The logistics industry is adopting smart and effective management practices to prioritize driver safety by focusing on aspects like vehicle maintenance, dynamic navigation, and predicting environmental conditions. The Internet of Things is a high-potential technology that provides assisted driving to the fleet drivers where they can optimize routes according to the situation and avoid the chances of road accidents.
IoT facilitates constant monitoring of a vehicle to ensure its maintenance and performance. With the help of sensors installed on different vehicle positions, the driver can have real-time information about the conditions like tire pressure, temperature, battery status, and fuel levels. Using this information, the probability of knowing the vehicleâ€™s health increases that allows the drivers to take immediate decisions. All thanks to IoT that helps the drivers in receiving latest updates regarding their vehicleâ€™s condition in case of any on-road breakdowns. Hereâ€™s how the logistics sector is giving high importance to driver safety with the help of The Internet of Things.
