The project logically continues a wide web-project connected with the control of the vehicle fleet for coal sector companies. The project is made under control of Rockpile Solutions LLC. The participants of the project team are the official partners of that company.
The main goal is the porting of the existing web application (PWA) into the mobile format and further development of the product for Android tablets and iPads. As a result, drivers of a coal sector company are supposed to make notes of activities on the route and operators and supervisors are supposed to follow the status of any route and get all the reports of the routes done.
The mobile app follows the geographical location of trucks by GPS signal and, depending on the route and driver’s location on it, offers different variants of further actions. If the truck is near a petrol station, there will be the option for refuelling available. If the truck is near a coal loading point, the option of surveying the documents of the load (which means that the loading took place) etc. Drivers can make notes on resting hours, accidental breakage of the truck and other events that affect the time on the way.
For different drivers different routes are available in frames of the projects available.
In case of route changes the operator can send all the necessary information to the mobile application and the driver can just confirm the information received or confirm it and upgrade the information at once so that navigator could use the upgraded route.
The application covers different countries that is why the system converts different units of measurement for refueling or loading depending on the country truck is in.
By the end of the route, a report is generated. It is sent to the supervisor responsible for this or that part of the route and vehicle fleet.
At the moment the process of porting from web into mobile format is fully completed and the project is still developing as we receive new tasks from the Customer. These tasks are based on the demands of the future clients of the new product and the customers of the released product.
The main business goal of the project was the logical development of the released product in order to reach a wider audience and to meet the needs of existing customers.
