Intelligent Fleet Management System 2001-01-3352

In this paper, we show an application for controlling a fleet of vehicles, specially designed for Transport Companies. The main goal of this application is to achieve an optimized resources management for a transport company, as well as a more efficient and safe transport of goods. The system has built-in intelligent modules to perform optimization tasks related to route planning, pickup and delivery of goods, and transport costs estimation based on historical and current data. Also, a Geographic Information System was developed and included as an active component of our system, to represent the vehicle location obtained by means of GPS and transmitted via GSM/SMS. The user interface is the front/end tool of the fleet operator in order to manage all resource and track their usage. Company customers have a Web based application to hire transport services on-line, and to track their merchandise on a map generated in real time, which shows the current vehicle location on the road and the route that load will follow as well.
