Sentinel, Transtech’s Electronic Work Diary (EWD), gives operators a fresh new look and a modern take into the complex world of fatigue compliance; helping both back-office staff and drivers to manage their obligations to Australia’s fatigue laws and the Chain of Responsibility (CoR).
Sentinel is Transtech’s flagship fatigue management platform that has been helping Australia’s most progressive transport and logistics operators remain compliant with the ever-changing fatigue management laws since its launch in 2006.
To illustrate the importance of compliance, Victoria Police’s recent ‘Operation Austrans’ targeted dangerous driving behaviour. Officers inspected almost 3000 heavy vehicles between May and June, during which 397 fatigue and work diary offences were detected.1
Over the past 9 years, Sentinel has been able to provide real-time fatigue information to the driver and back office staff based on the driver’s current fatigue management rule set. This continues to ring true today with Sentinel 4 boasting an extensive list of new and upgraded features that make it a truly unique product. Now, Sentinel provides the ability for the driver to be ‘offline’ for days or weeks and still provide full fatigue information to the driver. This means that operators can manage fatigue whilst in remote areas with low or no network connectivity.
Sentinel is refreshed with a familiar yet modern design that makes it even simpler to access fatigue information, set up real-time alerts, view detailed reports and more, from anywhere with an Internet connection. The operator is presented with a new window into driver fatigue with a clearer and more informative view. Sentinel is an enterprise-grade solution that supports all fatigue management rules and rule sets along with custom rules specifically tailored for your organisation.
