Exploring Route Optimization aspects of Smart Fleet Data

Note: As a standard practice, I will include a plagarism detection link in all the articles on my blog site. You can use the online tool below to evaluate any article published on the web for plagarized content. All you have to do is to paste the url of the article there and it will go through every sentence in the article and flag any plagarism. I believe as a follower of “writer’s integrity” I should include this tool in all my articles:



I see most of the discussion around Smart Fleets pivoted around better management of transportation assets and associated labor.

While that is cetainly a significant aspect, another aspect I see is that data from connected transportation assets can help us realize our vision of practical dynamic vehicle route optimization tools.

A key obstacle/challenge in developing dynamic routes is the ever changing operating parameters, that may make optimal routes generated one week, suboptimal the next week.

This can also take care of capturing the “expert” knowledge from drivers, by capturing the same data through various sensors on the Smart trucks.

This simplified high level slide illustrates examples of data points that can be captured and how it can be seamlessly updated in a cloud based input database for Dynamic Vehicle Route Optimization.
