Driver safety is to fleet management as Tiger Woods is to golf. In today's world, we know you've got the data you need (and if you don't know what to look for, this is a good place to start). All those numbers look pretty on paper, but how do they interact with each other?
Register for our co-hosted forum, "Strengthening Driver Safety with Big Data" Tuesday, March 19, 10:15 AM - 11:15 AM EST.
To help you enforce a culture that revolves around safety and responsibility, Donlen's Eli Rossiter and Geotab's Amir Sayegh have developed simple, actionable tips to digest and sift through the numbers.

Getting The Most Out Of Your ELD Data: Halliburton’s Story
(Sponsored by MiX Telematics)
Time: 12:00 - 1:00 PM EST
Date: Wednesday, March 27, 2019
Thanks to the ELD Mandate, virtually every U.S. trucking fleet now has the means to track myriad levels of data, ranging from driver behavior to driver hours of service to vehicle location. Yet most fleets are using only a portion of that data – hours of service, to ensure compliance with FMCSA rules.
In this session, oilfield services leader Halliburton will describe how its fleet operations team is leveraging data collected from its ELDs to impact not only compliance but also safety and efficiency – ensuring a positive ROI on their ELD investment.

Motus released its 2019 Cost of Vehicle Ownership Trend Report, which reveals how new vehicle prices, residual values and depreciation directly impact the costs of owning and operating vehicles.
The report found that depreciation accounted for 32.9 percent of the total cost to own and operate a vehicle over the past 12 months.
“This is a slight year-over-year decrease and establishes a three-year trend of gradual decreases in the rate of depreciation, representing an eight percent improvement since 2016,” said Ken Robinson, market research analyst for Motus.

Rural roads account for 70 percent of the nation's byways and the location for 54 percent of all fatalities, according to the Federal Highway Administration. Without access to a power supply, they are more likely than other roads to lack signals and active traffic signage.
To improve driver safety, Sara Ahmed and Samer Dessouky, professors in the UTSA College of Engineering, created a low-cost, self-powered intersection detection and warning system to alert rural motorists about potential dangers. The next-generation stop sign uses a multi-pixel passive infrared sensor that detects a vehicle as it approaches an intersection. Once the vehicle is within the sensing range, a signal beacon triggers the stop sign's flashing system.
