Bespoke solutions for buses
Squarell hardware is able to gather more parameters from a bus than a standard (OEM) FMS. For instance the speed, brake usage, RPM, ODO, idle time and emission (NOx/CO2) parameters, but also vehicle warning indicators. The combination of parameters provides the fleet owner/operator with valuable information about their buses. This information can be used for smart solutions aimed at saving fuel, predictive maintenance, reducing emissions and more.
Our main goal is providing standardised data for every vehicle in a bus fleet. Our method starts with the collection of vehicle parameters from various data protocols including CAN bus. Our hardware processes the collected data in a standardised format and makes this information available to the telematics systems of our clients. An example is the preparation and processing of FMS/CAN data for use with IP devices.
Squarell is the independent specialist in vehicle and CANbus data. Squarell’s technology makes it possible to read data signals from various types of vehicles, including buses, coaches and similar motorised vehicles.
Our hardware is ready to read vehicle data protocols from various vehicles, with or without an FMS CANbus. The collected data is processed by the Squarell Vehicle Data Interface and offered in a standardised format to the telematics systems in the bus.
The public transport sector is in a constant state of development and therefore, Squarell keeps a close eye on the market. Our solutions are aimed at saving energy and preserving a good environment. An example of this is the provision of data that can help predict vehicle maintenance and thus extend the lifetime of buses.
Who can benefit from our technology?
Squarell’s solutions are focused on improving the standardisation of vehicle data and it’s compatibility with onboard IT systems. That is why our technology is suitable for various parties involved in public transport, such as telematics service providers (TSPs), software and hardware providers, (local) authorities and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
How our technology is connected
Our technology can be used to connect new and existing IT systems in the public transport sector with the goal to standardise transport data.
Vehicle and parameter support
It is Squarell’s challenge to support all of the vehicles in a bus fleet. We already have a large database of supported vehicles that are scanned for parameters and compatibility. As soon as there are requests for reading parameters from new vehicles, our engineers go into the field to scan and represent the buses in our vehicle database. Our field engineers are able to scan a wide variety of buses such as combustion engine buses, gas (LNG/CNG) buses, electric buses and hybrid buses.
Besides the common parameters, Squarell is specialised in translating manufacturer specific messages to a uniform format. The available parameters give a good insight as to the vehicle status.
The Squarell Bus & Coach data solution is a unique tool for fleet managers and public transport operators to reduce costs, monitor fleets and reinforces positive and safe driving behaviour.
