Brazilian division of LafargeHolcim, one of the largest manufacturers of building materials in the world, ensures the safety of drivers with Galileosky vehicle monitoring equipment. This allows the company to fight organized crime on the roads. According to statistics, every 10 minutes one car is stolen in the capital of Rio de Janeiro alone. There are more than 100 million cars are registered in Brazil in total.
Galileosky 7.0 GPS devices track the vehicle location. They can also detect the GSM signal jamming and manage to transfer the location point to the server before the stolen car is taken to the box for disassembling for spare parts. Local companies do not use any dashboard cameras or other recording devices in cars because of the threat to the drivers lives, so this solution was especially in demand.
Another feature of the devices that has attracted LafargeHolcim is the drivers’ schedule control. In Brazil, tachographs are not utilized for that, so Galileosky trackers manage work and rest hours according to local laws. Drivers are not allowed to work from 7 PM to 5 AM, so the devices limit the speed to 20 km per hour, so that the vehicle could get to the parking area.
LafargeHolcim dispatchers monitor employee activity in real time using the Wialon platform. The system processes the received data and displays it in a clear and convenient form.
