The Challenge

Fleet managers are turning to predictive analytics to stay on top of maintenance and mitigate part failures before they happen. However, managing the large amount of new data generated by vehicle sensors is challenging.

About The Customer
Any organization that relies on vehicles in its daily operations understands how critical it is to keep them up and running. Whether it’s a delivery company, a school district, a telecommunications provider, or a municipality, productivity can come
The Solution

Predixion Insight* can analyze data either in the cloud or edge devices, reducing the volume of information that needs to be transmitted. Sensors on fleet vehicles collect data about tire pressure, hydraulics, and other parts. The data is sent to Intel®-based IoT gateways on the vehicle, which then process data at the edge for immediate alerts, or send it to the cloud for longer-term analysis. The integrated Wind River Helix* Device Cloud delivers centralized remote management with a cloud-based platform.

Data Collected
Inventory Levels, Mileage, Parts Quality, Tire Pressure, Hydraulics
Operational Impact
  • [Cost Reduction - Maintenance]
    Fleet managers can reduce the costs associated with maintenance, while gaining control of scheduling and inventory.
  • [Cost Reduction - Energy]
    There are also smaller, but important, losses that can result from deferred maintenance—for example, reduced gas mileage due to low tire pressure.
  • [Data Management - Data Analysis]
    Data from these sources can be analyzed in real time on the industrial gateway in the truck to alert drivers of imminent failures, or pushed via the gateway to the cloud, for analysis by corporate headquarters and operations.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Reducing data transmission costs

  • It processes and analyzes data in real time to provide immediate predictions as to pending failures.

  • Reduce downtime and slash maintenance costs
