Connect The Cornerstone To Improving Life Cycle Costs. Reducing Your Cost of Ownership using Smart Bus Technologies
Connect Reducing TCO: Technological (The equipment factor) Select the right equipment/tools (Hybrid, CNG, Electric, etc.) Automate tasks Fine-tune shifting programs Improve integration/reduce loses Process Change (Institutional and human factors) Improve driver efficiency Improve maintenance practices (predictive, preventive vs reactive) Reduce troubleshooting time Improve decision making process (based on real-time and statistical actual information) Train, coach, motivate staff Incentive programs
Connect Is your data an asset or a liability? Liabilities: - Cost Collect Protect Process Back-up Support etc. - Knowledge “You are liable for what you know” Benefits: - Data is only as useful as the changes it produces - Information enables Better decision making process Training and coaching opportunities Avoiding mistakes (First time quality) Planning Going from reactive to proactive etc.
Connect Making data benefits outweigh liabilities? - Identify your KPIs and make them part of your teams’ DNA. - Get the information to the right person at the right time. - Ensure people has access to the information and knows what it means and how to use it. - Automatic reports are easy to get but typically hard to use. - Train an couch your people on a regular basis. - Create sense of ownership for results (accountability). - Reduce cost of infrastructure Consider hosted services Pay-as-you-go Comprehensive support contracts - Only collect data that you need and that you are ready to act upon. - Adjust your data collection strategies dynamically as your needs change. - Let your current “pains” dictate you data collection and not the other way around.
Connect Time is finite. So, let’s narrow down our talk… Bus Health Operator Performance Bus performance
Connect Shall we or shall we not monitor our drivers?
Connect You entrust your drivers with: Delivering the service to the riders (on-time performance). Representing the TA in front of the public (courtesy). Safety of the passengers and the rest of the public, including his or her own. The rider’s experience (smooth or rough rides). Up to 25% of the total cost of ownership of the vehicles. Etc.
Connect Economic Driving Analysis Driving Style is a key element for Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) savings. The system is capable of analyzing various sources of information using our design parameters and knowledge to locate drivers performing in “High Fuel Consumption” areas. Demand Engine Torque vs. Engine Rev’s. Demand Engine Torque vs. Vehicle Speed
Connect Development opportunity for drivers Improved communication between drivers, supervisors and planners Back-up information in case of customer claims Better understanding of routes and their impact on driving habits Driver performance measurement enables driver incentive programs Factual data about road events Reduced fuel usage: reduction of GHG emissions, dependency on non-renewable resources Reduced wear and tear of vehicles: less maintenance required Less likelihood of accidents and customer claims Less stressful workday
Connect Acceleration Turn right Turn left Brakes G-Sensor (accelerometer) Severe Maneuver Detection
Connect CANBUS PARAMETERS VEHICLE DATA BUS ENGINE ECU GEARBOX ECU SHIFT SELECTOR ABS/EBS RETARDER RPM Driver Demand Torque Vehicle Speed Drive Started With High Acceleration Drive Started With High Acceleration RPM < 1000 Vehicle Speed < 5 Torque Convertor Slip > 30% Driver Demand Torque > 80% RPM < 1000 Vehicle Speed < 5 Torque Convertor Slip > 30% Driver Demand Torque > 80% Torque Convertor Slip combine multiple conditions for each event MUX
Connect Driver Maneuver Awareness System Real Time Driver Training Excessive aggression level High aggression level Medium aggression level Calm driving Activation button (for immediate feedback) Activation button (for immediate feedback)
Connect If we do it with drivers, why would we not do it with all the vehicles?
Connect Bus Health And Performance: Real-time (Reacting to the inevitable) Location awareness Dial the bus Access from a vehicle Read diagnostic codes in real-time Review recent history leading to event Get real-time alerts for any event Analysis and reports (Understanding and preventing the evitable) Understanding distribution of problems in the fleet. Detecting vehicles getting out of the trend. Reporting and compliance requirements Tracking/Qualifying improvements and campaigns Manage by objectives Preventive vs Reactive Maintenance and Predictive vs Preventive Maintenance.
Connect 4 P’s - Maintenance Intervene Prior to Failure
Connect Bus Locator and Status Location Awareness
Connect Currently in Development Battery Voltage Monitoring Doors Open/Close Times Air Compressor Wear/Failure and System Leakage
Connect Trip reports, Fuel graphs, Exception reports, Driver and bus Gantt Charts (colored trips), Fault codes, MTBF & MDBF and much more... R eports can be interactive or sent by email automatically. They can also be exported to Excel. Trip Summary Fuel Savings
