Zonar updates HD-GPS reporting program

Posted on March 14, 2012

Zonar announced the availability of a new patent-pending technology that adds fuel as a fifth dimension to the firm's HD-GPS reporting.

Utilized by private and public fleets, Zonar's vehicle telematics platforms have always utilized four-dimensional — latitude, longitude, time and odometer — GPS reporting. This methodology offers users the highest value at a very competitive cost because it ensures data is captured and transmitted only when it needs to be, not just based upon an established time cycle. Now, with the addition of fuel as the fifth dimension, Zonar's telematics platforms will not only determine sample rates based on geographical data, but also fuel consumption.

Employing Zonar's patent-pending technology, fleets will now be able to easily identify, with tremendous detail, the routes and lanes over which their vehicles are most and least fuel efficient, according to the company. The GPS sampling density increases when fuel consumption increases or "spikes" and relaxes when fuel consumption decreases or is relatively static.
