An event is an action recorded by the in vehicle device that reflects a change in the activity of a vehicle. Events are recorded from midnight to midnight. Events that occurred before midnight are grayed out.
To view events, go to the Activity link > Vehicle tab. When you click on a specific vehicle, the map zooms in and from the Activity tab, located below the map, a list events that occurred within the last 24 hours is displayed for that vehicle.
Daily Activity includes all of the below information but also shows a clear picture of how events are grouped between ignition on and off events including the time and distance. You can easily see where the truck travelled, when it arrived at a customer or in its home yard, and change the trip weight configuration as the load changes due to drop offs.
See information regarding Harsh Braking and Acceleration events in the Driver Safety Report.
|Time||The exact time that the event began.|
|Date||The day the event occurred|
|Speed||If applicable, the vehicle speed during the event.|
|Distance||If applicable, the distance the vehicle travelled during the event.|
|Reading||the GPS reading at the start of the event.|
|Stop time||The amount of time the vehicle was stopped before the ignition on event occurred.|
|Location||The actual location where the event occurred.|
Records the last known state that the ignition was on. If the symbol is grayed out, the unit has not reported in within the last 24 hours but the last reading was ignition off.
|Driver logged in||Driver logged into the vehicle device. The icon is grayed out when the driver logs out.|
|Vehicle stopped||Vehicle ignition is on but the vehicle is stationary.||
|Vehicle heading||Vehicle ignition is on and is heading in the direction of the arrow.|
Records the vehicle activity at the current point in time (e.g., turning, moving, stopped). Turning is triggered when the vehicle changes direction by 15 degrees or more.
Ignition is on and the vehicle is stationary for a period of five (5) consecutive minutes or more. The time recorded is the end of the idle event - when the vehicle started moving again.
Your vehicle may be wired one of two ways - 1) the ignition in the ON position, or 2) true idle - ignition is on and engine is running. True idle refers to idle events that occur only while the engine is actually running.
Recorded for an automatic Driving event captured by the ELD. This event must be captured every 60 minutes (1 hour) unless the driver changes duty status away from Driving. There are NO intermediate recordings created when in personal use (personal conveyance) mode. There are intermediate recordings for yard move, as it is still considered to be on-duty.
|BOL||A Bill of Lading entry for the trip.|
|Fuel entry||A fuel entry added for the trip|
|Geofence entry||Entry into a geofence area.|
|Geofence exit||Exit from a geofence area.|
A degraded event where the Ehubo is sending partial data from a vehicle (distance) but cannot resolve and submit all information. An example where this occurs is if a vehicle is being towed. These events are important to note in your records if you are using Depot to generate your Weight-Mileage report.
|Information||An activity of interest has occurred (i.e., external power removed or applied).|
|Shared Vehicle||Vehicle is owned by another organization buy they are sharing information about that vehicle with your organization (either, current location only, or current location and activity history). Icon is visible next to the vehicle name.|
|Configuration change||A truck weight configuration occurred here.|
|Vehicle Stopped||Vehicle ignition is off and the vehicle is stationary.|
|Ignition off||Records the last known state that the ignition was off. If the symbol is grayed out, the unit has not reported in within the last 24 hours but the last reading was ignition off.|
Harsh Braking Event
A harsh braking event is possible when a vehicle is traveling at least 20 km/h (12.43 mph). If a reduction in GPS speed of 8.7 mph occurs within a one second interval, a Harsh Braking event is triggered which is visible in the Event Log.
Harsh Acceleration Event
An event is created when a vehicle accelerates faster than 7.5 mph. This is considered hazardous based on international benchmarks and user-based insurance product research.
