Efficient and Safe Driving

Make Public Transport Even More
Environmentally-Sound And Efficient.

Making public transport even more environmentally-friendly is all in the hands of the drivers – or is it? With the right approach and method operators can further improve the efficiency of their fleets with the help of their drivers and SWARCO's efficient and safe driving solution.

For the companies operating vehicle fleets, the optimization of resources and improvement of the service lies mainly in the performance of their main productive resource, the DRIVER. Implementing a management system involving all the organization areas under the direction leadership is key for a continuous improvement of the performance and commitment of drivers, providing a more efficient and safer operation, committed to the environment and the quality of the service.

We Utilize Blended Learning
for Efficient Driving

What is Bled?

BLED® (Blended Learning for Efficient Driving) is an innovative methodology supported by the IoT and data processing solution developed by ADN Mobile Solutions. It has been developed to improve efficiency and safety of bus fleets with a focus on the driver level.

It is based on a Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle and is specifically designed for bus fleets.

BLED® enables objective context-based indicators of the evolution of driving efficiency, plans and integrates the training and promotes motivation and incentive actions while providing benefits for each specific area and the whole company stakeholders: fuel savings, lower carbon footprint, loss reduction, lower insurance fees, reduced maintenance costs of the fleet. And on top of that, enables implementation of recognized management systems oriented to energy efficiency.

What is Bled trying to solve?

A bus fleet's efficiency is heavily dependent on the driver’s performance. Due to heterogeneous driving conditions comparing drivers is often like comparing apples with oranges – with consequences. On the one hand, raw data comparison provides very little real insight into driver’s performance. Drivers consider the comparison unfair and as a result the resistance against any change grows. Bled solve these issues.

How does Bled work?

filter_1
Seemless operation with fleet management on-board hardware (Optionally: dedicated hardware as option).
filter_2
Data on driving conditions (route, traffic load, weather, etc.) retrieved.
filter_3
Data normalised by central system (comparable conditions identified).
filter_4
Drivers’ performances compared only where comparable conditions exist (fair assessment).
filter_5
Measures implemented based on fair assessment:
Real-time performance information for drivers, collective and individual trainings, higher driver motivation
