Developing solutions for driver safety: identifying driving patterns with Navixy API

Safety is a top priority for most fleets, which is why improving driver behavior on the road is a crucial goal. We’ve prepared this partner spotlight to showcase how AfrikaPanorama recently used Navixy API to build custom reports for Bralima, a prominent brewery and regional subsidiary of HEINEKEN Group. By expanding our platform’s core functionalities and building their own custom solutions, they were able to create an efficient tool to oversee driving patterns and identify key problem areas for increased safety across their entire fleet.

Tailored solutions from Navixy for driver behavior

Headquartered in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, AfrikaPanorama is a TSP that provides geolocation services, fuel control, and equipment monitoring throughout Central Africa. When their customer Bralima of the HEINEKEN Group, one of the largest beer brands in the world, needed a custom solution to enhance a part of its fleet safety, AfrikaPanorama chose Navixy API thanks to its flexibility and ease of use.

Frequent safety infractions can lead to a number of problems for fleets. Unsafe driving corresponds with an increase in accidents, costing businesses thousands of dollars from replacing damaged goods, repairing vehicles, insurance payouts, and possible litigation. Therefore, Bralima needed reports that would identify the most common violations as well as who was committing them to save themselves time and money.

Navixy API for custom reports: identify problems and analyze trends

In addition to the many built-in reports available in Navixy, it’s also possible to pull data using Navixy API to address specific needs and build customized tools. Below, we’ll explain two of many custom reports that AfrikaPanorama created for Bralima, the API calls used to make them, and the impact this solution had on their business.

Snapshot of overall fleet safety

The first report summarizes key data and events for select vehicles in a specific period of time to provide a quick and efficient overview of fleet vehicle behavior. As a result, this enables Bralima to keep a closer eye on how different fleet vehicles are behaving. The report tracks a number of safety violations and additional variables, such as:

  • Overspeeding
  • Hard braking
  • Hard turning
  • Crash
  • Fuel consumption
  • Average speed
  • Driving hours

Obtaining data similar to this report requires several API calls, with a portion of the data coming from a Geofence report. To generate this report, a tracker/generate call is run first, utilizing Plugin 8 for the Geofence report which contains data specific to the report requested. Once all data is plugged in and the report generated, a tracker/retrieve call is run to collect the data from the report, resulting in a customized chart displaying the necessary data in a functional view.

Identifying dangerous drivers: custom report for weak links

For even greater insight into driver behavior patterns, a dashboard was built to show the main points of attention for the top 20 non-safety-compliant vehicles in a given time period.

Data like this can reveal significant patterns that are most likely to contribute to safety violations. By identifying the most common problem areas, Bralima can take the proper measures to address the weak pinpoints in their fleet. In the long run, this results in fewer violations, and thus fewer road incidents, fines, and other accident-related costs.

As stated by AfrikaPanorama CEO Christian Lema, “All of these reports help the staff to have the qualitative overview and the right trend on all the fleet and constitute a real decision-making helper tool.”
