Clickdrive.io fleet tracking using CrateDB
Clickdrive, an internet-enabled onboard vehicle monitoring solution, uses CrateDB to enable storage and analysis of up to 2,000 data points per second, per car. Leveraging a unique combination of precision telematics and predictive maintenance capabilities, Clickdrive can predict a breakdown before it happens – helping operators improve the safety, efficiency, and economy of their commercial fleets.
For example, within three months of use, one Clickdrive customer was able to identify issues in 50% of the vehicles that were on the road – issues that were otherwise unknown to the drivers and mechanics. In predicting these issues, not only is safety improved, but maintenance costs were lowered by as much as 20% – placing less pressure on mechanics and maintenance facilities, while dramatically reducing unnecessary use of replacement parts and other consumables.
The devices monitor everything from the condition of the vehicle, to the engine, and the critical subsystems. The result of which is an unbelievable torrent of data.
Using CrateDB as part of their IoT stack has enabled Clickdrive to ingest and analyze vehicle data from large vehicle fleets in real-time, without the costs associated with alternative database offerings.
