MiX Telematics, the global provider of telematics-based fleet management solutions, is previewing elements of a new telematics strategy for bus operators on its stand, H174 in Hall 20 of the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, at this year's Coach & Bus Live exhibition. To be formally presented in detail at the forthcoming Busworld exhibition (Kortrijk, Belgium 17-23 October 2013) the new strategy encompasses a broad spectrum of telematics-based options, all of which can be customised in line with customer requirements.

"For the very first time we are bringing a wide range of telematics and related solutions together under a fully-integrated umbrella," comments Steve Coffin, Marketing & Operations Director for MiX Telematics. "In doing so, we will be enabling bus operators to develop strategies for fuel-efficient, safe and legally-compliant operation by way of a single system which provides an holistic view of their activities and delivers information to management and drivers in a simple, clear and concise manner. As always, our team on in-house specialists will work alongside our customers to ensure the optimum strategy is determined in every case and benefits maximised over the long term.

"At the heart of the system is our well-established and thoroughly proven fleet management solution. This has been delivering economic, efficiency and safety benefits to operators worldwide for the past 15 years. Working in close cooperation with our customers, our research and development team has now developed the system's capabilities and capacity so that other products and services can be added to the core package in order to provide a complete spectrum of operational benefits.

"For example, in addition to essential driver and vehicle monitoring, features such as enhanced RIBAS (see editor's note), Daily Checks, Damage Reporting, Passenger Counting, Tyre Pressure Monitoring, Alcolock and more can all be incorporated into an all-encompassing solution. Moreover, we have enhanced our reporting system to ensure reports are always straightforward and easy to interpret.

"Never before has so much been available to operators within a single solution and we are very much looking forward to presenting the benefits to operators visiting both Coach & Bus Live and Busworld Kortrijk."

At Kortrijk, there will be a detailed press briefing on the company's stand, 444 in Hall 4, at 14:30 on Press Day, 17 October, to which all media are welcome. In addition, customer presentations on the new strategy will take place at 11:00 and 14:30 on 18 October and again at 11:00 on the 19 October.

RIBAS is MiX Telematics' dashboard-mounted display which provides instant feedback to the driver on his or her driving style. The functionality of the latest generation RIBAS system has been extended to include Green/Amber/Red status lights. These lights reflect the current driving-style, telling the driver when he or she is driving correctly, when a pre-programmed operational parameter (see below) is in danger of being exceeded and when a parameter has been exceeded. In this way, the new generation RIBAS display works pro-actively to help drivers stay within their vehicle's pre-programmed safety and efficiency parameters at all times.

The green status light, which takes the form of a MiX Telematics logo at the foot of the display unit, indicates that a vehicle is being driven correctly. In such circumstances, this is the only light illuminated on the display.

The amber and red status lights are incorporated into the icons appearing alongside the RIBAS letters, each of which stands for a pre-programmed operational parameter where:
R = over-Revving
I = excessive Idling
B = harsh Braking
A = harsh Acceleration
S = over-Speeding

Whenever a parameter comes close to being exceeded, the amber light illuminates, alerting the driver to a potential problem and thereby allowing corrective action to be taken. The amber light is intended purely as a warning sign; no record of an infringement is made against the driver by Fleet Manager at this time. However, should the amber warning be ignored and the parameter exceeded, the infringement is recorded by Fleet Manager and the red light illuminates.
