GO TALK: New Driver Safety Telematics Solution Speaks To Driver Inside Vehicle

Introducing GO TALK driver coaching solution for improving behind-the-wheel decision making.

Our partner Geotab, a leading provider of M2M/IoT fleet telematics technology, has just launched GO TALK — a new driver awareness tool designed to transform driver coaching by providing real-time verbal feedback to fleet drivers.

GO TALK is an add-on module for the Geotab GO7 GPS vehicle tracking device that combines GPS tracking, diagnostic and accelerometer data, as well as other manager programmable data incorporating time of day and location zones to relay instant, spoken instruction and safety information directly to fleet drivers. GO TALK also passes information back to the fleet management center on driver behavior and the effectiveness of responses to the audible coaching.

“GO TALK is another big step forward in coaching fleet drivers and improving driving standards. The solution has driver and road safety at its heart, but fleet managers will also recognize productivity and fuel savings that GO TALK will deliver.”

– Neil Cawse, CEO of Geotab.

With virtually infinite options for event rules that trigger any message to the GO TALK device itself, the new solution offers a wide range of security and safety advantages. Fleet managers can extend the default functionality by adding custom event-triggers into the fleet management control system.

GO TALK can provide driver coaching notifications for events such as:

  • Fastening seatbelt
  • Entering a restricted area
  • Engine idling for too long
  • Exceeding a speed limit set by the safety supervisor
  • Experiencing harsh braking and aggressive acceleration
  • Driving excessive hours
  • Driving outside of State

GO TALK is designed to work with the GO7 fleet telematics device which already records and reports data on safety, driving habits, and health of vehicle information such as seat belt use, engine diagnostics and fuel consumption.

GO TALK will connect to the GO7 device through the IOX add-on interface as an addition to the existing IOX options that include sensor input, Driver ID, connected smart device and other options for running improving business operations.
