Average speed. The average speed during a device’s report interval, which is calculated using the distance traveled (beginning and ending odometer values) and time (update period).
Represents more than one vehicle in a similar location on a map.
Diagnostic data is an additional feature. Diagnostic data varies by vehicle make/model/year.
GPS drift refers to the magnitude of inaccuracy of a device’s positional data (e.g., the number of meters within Circular Error Probability).
Gravitational force. 1 G is equal to the force of gravity at the Earth’s surface, which is 9.8 meters per second.
Includes place information on a variety of categories, such as: establishments, prominent points of interest, geographic locations, and more.
Used to organize your vehicles using classifications that make sense to your business.
Instantaneous speed. The last speed value sampled during a device’s report interval.
Maximum speed. The highest speed value sampled during a device’s report interval.
Normalization allows you to more accurately compare data among multiple vehicles (drivers), typically related to event violations.
A message that may indicate the vehicle’s GPS device is not reporting data.
A trip (engine on to engine off) that occurs during an overnight/midnight threshold.
The maximum lawful vehicle speed (in multiples of 5 mph) for a particular location as displayed on a regulatory sign.
Power Take-Off. A device used on a vehicle to provide power to an attachment or separate system (hydraulic or mechanical).
Total vehicle hours.
The snap to roads option allows you to alter the representation of the trails. Vehicle locations are typically provided every two minutes.
Many speed limits are 5-10 MPH different in either direction, and the data is not guaranteed.
Each vehicle is typically on a 2-minute report interval. During that time, the device is sampling speeds usually at 4 times per second.
Allows drivers to add information about various stops (e.g., “Customer was not home for delivery.”).
Occurs when two or more consecutive instantaneous speed points are above the speeding threshold.
When setting up an alert with time conditions, the alert uses the timezone preference set in your user profile.
In addition to ignition status, data is tracked for the following: Stopped and/or over idling threshold, out of range, PTO engaged, vehicle speed (max and average speeds between updates) GPS location (lat/long, reverse geo-coded address, and/or landmark if applicable), direction (heading), odometer, and more.
Defined as the period between ignition “on” and ignition “off.”
A 24-hour period (midnight to midnight) based on the timezone setting of the master user on the account.
System identifers that summarize a trip based on Days Utilized, Trips, Idle Time, Distance, and Engine Hours.
