Fuso has launched its comprehensive Fuso Connect telematics system, which is now standard on Shogun models and includes a free 12-month subscription.
The locally installed system allows for a fleet administrator or operator to access important information such as vehicle location, driver behaviour, engine status and much more around the clock.
The information can be accessed on a desktop as well as mobile devices using iOS or Android platforms.
Vehicle performance can be closely monitored with fuel efficiency reports, while a driver scorecard can also be generated to encourage high driving performance. Over-speeding, over-revving, harsh braking and excessive idle time can also be monitored and reported in real time.
Customers can track and trace trucks in real time and set geo-fences to send an alert when a vehicle enters or exits a specified area. Fleet administrators can also be alerted to vehicle impacts and rollovers. Vehicle maintenance status is also visible.
Fuso Truck and Bus Australia vice president, Alex Müller, says the Fuso Connect system was introduced to enhance customer service.
“We are very excited to bring our customers an advanced telematics system for the popular heavy-duty Shogun model,” he said.
“Fuso Connect will empower our customers with real-time insights, increased operational efficiency and enhanced safety measures – and we know it will be a popular introduction.”
