Fleet Tracker Blueprint

Build a real-time connected fleet monitoring system.

Problem
Commercial vehicle fleet managers are required by law to track various driver and vehicle behaviors. Beyond the data logging mandated by law, there are other behaviors that employers might want to track. If they had a low-cost, reliable, and technical monitoring solution, they could remove or minimize the risks associated with their fleet management.
Solution
Remove the hassle from remote monitoring with the best practices discussed in this Blueprint, designed to accelerate the development of new security solutions and products. We will create a Twilio-powered device that keeps watch over remote locations and alerts administrators of intrusions or safety concerns.

We will create a Twilio-powered fleet tracker that uses off-the-shelf components to track and log: miles driven, hours of uptime and downtime, locations, average speed, and fuel consumption.
