SpeedGauge Awarded Patent

SAN FRANCISCO, October 28, 2015 - SpeedGauge, Inc. announces that it has been granted a United States patent for a pioneering technology related to GPS data accuracy and quality verification. The patent #9,163,948 Position Accuracy Testing System, is born out of SpeedGauge’s technical and business partnerships with leading telematics service providers (TSPs) across the globe. It demonstrates SpeedGauge’s commitment to improving service levels and operational performance for its partners.

Effective driver behavior monitoring requires accurate data in order to evaluate drivers, vehicles  and equipment. SpeedGauge’s newly patented technology allows GPS providers to test and monitor the positional accuracy of deployed telematics devices and benchmark their performance in real-world operating conditions - without interrupting operations or requiring a service call. Companies using SpeedGauge’s testing system will not be required to rely on stationary calibration units. Instead, users will track accuracy of moving GPS units relative to known road networks while equipment is operationally deployed.

"SpeedGauge’s testing capabilities reduce post-installation service requirements, costs and equipment downtime. Using SpeedGauge, TSPs can assure their fleet customers that their infield devices are performing accurately and effectively", said Chris Kantarjiev, Ph.D., chief technology officer at SpeedGauge. "We support our partners with technical and business solutions to real operational challenges. Awarding this patent to SpeedGauge demonstrates our innovative approach to performance evaluation where it matters most - on the road."
