiz.myshopify.com.
