Watch Dog Driver Coach

The watch dog information is gathered from the sensors that each vehicle is equipped with from the factory. Information is gathered during operation in real time, the software then process the information. As the information is processed, it is then used to serve as a Driving Coach guiding the vehicle’s driver to the most efficient, economical driving techniques in order to maximize fuel economy.

The Watchdog becomes a very valuable tool as a Driving Coach. A priority in today’s market place is saving fuel, getting every last tenth of a mile out of the fuel in the tank. The Watchdog features software that tracks the driver’s habits behind the wheel. As these habits show themselves, the software calculates the best remedy and then notifies the driver. As a Driving Coach the Watchdog will recommend and suggest different driving methods to the user in real time as conditions and habits become apparent.

For instance, If the driver of the vehicle is repeatedly waiting until the last minute before applying the brakes before coming to a stop, the software will recognize this and then advise the driver how they can improve their braking method and their fuel mileage.

 With our tools and programs your drivers will learn to enjoy operating safer and more efficiently by learning to:

  • Accelerate smoothly and slowly
  • Reduce idle time
  • Not exceed the speed limit
  • Gently accelerate before hills and lift off throttle just before cresting
  • Coast down hills and slight grades
  • Brake only when necessary and more gradually extending pad life
  • Slow before entering a curve by decelerating or downshifting
  • Anticipate traffic flow and traffic signals
  • Yield the right of way to aggressive drive
