Teletrac Navman has added a new automated AI tool to its suite of software solutions for fleets, aimed at supporting operators with the move over to electric vehicles.
The Electric Vehicle Readiness Tool integrates with the Teletrac Navman advanced suite of fleet management and tracking platforms and analyzes all telematics data to provide operators with detailed recommendations of where electric vehicles could be adopted into their operation, according to the company. The company created the solution to help fleets adopt cleaner vehicles to reduce their carbon footprint and meet state government mandated limitations.
The new Electric Vehicle Readiness Tool helps fleets calculate the total cost of ownership of an electric vehicle switch versus the existing fleet (purchase price, residual value, taxes, insurance, maintenance, electricity costs), as well as the total CO2 and fuel savings the business would generate.
The new solution will also recommend the ideal electric vehicles to switch to and advise on how many and what type of chargers are required to run those vehicles. It can also calculate the cost of the chargers, according to the company. The Electric Vehicle Readiness Tool uses the power of AI together with historical telematics data to provide a meaningful evaluation for fleet operators.
