Automated Vehicle Locating System (AVLS) and Global Positioning System (GPS)
As of August 2008, Alam Flora has adopted technology to remotely monitor and pinpoint the location of all its operational vehicle by using the AVLS – the Automated Vehicle Locating System (AVLS) that utilises Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to locate and determine the geographical location of a vehicle and transmit the information the command centre. This system enables live, 24/7 monitoring to ensure that all activities are according to schedule.
Geographical Information System (GIS)
Apart from the location, other useful data that can be ascertained are the driving speed, driving hours, vehicle traveling distance and direction. All of these Geographical Information System (GIS) digital data are invaluable to reduce unnecessary idling time (to decrease fuel consumption), faster collection rate and identify vehicles that are due for maintenance. Equipped within the vehicles are geo-fencing capabilities, whereby an alert will be generated if any vehicles were to go over a pre-determined area. This system is solely intended for use by Alam Flora to effectively monitor the performance in real time thus improving productivity and fulfilling the clients’ needs.
