Accurate Data
Further enhance your Maintenance Program with a direct connection to the vehicle data-bus. Sentinel FM allows for communicaiton with OBDII and JBUS compatible Engine Diagnostic systems, transmitting real-time data from the vehicle.

  • Accurate fuel consumption with our patented methods
  • Precise odometer readings
  • Engine hours
  • Diagnostic Trouble Codes
Driver Performance
Minimize your exposure to risk while improving fuel efficiency with good driver performance.

Good driving behaviour such as driving slower and less aggressively can save on a vehicles’ gas usage by up to 30%. Also, reducing your idle time can significantly improve your fleet’s fuel efficiency.

  • Receive real-time alerts for speeding, harsh acceleration and braking, and more
  • View and compare fleet, vehicle, and driver performance with our violations’ reports
  • Reward good driving behaviour and identify drivers that require additional training
Speed & Idle Alerts

Receive real-time alerts for almost any condition including speeding, idling, geozones and take immediate action to improve the safety, operational efficiency, and bottom line of your fleet.

Speeding: Speeding is always a top safety concern and also affects your fleet’s fuel economy.

Idling: highlight which vehicles have the highest idling times. Distinguish between good and bad idling; use your fuel for what it’s supposed to be used for!

One hour of idling time = 1 gallon of fuel & 80 miles of engine wear
The Idling reports allow the user to identify the total vehicle usage during the selected period, and highlight the total Idling time, Idling fuel, PTO time and PTO fuel used. This is an easy way to visualise ‘good’ idling versus ‘bad’ idling, and quantify fuel and time wasted.
Actionable Reports
Fuel Fraud
Sentinel FM has the unique ability to integrate with fuel card systems and can indicate all the collected parameters of the event. View full reports on your fuel transactions with detailed information.

Track your fuel transactions and ensure gas is pumped into the assigned vehicle and eliminate fuel theft with real time alerts. Key data collected includes: vehicle identifier(s), location of fuel transaction, status of fuel transaction, and distance delta (between actual vehicle location and fuelling station).
