Zone Management

ZONE MANAGEMENT

FULL CONTROL

Zone Management means that vehicles can comply with restrictions and specific requirements depending on geographical position. Drivers are notified when entering specific zones and can adjust their driving behaviour and take action accordingly. Using real-time GPS tracking of the vehicle’s position, the system alerts the driver when approaching areas designated as silent, zero emissions or safety zones.
   
The more you know about how your vehicles perform and how they are driven, the better you can plan and develop your business. It’s all about timely and detailed information – presented properly to support your decision-making. The Volvo Telematics system can be factory installed or retro-fitted on any modern bus and has the capacity to play a vital role in optimising your operation.

Create geographical zones

By setting map boundaries and downloading them to the vehicle’s fleet management software it is possible to create zones in order to apply recommendations, rules and restrictions to vehicles entering a zone. Using real-time GPS tracking of the vehicle’s position, the system alerts the driver when approaching such a zone.

Zone characteristics

Each zone is given attributes. These may be a speed limit, a time frame or a calendar controlling other parameters. A zone can be valid for all or some of the vehicles in the fleet. The zones may also overlap.

Silent zones

In a silent zone the noise level is restricted for the benefit of the citizens. Cities have different reasons for creating silent zones, for example close to residential areas, recreation areas or hospitals. Zone Management switches to silent drive prior to entering the silent zone, and the vehicle goes back to standard operation after exiting the zone.

Safety zones

Every city street and every road has a speed limit. By specially defining the low-speed zones it is possible to ensure the driver is always aware of the current limit. The system warns and reports if vehicle speed exceeds the limit. It is also possible to actively control the speed of the vehicle.

Zero-emission zones

An increasing number of cities restrict traffic with combustion engines in sensitive areas. Geofencing is used to prevent vehicles from entering the zone unless they are able to run in electric mode, without a combustion engine running. Traffic data from the vehicles is used to calculate and predict energy consumption, thus enabling electric drive throughout the zero-emission zone.

Requirements

The use of Zone Management requires the installation of Volvo Bus Fleet Management.
