IVECO is continuing to lead the way for digital services that focus on both the driver and improved methods for safer driving with the new Safe Driving features for the IVECO S-Way and current DAILY models.
Safe Driving Combined with KPIs
Continuing their pioneering service, IVECO has extended its IVECO ON portfolio of digital services with the unique Safe Driving suite of features designed specifically for safer driving. The on-board system measures a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and generates regular reports to help drivers to acquire a safe driving style and fleet managers to foster a safe driving culture in their fleet. Safe Driving addresses the issue of human error, the major contributor to road accidents, by enhancing the driver’s risk awareness. This will reduce the risk of accidents, with the benefit of fewer incidences of injuries and damages to the transported goods or the vehicle. The Safe Driving features, available on IVECO S-WAY and current DAILY models with a Connectivity Box, are easily accessed through the IVECO ON portal.
Fabrizio Conicella, in his role of Digital lead said of this development: “At IVECO we are constantly looking at new ways of supporting our customers and enhancing the drivers’ life on the road. The Safe Driving features and service address the all-important concern for their safety when they are out there, carrying out their transport missions. In the same way that the Driving Style Evaluation tool helps them to drive more efficiently, the Safe Driving reports will give them useful advice that will enable them to enhance their safe driving behaviour.”
Advice to Help Tailor Fleet Level Trends
The standard Safe Driving Reports provide an overview of the measured KPIs for the fleet, organised in three categories: Dynamics includes indicators on harsh steering or acceleration manoeuvres, stability control and handbrake use while driving; Collision Risk looks at behaviours that indicate a possible risk of accident such as harsh braking or keeping unsafe distance from the vehicle ahead; and Compliance with regulations such as speed and driving hours limits, and vehicle maximum legal weight. The fleet manager can analyse the trends at fleet level and identify the areas where drivers can improve their driving style to enhance their safety on the road.
The IVECO S-Way also offers a Professional Safe Driving Report and Advising service which drills down into the individual driver’s behaviour. The Professional Safe Driving Report analyses the individual driver’s performance on each KPI and provides an action plan with suggestions for improvement. With the report, the driver and fleet manager are also able to track the improvements achieved following the advice provided by the Safe Driving service.
