Idle Report

Idle reports help you identify and correct problems with driver behaviour, resulting in better fuel efficiency and reduced engine wear and tear. The report lists the vehicles that have stopped (or idled) for over 5 minutes, with the ignition on. 

To access an Idle Report click on the Report button on the main navigation bar at the top of the screen. 

Overview Report

  • The Overview Report lists the vehicles that have stopped (or idled) for greater than 5 minutes, with the ignition on.
  • All idling where a vehicle has stopped with the ignition on for less than 5 minutes, will not be displayed in the report.
  • The Idle Report does not contain information for today.
  • Vehicles are sorted by the number of idling events, represented by coloured bars. The bar is colour coded to distinguish the different lengths of time that a vehicle has been idle.
  • The Key to the colour coding is shown in the right hand corner of the screen.
  • Total time spent idling can be shown by clicking the "By Total Time" button.
  • If your organisation has the EROAD Driver ID module in vehicles you will have the option of viewing the idle report by driver as well as by vehicle.
  • To see details of idling events, click on the bar for a vehicle and the Vehicle Detail view will display. 
  • To change the timeframe of the report,select a different timeframe from the date drop-down box, or choose the Date Range option.
