Facilities and Fleet Department - Telematics, A Vehicle Fleet Management Tool Surveillance Use Policy (September 2018)

Telematics is a technology used for sending, receiving, and storing information related to remote objects, like vehicles. It supports improved management, maintenance, and repair, thus making the use of County Fleet vehicles more efficient and safer than vehicles without this technology. More specifically, Telematics provides information that meets the State of California's smog requirements, thus eliminating having to perform biannual checks on Fleet vehicles; monitors engine performance; and sends real-time vehicle-computer trouble-codes and vehicle information to Fleet Management.
