Wheels, Inc. is integrating technology from Toyota's vehicle data communication module into its fleet management online user portals to enable its customer companies to unlock a range of information from their Toyota vehicles.
This collaboration between Wheels and Toyota Connected North America is designed to provide fleet managers insights on driving behaviors, allowing them to better position themselves to improve the safety of their fleets, according to Wheels. Wheels' FleetView and DriverView online portals will be integrating Toyota's data communication module technology.
This will include a range of telemetry (GPS, speed, odometer) and driving behavior data (harsh cornering, braking and acceleration) as well as key vehicle diagnostics such as tire pressure, according to the fleet management company. The information will be presented clearly and concisely in conjunction with existing fleet data, helping clients make strategic decisions on the management of their fleet.
The collaboration between the two companies is based partly on the desire to ensure they will be ready to support autonomous vehicles as soon as it becomes a viable options for fleet.
