Almost 800 vehicles belonging to Posta Romana National Company (CNPR) will have GPS devices starting January 1st, 2015, after a 400,000 EUR investment, informs Agerpres.
Until now, only 150 vehicles were being GPS-ed, in the 2010 – 2011 period.
Each and every monitored vehicle will have a GPS module and a CANBUS equipment capable to collect data regarding their position and velocity, alongside their functioning parametres as they are monitored on their board computer. Of the total, 390 of the vehicles dedicated to value transports will be endowed with panic buttons and will have a dispatcher authorised by the Romanian Police General Inspectorate. By pushing these buttons, in case of an assault, the Police dispatcher connected to 112 emergency call will be alarmed.
By introducing the GPS system on the CNPR entire car fleet will cut fuel consumption’s expenditures, those with the overtime paid to the drivers, and also the expenses with the vehicles’ repairing, by controlling the speed. In addition, it will cut the time wasted by using the optimum routes, without unjustified kilometres, and will increase the security of the exploitation.
