  • Patent number: 11017483
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for tracking information of an equipment including a telematics device configured to receive data from the equipment to determine a telematics information. The telematics information includes at least two of an equipment type, a location, a duration in the location, and miles travelled. A transmission device is configured to transmit the vehicle telematics information to at least one of a third party entity device, a government device and a mobile device.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20190299794
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for tracking charge information of a vehicle. A sensor monitors one or more parameters of the vehicle over a period of time. A telematics device receives and processes the parameters to determine a vehicle telematics information. The telematics device transmits the vehicle telematics information to an entity device.

  • Patent number: 8554513
    Abstract: A method of testing and proving fuel efficiency improvements includes installing a telematic device in each of a first plurality of vehicles and a second plurality of vehicles. The telematic devices collect baseline fuel consumption data during a first time period and collect test fuel consumption data during a second time period. Between the first and second time periods, at least one operating parameter of the second plurality of vehicles is modified such that the baseline fuel consumption data and the test fuel consumption data can be analyzed to determine any fuel efficiency improvements caused by the modified operating parameter. To ensure reliable and statistically-significant results, each plurality of vehicles may include 15 vehicles and each time period may include 60 days.
