The Galileo system guarantees optimum fleet management. This constellation of satellites, developed in Europe, offers an unprecedented geopositioning system. Nearly 30 satellites provide a positioning service boasting a margin of error of less than one meter. How will this system help fleet management? Read on to find out.
The future of mobility
Different technologies are mapping out the present and future of fleet management. With vehicle automation looming up on the horizon, it is becoming ever more necessary to work with accurate geopositioning systems. This is where Galileo comes into its own.
Connectivity will be crucial in a future where automation is the norm, but until it arrives there are various roadside aid systems already in operation. These cut down driving risks and the possibility of getting lost.
Improved accuracy is the number one boon of this system. Although America’s GPS is the most widely used, the phasing in of Galileo will improve both precision and availability. Both aspects are already proving to be a great help both to drivers and companies and will only become even more helpful in the future, providing continuous vehicle tracking information with unprecedented performance features.
All this will have a very positive knock-on effect on costs. Route planning and control of fuel consumption, for example, will both be much simpler. The development of future artificial-intelligence-integrating applications will help to optimize routes, rest stops and refueling stops. This will slash journey costs.
Galileo has even more to offer fleet management. It will help, for example, to ascertain the height and in general the size of transport vehicles, allowing routes to be chosen to suit each one. The future of mobility will undoubtedly involve a change of game rules, something we are now seeing the first signs of and which is bound to become increasingly evident in the near future.
A cutting-edge system
Galileo is already a bonus for fleet management purposes. The improved precision and availability are bound to revolutionize fleet management of all types. GMV is now working busily away to bring all this about. Why not get in touch?
