Transcode Fleet Mangement
- CONNECTIVITY PROTOCOLS
Transcode’s smart transportation solution leverages an intelligent IoT Gateway based on the Intel® AtomTM processor E3825 the ARK-2121V from Advantech to create a robust and reliable data gateway platform that effectively transmits real-time data to the back-office system. When equipped with this gateway, each vehicle can efficiently provide data of its location, status, and other pertinent information. Data that is transmitted through the gateway can then be used by business owners to effectively track and manage their entire fleet.
Through this gateway, business owners will also be able to monitor employee behavior by creating a structured system that efficiently oversees drivers’ daily workflow. The gateway serves as a real-time communication portal that monitors drivers’ shift schedules, performance, and location assignments. The gateway also serves as a means of communication between the drivers and the back-office system during road emergencies and other traffic-related concerns.

- OPERATIONAL IMPACT
Impact #1 [Efficiency Improvement - Operation]
Transformed vehicle fleet management for optimized business operations
Transcode’s intelligent transportation solution that runs on Intel architecture-based IoT gateway provide businesses in the transportation and logistics industries operational excellence, improved service delivery and productivity, maximized revenue opportunities.As the solution’s communication gateway provides real-time data feeding to the cloud and statistical analysis, the back- office system can easily utilize data analytics to monitor vehicle location and availability status, as well as deliver efficient service scheduling. Public transport drivers, in particular, can also utilize the solution to send their preferred locations without having to endure the horrendous city traffic that causes them to waste time on finding shift spots. The solution can also help businesses involved in public transportation monitor passenger demand patterns, as well as gather real- time revenue performance and total customer experience.
Impact #2 [Efficiency Improvement - Productivity]
Using data analytics from the information collected by the gateway also enables the back-office system to monitor drivers’ behavior to ensure they comply with daily workflow and arrive on location assignments on time. This is particularly helpful for those managing a fleet of public transport vehicles, as this eliminates the problem of drivers who wander around and select passengers wherever and whenever they want. The solution allows business owners to create a structured system that oversees drivers’ behavior as well as helps them achieve better productivity at work.
- QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
This demand has translated to a high fleet utilization rate of up to 90%, which has allowed taxi drivers to generate revenue of almost twice1 to what conventional taxi services earn.
- USE CASES
Asset Health Management (AHM)Asset Health Management refers to the process of analyzing the health of an asset as determined by operational requirements. The health of an asset in itself relates to the asset's utility, its need to be replaced, and its need for maintenance. It can be broken down into three key components: 1) Monitoring: Tracking the current operating status of the asset. 2) Diagnostic Analysis: Comparing real-time data to historical data in order to detect anomalies. 3) Prognostic Analysis: Identifying and prioritizing specific actions to maximize the remaining useful life of the asset based on analysis of real-time and historical data.
