Fleet monitoring tech taken for a test-drive

Driver Becky Kirvan-Rodgers will be using APD’s Artemis fleet management product during the upcoming Rally Yorkshire.

According to the company, the solution monitors specific areas of driver behaviour, including speed, braking and cornering, via the collection of “complex vehicle data.” This data is then remotely viewable in real-time using the system’s on-board ‘black box,’ the XDR.

The event takes place at the end of September, near the town of Filey on the Yorkshire coast. Kirvan-Rodgers will be driving her M-Sport 2.0 litre Fiesta ST at speeds of over 90 miles per hour, mainly through forest terrain.

Speaking of the deployment, APD marketing and sales manager Rhiannon Beeson said: “We’re delighted to support Becky as a talented local competitor. This is a really innovative and fun way to put our technology to the test. What better way to do it than in a rally car?”

Kirvan-Rodgers said: “What we learn from testing might just help me to make small but significant changes, for example in my timing of braking at corners. That could give me an edge in the rally. I think APD will learn something from it as well, given that it’s never been tested in motorsport competition before."
