Airport utility vehicle monitoring

Enhancing Ground Vehicle Fleet Management with Helios Tracker

The problem

The Laufer Group, a pioneering force in the aircraft ground services sector for both airlines and VIP clients in Israel, has undertaken a substantial mission: monitoring its entire fleet of utility vehicles stationed on the airport tarmac.

This diverse fleet includes aircraft tugs, generators, operational vehicles, and even luxurious limousines. Some vehicles operate under their own power, while others rely on our internal power sources. The fleet encompasses a mix of traditional combustion engines and state-of-the-art electric models.

• Operating around the clock to support a wide range of airport activities, this fleet is dispersed across the entire airport premises. Locating their precise position can be challenging after specific tasks are completed. Furthermore, the operations manager lacks comprehensive real-time visibility into each vehicle's location and operational status.

• The airport enforces various location and speed-related traffic restrictions, but the fleet manager currently lacks the means to ensure compliance.

• The fleet is operated by a diverse group of drivers and operators who do not consistently use the same vehicles. Without thorough monitoring, it is impossible to determine the real-time operator of each vehicle or to analyze historical data to review past events.

• Consequently, the fleet manager cannot fully assess the efficiency of these tools and their operational effectiveness.

The solution

The Helios Tracker offers a sophisticated monitoring solution tailored to this fleet, featuring specialized units dedicated to monitoring fleet activity, location, and service. Helios Tracker system will provide a real-time representation of the equipment's location in the field, enabling the reception of diverse alerts and messages. This will significantly enhance fleet management efficacy and safety."

• The system continuously monitors each vehicle's location, reporting its status (off, active, in motion) to provide the fleet manager with comprehensive insights beyond just location.

• A set of predefined limits is integrated into the system, alerting the system administrator to any deviations. Alerts can be immediate or automatic reports at specified intervals.

• The system monitors the actual vehicle operator, saving this information for real-time or reporting purposes, enabling the examination of driver and vehicle safety levels.

• By examining the working hours of each vehicle, the system helps evaluate efficiency and the necessity of these vehicles for the company's operations.

The feature

Each vehicle, trailer, or utility vehicle will have a Helios Tracker device installed. Each vehicle will be paired with the most appropriate unit from the Helios Tracker range, tailored to the specific features and information requirements of the vehicle. For instance, electric vehicles will be equipped with units designed for high-voltage vehicles, enabling monitoring of the vehicle's battery status and charging. Luxury vehicles will be furnished with devices that interface with the vehicle's Cunbus, providing details on fuel levels, door conditions, and passenger compartment temperature. All this information will be displayed on large screens in the control center, offering real-time tracking and oversight to system operators.
