iDriveSafe is an application designed to receive driving quality assessment. The driving quality influences both the condition of a transported cargo and to a certain degree a vehicle state.
In order to receive data, it is necessary to possess ‘Query messages or reports’ right towards units.
In order any changes to settings such as changes to a vehicle type and assessment to be saved for a unit, it is necessary to possess ‘Edit not mentioned properties’ right towards a unit. Otherwise, all the changes available during a session will be lost (changed to default ones) after refreshing a page.
There are several elements in the application interface: top panel, statistics table (takes central place), work list (to the left of statistics table), switching between tabs (bottom).
Time interval for which you would like to receive an assessment should be indicated in the top panel. There are two variants available: established (‘Yesterday’, ‘Today’, ‘Week’, ‘Month’) and adjustable interval (‘Custom’) where any dates could be set. Clicking ‘Previous’/’Next’ arrows the established interval is changed back or forth for a day, week, or month, correspondingly.
Also, the minimum trip mileage can be set as a filter (in the top panel) in order to exclude minor trips.
Double-click units in the work list in order to choose them. They are added to statistics table where the assessment is automatically made. The following data is shown in the table: driving quality assessment, trip duration, mileage, and the settings (vehicle type, assessment strictness).
Driving quality is assessed on the basis of three main parameters:
Depending on a vehicle type and assessment strictness, different coefficients of driving evaluation are applied. The coefficients have been estimated empirically. Trips of different vehicles for the certain period of time were analyzed, and as a result the recommended values for acceleration, deceleration and cornering have been received.
Chosen coefficients differ depending on a vehicle and assessment type. Therefore, corresponding settings should be indicated for each unit individually. There are four types of vehicles (‘Car’, ‘Van’, ‘Bus’, ‘Truck’) and three types of assessment strictness (‘Loyal’, ‘Normal’, ‘Strict’).
After the evaluation is made and the driving quality assessment received there is a possibility to go into details of the assessment by clicking a unit's line in statistics table. After clicking it, you can see the following interface: trips are at the top of the screen, the map is a bit below, the violations table is to the left of the map.
Trips are displayed as columns. The width of the column is a ratio of a time spent in trip to the time of all the trips of a chosen interval. The height of the column is the assessment mark (with a scale from 0 to 5).
Click on a trip column in order its track to be displayed on the map. The color of a track depends on the unit speed (in the bottom left corner of the map there is a scale which indicates a speed and its color). Violations are shown by markers on a track.
The list of violations made in a trip is shown on the left. Click a violation marker on the map in order a corresponding line from the list to be highlighted.
