Azuga, an instant-install cloud-based GPS fleet tracking and driver behavior solution, announced a new capability that provides a more accurate idling and carbon footprint report than legacy GPS systems in the market. Azuga customers have reported reducing their fleet’s CO2 emissions by at least 600 pounds per vehicle annually by using this capability.

According to World Resources Institute, fuel consumption from vehicle use generates 75 percent of a vehicle’s CO2 emissions over its life cycle. Furthermore, The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says that most vehicles run at maximum efficiency at 60 miles per hour, and every 5 mph over 60 decreases efficiency by 6 percent. These factors, coupled with excessive idling, delayed maintenance and inefficient routing can contribute to increasing a fleet’s total CO2 emissions.

Azuga G2 technology actually “talks” to the engine every second versus traditional GPS systems that infer idling based on infrequent GPS signals and less accurate GPS speed and ignition sensing. Azuga gives fleet managers the most accurate and up-to-date information, which will reduce idling times, increase driver performance and ultimately reduce emissions.

The GPS fleet tracking solution’s technology reads vehicles’ engine and delivers emissions and idling reporting 60 times more often than traditional GPS systems. The information is sent to the cloud, giving fleet administrators real-time snapshots of vehicle health, fuel usage, carbon footprint and driver behavior.

With EPA fines ranging from approximately $52 to $32,000 in some states, fleet managers are scrambling to find solutions. Some of these solutions are costing up to three times more than our technology and delivering less-than-accurate reports. If idling is wrong, fleet manager’s carbon footprint calculations are wrong and drivers may be penalized unfairly.

Companies across the country are experiencing Azuga’s ability to address the unique needs of emission reduction for fleets with breakthrough pricing (70 cents per day/per vehicle), lifetime hardware warranties and no contracts.
