Pitstop Implementation Guide
Pitstop is partnering with Geotab to provide Geotab Customers with a comprehensive maintenance solution including predictive analytics. The intention is to help Customers reduce costs through these analytics allowing them to enhance how they schedule maintenance and find vehicle failures before they occur. Pitstop’s solution was connected to 15 vehicles and here are the highlights of the project:
Pitstop provides fleets with a predictive maintenance tool to analyze their fleet’s health. By building a custom integration into Geotab’s platform to secure relevant data in real-time from the vehicle, Pitstop’s algorithms observe, analyze, detect and communicate issues prior to any symptoms showing in the vehicle. Pitstop came up with specific solutions to help the fleet managers better understand the entirety of the fleet's health. The tools were built through collaboration with fleets and understanding their existing workflow. The goal was to fit into current practices that does not disrupt their current operations.

The following document will overlay how to enable Pitstop to leverage Geotab data for accurate predictive maintenance. It is important to know that Pitstop simply uses the driving data for predictive analytics and driving statistics.

Pitstop’s dashboard is able to showcase the issues, categorized by priority, ranging from critical, major and minor all in one place. The dashboard allows the fleet manager to get a high-level understanding of their fleet’s health, and then dive into the details of each vehicle. The Pitstop Insights include, routine services, recalls, Driver complaints, DTCs, sensor-specific data, and trip statistics. Pitstop’s dashboard is embedded into the Geotab dashboard. Specific reports can also be integrated with existing TPMS software.
With about 100 vehicles in the fleet, it is hard to keep track of exactly how problem-prone one is. However, a vehicle scoring algorithm allows for the fleet manager to see a breakdown of why a vehicle went in for service, and a relative score of the vehicle compared to the fleet.
Pitstop Insights are analytics that utilizes real-time time-series PID data to feed into the Pitstop Dictionary. When the “pattern recognition” detects a pattern in which failure is likely to occur, it sends an alert out to warn the fleet, ensuring they have a temporary replacement vehicle ready. Pitstop currently generates deep insights on how Battery, Air Filter, and Fuel Trim are performing. Brakes, Tires and DEF are currently under testing.
A customized weekly email delivers an overview of fleet health, based on the severity of issue and how many vehicles it is plaguing. The severity is custom to each fleet, to ensure they see only what they want to see. There is a trend analysis on how the fleet health is performing to the previous week/month. The email contains links to the vehicle page on the dashboard, allowing for easy integration between the email and the UI.
