Most trials do not accurately measure vehicle hardware performance. This is due to either significant day-to-day operational differences or errors introduced by bad vehicle selection.
The knock-on effect is that inaccurate trials produce misleading conclusions about vehicle hardware performance, which then lead to misguided purchasing decisions.
Failed trials waste precious time and resources, and the resulting poor purchasing increases fleet operational costs (or TCO).
Dynamon has developed Precision Trial Analytics to help logistics companies perform successful and accurate vehicle hardware trials. This enables logistics companies to identify the optimum vehicle hardware specific to their operation that achieves minimum TCO and environmental impact.
Precision Trial Analytics is a tool to help you design and perform accurate trials that will measure the true performance of vehicle hardware within your operation – without your operational variability or unrepresentative vehicle choice skewing the results.
There are a large number of hardware solutions available in the market and it is not cost effective to trial them all.
Hardware solutions have an easily identifiable purchase and service cost. They also have a difficult to calculate fuel cost. These costs must be understood to find the product with the minimum total-cost-of-ownership (TCO). Precision Trial Analytics allows you to accurately predict which products have the lowest TCO. This solution allows you to quickly identify which products to take forward into a cost-effective real-world trial.
Precision Trial Analytics accesses live data direct from your fleet telematics provider to automatically identify the most representative vehicles and routes for the trial.
From these vehicles Precision Trial Analytics automatically identifies two groups that will allow you to accurately compare Hardware A and Hardware B. The size of the groups is automatically created based on the required accuracy of the trial and the required trial length.
During the trial, Precision Trial Analytics continuously monitors and displays the performance of the vehicle groups. Monitoring compares key variables that influence vehicle fuel consumption to ensure the trial remains accurate and changes in vehicle performance can be attributed to the difference between Hardware A and Hardware B.
Precision Trial Analytics will automatically process the trial results and issue a confidence score in the final measurement, so you can be sure that the fuel saving you have measured is truly due to the hardware you have trialled.
With this valuable data you are now equipped to make smarter vehicle hardware purchasing decisions that drive down the cost and environmental impact of operating your fleet.
Dynamon’s Analytics connects directly to your existing telematics provider. Telematics data is cleansed and standardised to a common format enabling data from multiple providers to be analysed simultaneously.
Dynamon’s Analytics enhances telematics data with local terrain and weather data for a more accurate analysis of fuel consumption and tyre performance.
Because Precision Trial Analytics is connected to and analyses your vehicle telematics data, we are able to take into account the variables that your vehicles will face during their trial.
Unexpected diverted journeys, differences in road incline and driver performance are just some examples of the considerations that Precision Trial Analytics can process as part of your accurate trial.
Dynamon’s Precision Trial Analytics uses historic telematics data to accurately design the trial. Telematics data is then monitored live throughout the trial to ensure that the fuel saving being measured is due to the hardware being trialled and not the operational variability.
