Fleet management system is a rapid growing industry. This system helps institutions to manage vehicle fleet efficiently and effectively through smart allocation of resources. In this project, an intelligent fleet management system which incorporates the power of concurrent Global Positioning System (GPS) and Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) real-time positioning, front-end intelligent and web-based management software is proposed. In contrast to systems which depend solely on GPS positioning, the proposed system provides higher positioning accuracy and is capable to track the target at areas where GPS signals are weak or unavailable. The terminal is powered by Front-End Intelligent Technology (FEI), a comprehensive embedded technology that is equipped with necessary artificial intelligence to mimic human intelligence in decision-making for quicker response, better accuracy and less dependence on a backend server. With less dependency on the backend, large scale fleet management system can be implemented more effectively. The proposed system is successfully implemented and evaluated on twenty vehicles including buses and cars in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). Results from the test-bed shown that user can monitor and track the real-time physical location and conditions of their vehicles via Internet or Short Message Service (SMS). The web-based fleet management software also helped the user to manage fleets more effectively.
