Driver Safety Alerts

By | Blog | No Comments

Utilizing TeMeDa’s robust Alert features, you can create Driver Safety Alerts to notify you or a designated employee via Email and/or SMS text. These Alerts will fit the exact needs of your company to manage and track Driver Safety for Mobiles you have deployed.

Our Driver Safety Alert options measure speed, aggressive driving (fast starts, sudden starts, high speed lane switching) and provides real time feedback. Here are the Alert names that are used for Driver Safety:

  • Harsh Braking Alert
  • Harsh Acceleration Alert
  • Harsh Maneuver Alert
  • Erratic Driving Alert

Our base configuration for Driver Safety Alerts is set with a value of 9 mph/s defining Harsh Acceleration and 11 mph/s defining Harsh Barking. These values are very hard on the vehicle and driver so we don’t recommend testing the Alerts once they are set up. If you need different values please contact us and we’ll work with you to find and set the values you need.

  • SmartWitness Camera Alerts – Alerts can also be triggered when a Video Event Data Recorder (VEDR) camera senses a Shock, Harsh Acceleration, Harsh Braking, Harsh Maneuver, and/or Panic Button event for one or more assets. Alerts can send notifications via Email and/or SMS text message.

Our safety feature Alert values are based on input from Interactive Driving Systems (IDS) http://www.virtualriskmanager.net/main/

If you’d like to set up Driver Safety Alerts for your company, please contact TeMeDa customer support today by emailing us at customer.support@temeda.com.

Sunset on 2G Network Gives The Helm Group a Second Shot at Telematics

By | Construction | No Comments

ForConstructionPros just released an article detailing how HELM Group saved tens of thousands of dollars by upgrading their telematics provider to TeMeDa.

"Peet had talked with his first telematics vendor about implementing the standard from the start of their relationship. “I made the assumption that over time they would want to embrace it, but it never came to pass,” he says. “It really didn’t make all that much difference to us for quite a while. But as more and more equipment comes to us with telematics as part of their standard build, we would really like for the data to display in one application.”"

Introducing TeMeDa

By | Blog | No Comments

A new take on telematics and metadata.

We are all connected to one another all day, every day, wherever we are. Enterprises are accustomed to their employees’ hyper connected-nature. This is a landmark year: the number of cellular subscriptions have now reached parity with human beings.

Naturally, this is only the start. Just as people have been more tightly connected, so too will the machines. Lots of them. Billions of machines will work closely with one another to provide higher efficiencies, more productivity, less down time and entirely new business models. That’s where TeMeDa comes in.

The origin of the name ‘TeMeDa’ is an acronym for the words tele and metadata.
