The Games Organizing Committee’s (GOC) fleet of vehicles (government-owned and hired) is now tracked and monitored after the successful installation of a positioning system (GPS) by the local group SkyEye.
A GPS tracking system is a cutting-edge technology that offers advanced features such as geofencing, live tracking, speed monitoring, and maintenance scheduling.
Transport Manager James Talotuita highlighted the importance of the tracking system, which gives their team a visual of the movement of the engaged fleet during the game as they have set up a central operation Centre.
He said this service will help their team monitor the movement of assigned drivers and their role in shuttle athletes and officials from game villages to the game’s venues, and vice versa.
“Aim is ensuring athletes and officials arrive on time for their games.
“Other government agencies like police and immigration will also integrate during game time,” Mr. Talotuita said.
The games transport leader said vehicles that will be tracked the most during the games are those assigned to transport athletes and team officials, as time is crucial.
More than 100 private vehicles, such as buses, vans, SUVs, sedans, and other models, were contracted to support GOC for the two-week sporting event.
