Driving Style Evaluation for more economic driving

Valid data for Driving Style Evaluation: The TISPLUS telematicbox Truck transmits driver data such as braking, driving speed or accelerator pedal movements to the headquarters. This provides a good basis for the drivers to improve their own driving style and more economic driving in the entire fleet.

Different indicators show, if a driver is driving forsightful, safe and economical - for example coasting mode, cruise control, accelerator pedal movement, stops and driving at excessive speed.

The TISLOG telematicbox Truck collects data from the tachograph and the FMS / CAN bus and forwards it to the headquarters, where the data can be processed and displayed in detail via TISLOG office. Even raking lists of all drivers can be displayed. Thus the driving behavior of the driver becomes transparent within the fleet.

Driving style indicators finely tuned

For the Driving Style Evaluation in TISLOG office target ranges can be defined, prioritized, and adjust very finely:

The data are normalized by the TIS system to 100 kilometers and an average value determined. For the evaluation, a target range is stipulated and the indicators are recorded when exceeding or falling below the limiting values. The results are finally weighted and ranked accordingly. This allows to finely adjust the driving style evaluation.

Economical driving with Driving Style Evaluation

Still, with up to about 30 percent of the total costs the fuel costs are the biggest factor in the truck sector. Thanks to the technological developments of the last decades the fuel consumption has fallen significantly. Meanwhile, on test tracks already values below 30l/100 km are in foreseeable range. Nevertheless, there is still potential for savings that could be controlled mainly on the driving behavior. Thus, by a uniform driving or when driving with cruise control a lot less fuel is being consumed than at fluctuating speeds.

Driving style evaluation in TISLOG office therefore factors such as wear-free braking and uniform velocity also testify for economical driving habits of the driver. With the results of the driving style evaluation, for example, targeted driver training can be derived in order to improve the driving style - and to save fuel costs. TIS customers have also made very good experience with bonus systems. For example, half of the savings in diesel consumption was quarterly paid to the driver, providing motivation for the driver in addition to the driver hit list to change their driving behavior accordingly.
The driving style evaluation by TIS is manufacturer independent.
