SpeedGauge Introduces GPS Accuracy Verification Technique and Service
SAN FRANCISCO, March 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — SpeedGauge, a leading provider of business intelligence and location-based analytics for the trucking and insurance industry, today announced a new GPS data accuracy and quality verification technique. This new technology platform, called SpeedGaugeAssurance, assists telematics service providers to unobtrusively monitor the accuracy of infield devices and to benchmark the performance of devices in real-world operating conditions.
GPS data accuracy, often affected by faulty installation, impacts the quality of vehicle operation reports and creates costly post-sale customer service issues for service providers. SpeedGaugeAssurance uses proprietary analytic techniques to monitor and assess the directional and positional accuracy of real-world data. In addition, it does not require known fixed locations to measure and benchmark accuracy.
“This technology benefits telematics service providers by reducing post-installation customer service issues and by allowing industry leaders to assure their fleet customers that their infield devices are performing optimal,” said Chris Kantarjiev, Ph.D., chief technology officer of SpeedGauge. “This technology can be used to rate service offerings and provide real-world verification of superior infield performance.”
SpeedGaugeAssurance is a new offering that grows out of the company’s technical partnership with leading telematics service providers to deliver driver behavior monitoring and coaching tools to fleets. This platform marries safety, risk, GPS analysis and coaching tools to enable smarter and safer driving.
SpeedGauge, a privately held company founded in 2002 and located in San Francisco, provides patented BI and analytics to the commercial transportation industry. SpeedGauge’s software solution is available through its network of GPS fleet tracking partners and 3rd party providers around the globe.
Deployed across thousands of fleets, SpeedGauge is currently available in North America, Europe and Australasia, with plans to expand to other regions. For further information on the company, its technology and solutions, visit www.speedgauge.net.
