How do connected vehicles work?
So how does this marvel of technology actually work, you ask? It’s quite simple, yet mind-blowingly effective. The secret sauce lies in the Internet of Things (IoT) and the ingenious way Apptricity utilizes it.
Let’s break it down. The Apptricity solution consists of three crucial components. First up, we have the I-Connect Edge Devices, armed with nifty RFID tags and/or BLE Beacons. These devices sit on the pinnacle of IoT, connecting your vehicle and on-board equipment to the cloud. They work their magic by scanning for tagged assets in real-time. So no matter where your vehicle goes, you’ll have an up-to-the-minute view of its contents and location. Talk about having eyes in the back of your head!
Of course, it doesn’t stop there. We also have the Apptricity Asset and Inventory Management software application, the mastermind behind the scenes. It’s your trusty companion that manages equipment and inventory whereabouts, ensuring everything is accounted for. Assets and inventory items are tracked separately, so you’ll always know what’s on the vehicle and what’s chilling at the off-site location. And if something goes missing or too much inventory mysteriously disappears, fear not! The app will send an alert to the driver or dispatcher, exposing the culprit.
Last but not least, we have the Apptricity Field Services Mobile application, the technician’s ultimate weapon of choice. With this app, your technicians or drivers will have a real-time view of their vehicle and the precious equipment inside. Say goodbye to outdated work order lists or relying on dispatchers to keep you in the loop. Apptricity’s application gives technicians instant updates on available inventory and completed work orders, all at the tip of their fingers. Plus, it throws in nifty mapping functionality for turn-by-turn directions, ensuring they take the most efficient routes. Efficiency, thy name is Apptricity!
What is an example of a connected vehicle?
Now, you might be wondering, what exactly does a connected vehicle look like in action? Visualize this: a service vehicle equipped with GPS tracking and RFID technology. With GPS tracking, you’ll have real-time updates on the vehicle’s location, allowing you to keep a watchful eye on your fleet’s movements. But it doesn’t stop there. RFID technology takes it to a whole new level.
Imagine each piece of equipment and inventory on board being tagged with RFID chips. These little tags communicate with the vehicle’s IoT devices, providing instant visibility into what’s on board and where it’s located. You pretty much have a digital inventory assistant that keeps tabs on every item, ensuring nothing goes astray.
With this level of connectivity and control, you’ll have the power to optimize routes, prevent losses, and make informed decisions that drive efficiency. This vehicle can be a truck, a van, an ambulance, a police cruiser, a smart car, an electric automotive machine…it doesn’t matter. If it’s got an enclosed space, then it is ready for tracking! The possibilities are endless, and the benefits are boundless. It’s time to embrace the wonders of a connected vehicle and unlock a world of supply chain excellence.
