Pitstop announced a partnership with Samsara, which will allow customers to access real-time data and insights from Samsara within Pitstop’s predictive analytics platform to reduce emissions and maintenance costs.
Pitstop’s predictive analytics platform analyzes sensor data and diagnostic trouble codes of specific components such as batteries, brakes, and more across fleets of any size. It utilizes proprietary algorithms, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to detect anomalies and predict potential vehicle failures weeks in advance.
Additionally, users will be able to optimize for reduced diesel emissions and driver habits through Pitstop’s analytics dashboards, saving fleets up to $2000 per vehicle each year, Pitstop officials said in a press release. The data made available to fleet managers will empower informed decision making, allowing the customer to sync with the repair center to improve efficiency of each service visit.
“Instead of relying on manufacturer recommendations on when to perform maintenance on their fleets, fleet managers will be able to understand exactly what every vehicle needs in real-time,” said Shiva Bhardwaj, founder and CEO of Pitstop. “This data will reduce maintenance costs and expand productivity for fleets of every size.”
Pitstop’s solution works with all vehicle types, including electric.
The data analyzes the current fleet usage (internal combustion engine vehicles) and will provide economic information and analytics to suggest which assets can be converted to battery-electric vehicles so fleet managers can begin building out their EV fleets without disrupting the operational flow.
Pitstop’s partnership with Samara can enable fleet managers to lower the amount of existing petrol-powered vehicle emissions by up to 28%, according to the company. Using the platform, fleet managers can also measure everything from the cost of downtime to overall ROI.
“At Samsara, we’re committed to giving our customers the real-time data and visibility they need to operate more efficiently, safely, and sustainably,” said Blair Rasnick, ecosystem partner manager at Samsara. “By integrating with Pitstop, we’re able to provide vehicle diagnostic data and preventative insights that can ultimately enable streamlined maintenance, reduced downtime, and more.”
Pitstop is now available on the Samsara App Marketplace, where customers can connect their most important applications to Samsara and streamline data sharing.
