What is the Driver Awareness Panel?
Improving driving behavior by using the Driver Awareness Panel (DAP) will result in less fuel consumption, safer driving, reduction in wear and tear and CO2 emission.
As you know, the change in driving behavior by creating a higher level of awareness has a significant impact on operational fleet costs. We have seen that this change in behavior by using the DAP leads to fuel savings from 5% up to 17% (see our customer success stories). Also, the maintenance costs for brake and tire wear are reduced.
The DAP challenges the driver in an intuitive manner to improve his or her driving behavior. It’s built-in algorithms take care of driver attention loss in the long run to ensure constant safety assistance. The driving assistance is meant to gain a better, safer, cleaner and more economical way of operating your fleet.
The DAP’s user interface has six indicators that individually will give instant visual and audible feedback to the driver to help improve alleged driving inconsistencies.
Software data kit and hardware version
There is a DAP data kit available (called SWDAP) so you can make your own software solution to be integrated into your onboard displays and mobile devices. A hardware version, credit card sized, is also available and can be placed on the dashboard.
The DAP solution, which includes monitoring of the improvements in your fleet, is available as a stand-alone solution or as an addition to the solution of your telematics service provider.
The six indicators on the DAP are:
- High RPM
Unsteady driving (fluctuating accelerator pedal usage)
Anticipating the road ahead
The DAP makes a trip analysis over the last 30 trips (ignition on – ignition off). At contact on (without ignition on) the DAP will give a report for each parameter.
