Keeping track of drivers in real-time

Masternaut has launched the world’s first fully portable vehicle tracker for driver working hour monitoring via the Internet. Designed to help ensure drivers comply with the new Working Time Directive (WTD), the device automatically tracks movements and records working time hours in real time on the Web.

The fully portable satellite tracking device tracks truck and van drivers who regularly move from one vehicle to another. Linking to Masternaut’s HourTrak service, driver movements and working status are sent instantly via the Web to provide a complete log of activities. E-mailed time sheets provide accurate records of hours worked and as well as providing Working Time records, the system also provides automatically validated information for payroll and proof of work.

Drivers can carry the device freely from one vehicle to another and their movements are then tracked automatically via the Internet. With this live tracking, drivers do not need to be called on their mobile phones to find out where they are.

The system was first developed for the driver hire industry where personnel drive different vehicles for any number of transport operators.
