What is a Vehicle Telematics System?
Vehicle telematics systems use Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) technology to transmit information about a vehicle. AVL devices are widely used in the transport industry to record information about vehicle performance that could impact passenger experience and safety.

Transmitted information includes:
  • Time
  • Location
  • Excess speed
  • Heavy braking
  • Sharp cornering
Why is this technology being introduced?
Improved monitoring of the school bus fleet is part of the Ministry of Education’s commitment to health and safety, and ongoing service improvement.
Who has access to this information?
The information can be accessed by:
  • The vehicle operator
  • The Ministry of Education
  • Propellerhead - software partner for the AVL initiative
Approved devices
School bus operators must install an approved device on all vehicles by 1st January 2018. The Ministry of Education has no preferred device supplier, and makes no representation as to the services offered by any of these providers. Operators should do their own due diligence before entering into any commercial arrangement for supply.
