Powered by Verilocation, Renault Trucks Vantelligence is a modular system suitable for Renault Master Euro-6 vans can monitor LCV driver behaviour in order to improve safety, fuel efficiency and performance, track vehicles in real-time for improved fleet efficiency, customer service and will monitor environmental performance for eco reporting. In addition, it can integrate with existing on-board scales and camera systems.
Commenting on the launch, Grahame Neagus, head of LCV for Renault Trucks UK and Ireland says: “Using our truck heritage, and our ethos that the LCV is a small truck and not a large van, we are harnessing the knowledge gained from our HGV business and applying it to our LCV range.
“Vans, like trucks, are profit centres and with some LCVs notching up to 40, 50 or even 60,000 miles per year, fleets could literally save thousands of pounds by monitoring them. For example, by utilising the Vantelligence data you can typically expect a gain in fuel efficiency of up to 9% and as well as promoting better driving through league tables on driver performance. It promotes safer driving too.”
The system is available in two modules. Vantelligence Control offers vehicle tracking and mapping. Vantelligence Optimum Control provides vehicle and driver performance.
Neagus adds: “As well as providing information on the LCV, the reports can integrate with the whole asset, including any cranes or fridges, reporting back on the vehicle as a whole, giving operators instant access to the information and providing data to better harness the overall performance of the fleet.”
