Accident Detection

The response triggered when the device registers a possible accident via an extensive shock (g-force).

False alarms may include the vehicle going through a pothole or uneven surfaces at a certain speed.
 


Active Duration 

The duration in which the vehicle is turned on and being driven. 


Connection 

Refers to the connection from server to device, for vehicle control functions

Green: Connected

Red: No  


Coverage 

The geographical area covered by our network and internet service provider (ISP).


Dashboard

A menu to view the information records of vehicles (e.g., distance travelled, top speed, etc.) and violation reports. 



Device Low Power 


Indication that the vehicle battery voltage level is low.

By default, if the device detects 11.5 V or below - a response will be triggered.



Device Power Off  


 An indication that the vehicle is out of battery (backup battery in the device is no longer powered as well). 



Distance 


Distance determines how far the vehicle has travelled from one point to another.



Fast Acceleration 


An increase in speed over a short period of time. The impact of this event would have caused the driver to be thrown back into their seat.

A violation is triggered when the vehicle goes beyond 1.5g within 1.5 seconds.
 



G


Measurement of G-Force. 



G-Force


G-Force (Gravitational Force measured as "g") is the measure of acceleration. This is what keeps our feet firmly planted on the ground - 1g is what we feel due to the force of gravity. Gravity is measured in metres per second squared (m/s2).

The value for g that is used across all OmniFleet configurations is 9.81m/s2.
 



Geofence 


Draw virtual boundaries over a real geographical area by GPS technology. Each time a vehicle enters and exits these boundaries, a response is triggered. 



GPS 


Global Positioning System, commonly known as GPS, is a global satellite navigation system made up of 31 satellites (as of 20 Feb 2020).

The satellites transmits data (position and time) at regular intervals. The GPS receiver (in this case, the telematics device) intercepts the data and calculates how long it took for the data to arrive and through a process called trilateration, the GPS receiver is able to pinpoint the location.
 



GPS Precision 


Determines the accuracy of the GPS location. GPS location is measured with HDOP

Good (Green) - 2.0 or less
Okay (Orange) - greater than 2.0, less than or equal to 4.0
Bad (Red) - greater than 4.0
 



Hard Braking 


A sudden deceleration in speed over a short period of time (sudden brake). The impact of this event would have caused the driver to be thrown forward onto their steering wheel.

A violation is triggered when the vehicle goes beyond 1.5g within 1.5 seconds
.



HDOP


Horizontal Dilution of Precision is a measure of the geometric quality of a GPS satellite configuration. The smaller the number of the HDOP, the higher the accuracy. 



Idle


The status of the vehicle when the engine is On but is still stationary.

A violation is triggered when the vehicle is idle for more than 15 minutes.
 



Immobiliser 


A safety feature which prevents the car from starting to avoid car theft. Our immobiliser doesn't stop the car immediately (due to safety issues) instead it prevents the car from being switched on upon the next attempt of switching on the engine.


Long Drive 


Can also be considered as fatigue driving due to long driving hours.

A violation is triggered when the vehicle engine is on for more than 8 hours with only a 75-minute break.
 



Mileage


Distance travelled



Network


The network consists of multiple devices that are connected to one another and allows data sharing. For example, the internet.



No Warmup


To maintain a vehicle's engine longevity, it is recommended to warm up the engine before driving especially in cold weather. This is done by letting the engine run for a few minutes before driving.

A violation is triggered when the vehicle starts moving before 150 seconds upon starting the vehicle after 7.5 hours.



Notifications


Be informed on actions that trigger responses to the platform.



Odometer


A close indicator of the vehicle's odometer (an instrument for measuring the distance travelled by a vehicle) - this includes the margin of error by 5 - 10 %.



Over Speed


The vehicle exceeding the set speed limit.

A violation is triggered when the vehicle speed exceeds 110 km/h.
 



Relay


Relay are switches that open and close circuit electromechanically.



Reports


A summary of organised data within a specific amount of time, for a specific vehicle that can be downloaded into a readable format.



Rough Driving


When the car is turning at a certain high speed, or with spikes of fast acceleration or hard braking.

A violation is triggered when the vehicle's turn goes beyond 0.5g within 0.5 seconds.



RPM


RPM stands for revolutions per minute which is a measure of how fast an engine is rotating.

A violation is triggered when the vehicle goes above 5000r/min.



Telematics


Method of monitoring a vehicle by utilising the collected transmission of computerised data.



Trilateration


Measures distances (using the geometry of circles or triangles) to pinpoint the exact position of the device on Earth.



Trips



When a vehicle is driven from one location to another and its engine is switched off, the journey is recorded as a trip.

A trip is created when the vehicle engine is on for more than 3 minutes.
 



Vehicle Score


The score of the vehicle is based on the driving pattern. The lower the score percentage, the more aggressive it is being driven.



Violations


Driving habits and occurrences that fail to comply with good driving behaviour.
