In-cab coaching aids

MiX Telematics is a leading provider of fleet management solutions to many of the world’s top passenger transport companies so we understand how important it is to help deliver the very best service to customers by improving efficiency and passenger comfort.

To do just that, we offer two in-cab coaching aids that assist drivers with improving their driving style and performance.

MiX DriveMate

MiX DriveMate is an ingenious in-vehicle driver display, offered as an extension to the MiX Fleet Manager solution, that alerts drivers to their driving habits through a system of seven LED lights.

If a driver does not self-correct their behaviour, a buzzer sounds to notify them and the associated event will go on to be recorded in MiX Fleet Manager for an authorised person to review.

Not only does MiX DriveMate promote safe and efficient driving while drivers are on the clock, it also affords them the privacy they require when off the clock too.

MiX DriveMate can also be integrated with the MyMiX app to enable drivers to track and monitor their driving performance and scores.


  • Savings across the board. With less speeding, harsh acceleration, braking and cornering comes reduced fuel consumption, vehicle wear and tear, and maintenance costs.
  • Reduction in number and severity of accidents. When drivers practise safer driving techniques, accidents becomes less frequent and severe, leading to saved lives and reduced costs.


The RIBAS in-cab driving display helps drivers to improve their driving style with the use of alerts that are triggered by predetermined events.

Each letter in the RIBAS name correlates with an event:

  • R = Over-revving or ride comfort (aggressive cornering) 
  • I = Excessive idling 
  • B = Harsh braking 
  • A = Harsh acceleration 
  • S = Speeding 

When the abovementioned parameters are exceeded (or not), the RIBAS system uses Red/Amber/Green (RAG) status lights and audible warning tones to give drivers feedback on their driving style. Red represents a driver exceeding a parameter for a certain amount of time, Amber means the driver has almost exceeded the parameter but self-corrected timeously and Green shows that the driver is driving well (in other words, not exceeding parameters). 


The unit can be configured in a number of different ways to provide customers with a choice as to what method has been proven to be most effective for delivering alerts to their drivers. 

MyMiX Integration

The RIBAS system can also be integrated with the MyMiX app to enable drivers to track and monitor their driving performance and scores. 


  • Immediate notification to driver of any errors or transgressions while on the road.
  • Safer, smoother driving.
  • Improved passenger experience.
  • Reduced wear and tear on vehicles, and subsequently reduced maintenance costs.
  • Improved fuel efficiency.
  • Reduced accident severity.
