Vnomics Corp, providers of advanced analytics solutions that enable fleets to improve driver and vehicle performance in real-time, announced February 29 at the Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition its Vnomics True Fuel fuel optimization solution. The patented, standalone system significantly improves fuel economy through real-time driver coaching and precise, comprehensive fuel use analytics for fleet managers.
“True Fuel is the result of customer feedback and our commitment to the transportation industry to provide a driver coaching and fuel analytics tool in a format that can be used by any fleet, regardless of its telematics platform,” said Alan Farnsworth, chief executive officer at Vnomics. “We’ve taken our current fuel optimization solution, which has already proven to provide a 3%-10% fleet wide fuel savings on several thousand vehicles, and packaged it as a stand-alone product that any fleet can quickly deploy and begin saving fuel immediately.”
Easy-to-install, regardless of a fleet’s telematics or onboard technology, Vnomics True Fuel precisely monitors each vehicle’s actual fuel usage in real-time and compares it to the maximum achievable fuel economy for that vehicle under its current operating conditions. To accurately identify the actual and potential fuel usage of each truck and each driver, the system takes into account the impact of vehicle make, model and age, terrain and load size.
“Vnomics knows drivers don’t need more visual distractions in the cab,” said Farnsworth. “With audio alerts for improper shifting, speeding, and idling that signal only when the driver is not optimizing fuel consumption, True Fuel empowers drivers to take immediate action to improve fuel efficiency in real-time.”
With True Fuel, drivers are also provided with fair and balanced scorecards detailing the fuel loss factors they can control, including shifting efficiency, speeding and idle time. Fleet managers can use the solution’s user-friendly web portal to access comprehensive fuel use analytics and summary dashboards and gain insights instantly into fuel usage and causes of wasted fuel for a fleet or for specific vehicles and drivers. True Fuel provides a solid basis for driver-accepted incentive programs recognizing and rewarding fuel-efficient driver performance.
