Smart driving for Wolseley UK

By [email protected] - 25th August 2015 - 12:20

Wolseley UK has introduced Masternaut Connect across 193 branch vehicles with a view to enhance customer deliveries, increase driver safety and reduce fuel consumption by up to 10 per cent. Following a three-month pilot trial with the new system, the company has now rolled it out across a significant number of light commercial and licensed goods vehicles nationwide. Feedback has demonstrated fuel savings of between 8-10 per cent. The driverâs behaviour is monitored through an in-cab light bar, which alerts them when specific harsh driving events are detected, including rapid acceleration, braking and cornering, idling of the engine and speeding. The light bar then notifies the driver to the degree of which they have exceeded a driving event in real-time, allowing for an instant rectification.
