The TRUCKING PROJECT was created to meet the specific needs of companies operating in the environmental hygiene sector. In detail, the system allows:
a) the management of the fleet of vehicles and work machines, by planning their operational address and technical control
b) the programming and daily tracking of the activities carried out by waste collection and transport operators and vehicle maintenance technicians
The automated solution is based on RFID-UHF technology and guarantees both the “on field” collection and management of data from the vehicles and operators,
and interconnection with the Customer’s ERP systems, also in compliance with the Enterprise 4.0 requirements. The project consists of a very intuitive software interface and a model 821 distribution machine, divided into rotating discs made up of compartments that can be accessed via multiple doors.
Each compartment houses a so-called “driving envelope” equipped with RFID tag, and containing the keys and travelling documents of a fleet vehicle. Upon identification of the user by means of a RFID tag (badge), the machine delivers the envelope of the assigned vehicle to the user. At the end of the shift, the user returns the envelope to the machine, always using their identification badge.
The system guarantees a fully automatic and configurable management of the delivery of the envelopes, as well as total control in real time of the vehicles and the users involved. It also allows to memorise the position of the Driving Envelopes and the pick-up and return events, and also to configure and manage any automatic alerts remotely. Finally, the sequence of pick up and loading events is logged on a daily basis and can be consulted at any time.
