Industry Analysis

The coach industry today has been in a quick developing stage along with people’s increasing demands for transport and accelerated constructions of the expressways. The soaring number of the vehicles is impressive, but also brings various problems due to the backward management of the industry. Over speed, overloading, tailgating and traffic accidents caused by fatigue driving are unable to be eliminated; low operating efficiency, high administrative costs, scattered scheduling, waste of resources, all these issues have hindered the development of the coach industry.The coach administrators are faced with a series of challenges:

1. Where is the vehicle located? How is it going on with the driver? How is the road conditions?

2. How can they eliminate the potential hazards from the drivers such as driving against the prescribed routes, fatigue driving and illegal drivings like tailgating and making calls in driving?

3. How can they timely rescue the victims when the coach encounters an accident on the way?

4. How can they rapidly and effectively distinguish the responsibility after an accident?

 

These all above are problems preventing the further smooth progress of the coach industry and the administrators need to tackle with quickly. Simply depending on the traditional fixed-point checking cannot ensure the safety of the vehicles and people. Large number of passengers, lacking supervision staff, unfixed routes can be the obvious problems in reality. Therefore, for the coach companies, a complete solution integrated with accident prevention, real-time tracking and data analytic is of highly importance.

Solutions

CareDrive, as a specialist in commercial vehicle safety management, provides its unique solutions based on the current challenges facing the coach companies. The Driver Fatigue Monitor MR688 and Anti Collision Warning System AWS650, CareDrive’s independently developed drive safety systems, can be integrated with the fleet management system of the buses companies. MR688 can identify if the driver becomes fatigued or distracted through detecting the driver’s pupil, while AWS650 can judge if the driver is in danger by calculating and analyzing the distance with the vehicle ahead and the road lanes. When identifying the drivers are in danger, the systems will trigger alerts to the drivers to avoid an accident. At the same time they will deliver the alarm signals, images, video and other data such as driving speed and the location to the fleet management center. With these information the managers can analyze and better understand the state quo of the driver including his mental state and driving habit. So they can better educate and guide the driver, and formulate relevant rules to lower the accident rate.
