Do you find the need to control which driver is driving each vehicle? Frotcom’s Automatic Driver Identification is your choice.
You get a police ticket for over speeding. The vehicle is clearly identified and you use Frotcom’s records to confirm that, indeed, that vehicle was over speeding at the place and time reported by the police. You need to have a word with the driver. The problem is, that vehicle is used by various drivers. You cannot spot who the driver at that particular time was.
Situations like this are quite common, specially with companies where the optimization of the fleet and personnel require frequent driver reassignment.
If you want to always keep track of which driver was assigned to a trip, then Frotcom’s Automatic Driver Identification is your solution.
The following is a list of typical benefits you have when using automatic driver identification:
- Keep track of driver assignments

Frotcom’s Automatic Driver Identification is designed for companies where a dynamic assignment of drivers to vehicles make it difficult to manually record who was driving what, in a certain moment in the past.
How it works
|Frotcom's RFR-1 is an RFID based system (radio-frequency identification). An RFID reader, attached to the Frotcom GPS/GPRS device, reads the code contained in the Identification Card attributed to each driver. Each card has a unique code. The code is finally sent to the Frotcom Data Center, automatically reassigning the driver to this specific vehicle.
Frotcom records exactly which driver executed each trip.
The module is composed of an RFID reader and a buzzer. They are installed on the dashboard of the vehicle and connected to the Frotcom GPS/GPRS device.
Each driver will be given an RFID card (the size of a credit card). The driver will hold the card close to the RFID receiver, to be identified, prior to starting a new trip.
A beep will sound and the identification of the driver will be sent via GPRS to the Frotcom Data Center. If the driver does not identify himself or herself with this method, a loud buzzer will sound in the vehicle for a predefined period of time or until proper identification takes place. The goal is to avoid starting a trip without providing the identification. Optionally, an alarm will be sent out to the fleet manager, by email or SMS.
