Vehicle Diagnostics

FMS solutions have the ability to extract vehicle status information from the Engine Control Module (ECM). For most passenger cars and light-duty trucks this interface is called OBDII. The ECM can be connected to the FMS in-vehicle tracking device and deliver important information over the satellite network to help manage the fleet more cost effectively.

When events happen, such as jack rabbit starts or hard braking or diagnostic trouble codes indicate there is a problem, the FMS GPS tracking device sends the information to Fleet Director Global. An alert is generated and the information is sent to a designated recipient, such as the fleet manager, helping to prevent costly damage to the vehicle. This visibility allows for improved vehicle maintenance, identifying vehicle abuse, and a deeper understanding of the behavior and status of your vehicles - all of which will extend the life of the vehicle and lower the total cost of ownership.
