The term “big data” has been roaming the halls for a while now. It’s a phrase used to describe large volumes of data, both structured and unstructured, generated on a daily basis. For a trucking fleet, that could include data on vehicle location, driver Hours of Service, fuel economy, vehicle speed, in-cab video footage and delivery details. But it’s not the volume of data that counts. One can have all the data in world, but it’s what is done – or can be done – with that data that makes the difference.
'Turning Big Data into Actionable Safety Intelligence’ examines how collecting data about the location, performance, usage and status of vehicles and drivers can help fleet operators obtain meaningful information about their organizations and use that information to change driver behavior, dramatically reduce crash rates and ultimately save lives.
