Hybrid System

The Hybrid System is a Fleet Telematics unit suited to sophisticated power users of Fleet Management solutions. It incorporates a hybrid communication platform of GSM/GPRS with Iridium satellite. The device boasts a wide array of functionalities including distribution management, vehicle maintenance, and utilization, comprehensive accident reconstruction, communication with a back-office platform (Routing & Scheduling, WMS, ERP) and POD systems, etc.

It forms part of the MHub Fleet Telematics range designed to address many of the operational challenges prevalent among the commercial fleets. These include basic activity monitoring, reduction of operating costs and enhancing the management of the Supply Chain.

The MHub has been deployed around the globe across a variety of industries such as logistics, utilities, insurance, telecoms, public transport and emergency vehicles.

Satellite Hybrid Communication

A hybrid satellite and GSM communication platform provides data communication redundancy in remote areas ensuring “Always Available” communication. Using Utrack’s Least Cost Routing engine, the operator can maintain cost efficiency by limiting the satellite communications instances to high priority events in areas with no GSM coverage.

Automatic Vehicle Location [AVL]

Using its onboard Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver the MHub provides accurate location information. Additional information includes trip data, driver identification, input status, output control, speeding, and odometer.

Driver Management

Active monitoring of abusive driver behavior. Monitored parameters include excessive idle, harsh braking, excessive acceleration, speeding, over-revving and freewheeling. The analyzed information provides the operator with a valuable tool to minimize fuel and maintenance costs while maximizing safety.

Zone Management

Monitoring entry and exit from user-defined geographical areas (referred to as geofences). The downloaded Geofences can be categorized (i.e. customers, fuel stations, depots, etc.) and linked to user-defined actions. An example would be the unlocking of the cargo doors on entering a customer location.

Distribution Management

Scheduled delivery plans are downloaded to the MHub. The MHub monitors the execution of the delivery plan and reports actual vs. planned. This feature has been designed to facilitate integration with 3rd party routing and optimization platforms, providing the operators with real-time delivery execution analysis. The data can be further utilized to dynamically resolve delivery problems and to further optimize future delivery schedules.

Accident Reconstruction

The MHub logs relevant vehicle data encompassing location, speed, direction and harsh braking on a second-by-second basis. On detecting an impact, the device automatically transmits the accident log to a centralized platform, providing the operator with an online accident notification and a reconstruction log of the events leading to the accident.

Power Modes

Using the latest technologies, the MHub has the ability to intelligently switch between various power modes subject to its detected ignition status. The device can reduce its power consumption to levels well below industry standards, allowing a vehicle to be utilized for weeks, while not excessively draining the vehicle battery.
