The latest telematics device from Teletrac Navman, the VT102, will be available from 24 January 2022.
This device has been type-approved by Transport Certification Australia (TCA) and provides levels 1, 2 and 3 assurance for use in Road Infrastructure Management (RIM), Telematics Monitoring Application (TMA) and Intelligent Access Programs (IAP), allowing for greater access and information of road networks throughout Australia.
The new device adds to Teletrac Navman’s suite of telematics solutions available to the industry, allowing operators to choose the right solution for their needs and circumstances, especially for transport businesses looking to improve access and increase payload.
“The new type-approved telematics device from Teletrac Navman supports the growing diversity of productivity and safety schemes being introduced through the National Telematics Framework,” said TCA Executive General Manager, Stuart Ballingall.
“The V102 telematics device satisfies the highest level of performance requirements demanded by road managers and regulators. Having been type-approved at Level 3 assurance, the device can be used for regulatory schemes where the need for strong accuracy, reliability and security outcomes are demanded by stakeholders.”
When paired with Teletrac Navman’s TN360 software, the VT102 offers transport customers an AI-powered fleet management solution, helping to ensure drivers and vehicles are operating safer and more efficiently through high-definition GPS tracking, real-time vehicle updates and customisable data and analytics.
“Our customers are realising the productivity benefits of being part of the RIM, TMA and IAP access programs,” said Teletrac Navman Chief Product Officer, Andrew Rossington.
“Teletrac Navman has more than 15 years’ experience in the field, and we are dedicated to the ongoing development of technology which helps operators meet the required standards to enrol in these programs and reap the significant benefits they offer.”
Telematics has been the cornerstone of breaking down performance barriers within the transport industry and type approved telematics devices, coupled with enrolment in regulatory access programs, help operators like SRH Milk Haulage save time and costs.
“We can cart 3,400 litres extra per load,” said Blair Harvey, Compliance Manager at SRH Milk Haulage. “This means we’re now getting 12 loads done in 11 loads. That might not sound like much, but it makes a huge difference and now we’re up to nearly 41,500 litres per load.”
Adam Hornby, Managing Director, Hornby Transport, also commented on the impact telematics has made for Hornby Transport: “On top of ensuring vehicles are correctly maintained and loaded, and that drivers aren’t driving too long, we’re able to run our fleet more efficiently. This goes hand in hand with productivity, as we’re able to react quickly to changing customer requirements, and put our drivers and vehicles on the safest, most efficient route.”
