Transtech would like to extend an invitation for you to join us at the 23rd World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems for the unveiling of our latest compliance application that solves the problem of in-cabin heavy vehicle road-network navigation and route adherence.
Adhering to legislated heavy-vehicle routes is a major concern and issue facing the Australian transport industry. Road managers are concerned about the health of infrastructure, whilst transport operators are struggling to optimise routes while ensuring compliance against approved road networks; let alone the need to operate on efficient routes.
More and more heavy vehicle truck types, including the myriad of Performance Based Standards [PBS] vehicles, are coming onto the network. Add complex dangerous goods delivery routes, heavy mobile crane networks, urgent dispatch onto job sites; the challenge of adhering to routes will only get more difficult for operators.
Up until recently, knowing what heavy-vehicle routes are permitted for each vehicle type, has only been available via paper or online maps. Updates to the road network may take place without the driver being aware, meaning the information they have available to them is out of date. Trust is put on the driver to complete the route compliantly, yet issues may arise such as road closures, diversions from emergency services, and so on. Technology, like the iFace, which the drivers are using in their cabs today can be used to help them navigate on the correct road network.
Working closely with VicRoads and Transport Certification Australia, Transtech has invested in researching and developing an innovative driver application to provide route adherence.
Using regulatory geo-spacial data sets, the solution allows drivers to create routes that takes the heavy-vehicle road network into account. From HPFV & HML to the B-Double & Heavy mobile Crane networks, a driver can now plan and follow an appropriate route with turn by turn directions ensuring compliance against a Permit or Notice. Back office users will be able to create compliant routes and send them to their drivers to ensure compliance with Company created road networks within the legislated road network.
Transtech will be unveiling and demonstrating the solution at the 23rd ITS World Congress in Melbourne on October 10-14th. Register in advance for free attendance to the exhibition to see Transtech at Stand #520. Otherwise, if you’re registered as a delegate, come along to the presentation at the Auditorium at 11am on Wednesday 12th of October.
