TransCore integrates ROVR system into TransSuite

TransCore is integrating its ROVR (Real-time Onboard Vehicle Reporting) fleet vehicle tracking system into its TransSuite advanced traffic management system (ATMS). By using the ROVR system’s GPS and GSM communications capability, departments of transportation (DOTs) will be able to efficiently manage their construction, maintenance, snow plows, and safety vehicles within their traffic management system in real-time. Users will be able to identify the location of their fleet in the TransSuite ATMS map application, allowing them to respond faster to roadway incidents. The additional GPS data can also provide vehicle information for travel time calculations.

The compact ROVR device plugs into the OBD (On-Board Diagnostics) port located under the dashboard on every vehicle built since 1996. The telematics device can help manage and optimize fleet use and fuel efficiency. The system’s geofencing capabilities can also be used to monitor routes, beats, or ‘off-limit’ activities. “Most departments of transportation have fleets with 50-1,000 vehicles,” explained Scott Brosi, TransCore vice president. “By integrating fleet monitoring technology with traffic management systems, we can offer authorities a tremendous tool to better utilize their maintenance, construction and safety services, right within their trusted traffic management system. We have even outfitted our own entire 600-vehicle fleet with ROVR and have documented significant fuel savings.”
