Sensus AutoVUĀ® Software

Overview Industries & Applications Documentation & Tools


AutoVU® software enhances vehicle-based radio reading with graphic on-screen mapping for Sensus FlexNet® drive-by solutions. You can set meter locations along a route to change color or disappear from view as each meter is successfully read. Instant on-screen reading verification minimizes the need to re-drive a route to obtain missed readings.

AutoVU is GPS-based for precise location and mapping. Maps automatically reposition as the vehicle moves along, reducing meter reading time and associated costs. To further orient the driver and provide more context, you can also include map layers in the display, such as street layouts and names or water system routes.
