The AVL Automatic Vehicle Locator tracks down vehicles or groups of vehicles within seconds, according to the company. It inputs data into client-based software. An automatic alert, via a PC, makes notifications on speeding, unauthorized use, and excessive idling. A button can also be installed that allows drivers to request help during an emergency. Arrow markers indicate the direction each driver took; drivers are color coded for identification purposes. The company claims that the vehicle unit has a daily check-in “heartbeat” to base to make sure that all systems are functioning at optimal levels, and automatic logging of equipment use and engine hours keeps records, allowing for mistake-free maintenance reports.
