The article presents the author's views on the impact of fleet telematics systems on the future of road transport. Telematics is coming into its own following an 8 or 10-year period when telematics essentially meant vehicle tracking and the impact on businesses was an ability to see where the vehicles were, says the author. The next generation of systems has now changed the face of telematics, as they can be used to assess the impact a vehicle is having on the environment, opines the author.
