Issuing Instructions to Gabage Truck Drivers from a Mobile Management System and Providing Driving Support
TaiyoTaihei Kogyo Corporation is a leading engineering company in Japan. This system was delivered to a collection business as a case study for a mobile management system. By registering garbage collection requests from costumers on a map, this system integratescentrally manages everything from customer management to collection records management. The IPC-BX 800 industrial computer has the daily schedule of the trucks and the collection rout, and that information is displayed on a map. Instructions to make additional unscheduled collections can be sent to the driver by cell phone network to accurately. The collection status and record information are sent to an office (base station), and billing to garbage collection customers can be performed as needed.
An LCD monitor and computer can be separately installed on the truck.
Guides the driver with the optimal collection route
The information is managed at the management center so even if the garbage collection computer system is stolen, no information is leaked.
The enhanced processing capacity of the computer enables display of map information, detailed collection destination information, where to park during collection, and important customer information. This system differs from regular car navigation systems in that the management center provides the appropriate collection route. Even new drivers unfamiliar with the collection route can respond just like experienced drivers.
In the past, after completing the collection work, a driver would have to put in extra hours and create a daily report. The mobile management system enables the work status and results to be reported automatically from the onboard computer online, thereby reducing the driver's work and greatly reducing the cost even from the business side.
For example, if a truck cannot make a collection within the time frame due to an unforeseen garbage collection volume, that information is shared between vehicles, and the collection route for support is indicated on the map.
The following functions have achieved by linking the collection truck management system for collection businesses with the trucks by cell phone network.
