Driving carefully is the best general safety action. To help your drivers to follow regulations you can define zones with a firm maximum speed. Inside the zone, the vehicle simply cannot exceed the preset level.
Speed is a contributing factor in many accidents. The laws of physics show that when speed doubles the braking distance is four times longer and the crash violence is four times greater. It’s easy to see that keeping speed down is a principal safety factor. And in your depot, restricted speed can reduce accidental damage to panels, lights, and rear-view mirrors.
Volvo Safety Zones is a refinement of geofencing technology where we add intelligence and functionality to the vehicle. It is created in the Fleet Management user interface. You simply set the borders of a zone and set the maximum speed you want to permit. Areas close to schools and public parks are obvious applications, but so too hazardous stretches of road. And you can create as many zones you like.
