How GPS Tracking Technology Supports Earth Day

20 Apr 2016

Earth Day is a day that is dedicated to reminding people how important it is to take care of Mother Earth. It is up to each and every person on the planet to make responsible decisions that will not only benefit the health and wellness of the planet today, but that will ensure its health and wellness for future generations. The decisions that you make today will influence tomorrow.

An excellent way to improve the health of the planet is by making conscious and smart decisions when it comes to driving. By monitoring your driving, you can conserve your fuel consumption and make your vehicle is running as efficiently as possible. If you own or manage a fleet of vehicles, keeping track of your drivers’ habits is inherently important.

How can you do that? – With GPS fleet tracking devices.

Here’s a look at some of the ways that GPS tracking devices support the health of the planet, not just on earth day, but every day.

  • Inhibits idling. When a vehicle is idling, it is unnecessarily consuming fuel and releasing chemicals into the environment. With a GPS tracking device, you can keep track of traffic and other conditions that may lead to idling, thus allowing your drivers to turn off their vehicles if they are going to be idling for more than 30 seconds.

 

  • Improves route efficiency. A GPS tracking device will allow your drivers to improve the efficiency of their routes. They will be able to combine trips, which means that they will reduce the amount of times that they use a vehicle in a day.

 

  • Improves engine performance.  A GPS tracking device can provide maintenance reminders. Routine maintenance is a crucial part of ensuring optimal engine performance.

 

  • Improves fuel efficiency. For example, a study reported by Consumer Reports revealed that a Toyota Camry (4 cylinder, 2.5 liter) had 40.3 mpg at 55 mph hour, but only had a 34.9 mpg driving at 65 mph.  In other words, once a vehicle goes over its optimal speed/fuel economy level, gas mileage decreases.  So, every time a driver speeds over the optimal speed, he is wasting fuel, gas, and contributing to greenhouse gases.

 

  • Helps anticipate stops. Suddenly stepping on the brakes is not only dangerous, but it can cause a vehicle to burn through more fuel. Thanks to a GPS tracking device, your drivers will be able to anticipate stops, which means that they will be able to step on the brakes with plenty of time and come to a gradual and safer stop.

A GPS tracking device for your fleet of vehicles is not only beneficial for the environment, but it also improves the safety of your drivers and others on the road.
