Future Developments/Extensions

Navigation Device (PND) in vehicle for field staff to drive to
point of interest without the need for direction from base
staff with access to the system.


Vehicle Access System


Extension of Driver Identification system that combines RFID
and Relay (Engine cut) to ensure the right driver tag is read
before engine starts


SMS text alerts


Alert Key EPC staff on their cell phone of critical vehicle
events such as stolen vehicles or accidents

Challenges


Tamper


A few tamper cases. Mostly new drivers who
didn’t know there were anti
-
tamper measures
in place


Lack of an Official Vehicle Use Policy


EPC Vehicle Tracker is the tool for vehicle
management but it needs a guide/policy to
guide its use. One rule for all and not ad hoc
rules that apply to some but not others.
