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.
Some say that the engine is a heart of a vehicle, while the driver keeps the heart beating. Driving style is what mostly impacts safety and needs to be strictly controlled.
Powerful analytics offered by iDriveSafe allows for driver behaviour assessment based on three main recorded parameters:
- Harsh braking
- Hard acceleration
- Sharp turns
The app leaves a margin for the manager setting up assessment strictness and creating assessment model based on vehicle type.
Driving quality is assessed on the basis of three main parameters:
- Acceleration rate,
- Deceleration rate,
- Cornering accuracy.
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 analysed, 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 colour 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 colour). 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.
