This article describes the various features of the Tracking screen, which is the default screen that appears when you open the iOn site. You also can access this screen by clicking  >> Tracking. On the Tracking screen, you can locate and track your fleet's assets on a map and see various types of data about its current status. You also can view a history of events reported by your vehicles to iOn.

Note: For information about the banner at the top and accordion menu on the left (which you open by clicking ), see Navigating the iOn Site.

There are four main areas of the Tracking screen, each of which provides different means for accessing data about your assets, as follows: 

  • Tracking Options toolbar: Along the left side of the screen is a toolbar that offers these options: 
    •  Group/asset selector: Enables you to select certain groups or assets to view on the map and assets grid, locating their current positions and tracking their movement in real time.
    •  Current Assets: Opens the same selection tree as the group/asset selector (for tracking the current activity of your assets). (See Tracking a Group or Asset.)
    •  Asset History: Enables you to view a history of events reported by groups or assets over a time range you specify. (See Mapping a History of Events for a Group or Asset.)
      Caution: There is a limit to how much data can be included when mapping asset history: The number of assets multiplied by the number of days can't exceed 40.
    •  View Map Only: Hides the assets grid, giving the map more screen real estate. Click this icon a second time to return to displaying both the map and grid.
    •  View Grid Only: Hides the map so that the grid data can have more space onscreen. You can click this icon again to go back to showing both the map and grid.
    •  Hide/Show Details View: Toggles on and off the display of the Asset Details pane.
  • Map: iOn displays your assets' locations and your organization's landmarks on Esri maps, which are built using ArcGIS, a geographic information system that enables users to incorporate various types of data on their maps and display them on any Internet-capable device. See Navigating the Tracking Screen's Map for more information about the map's options.
  • Assets grid: The grid beneath the map provides detailed information about the selected group's assets, including where and when each asset's LMU last reported to iOn, what event was triggered, the odometer value, and the total number of engine hours the vehicle has run. For a detailed description of the column headers, go to Tracking a Group or Asset. To see how to customize the grid, including adding and removing columns and rearranging the current ones, check out Customizing the Grid Layout. To sort and filter the grid columns, follow the steps in Sorting and Filtering Column Data. 
  • Asset Details pane: When you select an asset in the grid, the Asset Details pane will appear on the right. It offers all kinds of information about the asset, on these panels:
    Note: The available panels depend on the modules you have, but all customers will have the first four described below.
    • Current Status: Displays the most recent data iOn received about the selected asset, including its current activity (such as Parked or Moving); where and when it reported; its satellite and cellular coverage during that last report; and its engine hours, odometer value, fuel level, and battery voltage.
    • Utilization: Charts how the asset has been used over the chosen time range (today, the past week, or the past month), including the number of hours it has had a status of Moving, Idle, and Engine On; its current odometer value; and the average time of day it began its activity.
    • Engine Diagnostics: Lists any fault codes reported by the asset, plus when its LMU last reported to iOn. Fault codes, or diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), are analytic codes sent across the vehicle diagnostic bus when a problem occurs in the engine.
    • Additional Info: Shows the asset's properties, including its name, description, and asset type (such as Vehicle); when its LMU was installed; its license plate number; its year, make, and model; its VIN; what kind of device it has (such as an LMU-3030); and the device's ESN.
    • Your Asset Details pane might also include these panels, depending on the specified modules your organization has:
    • iOn Tags: Included if you have the Tools on a Truck module, this shows a list of equipment you have placed iOn tags on. The icon for an individual tag will be green if it is close to the asset's LMU and red if it isn't (which categorizes it as Missing). The Associated/Visible toggle allows you to display all the tags that have been assigned (associated) to the asset or only ones that the asset's device is in proximity to. (See Employing iOn Tags for details on what the tags are and how to assign them to assets.)
    • Driver Scorecard: Included if you have the Driver Scorecard add-on, this charts the asset's assigned operator's driving statistics, including how many miles they've driven over the past month; what percentage of those miles were on the highway or late at night; and how many speeding, hard braking, and hard acceleration events they're responsible for.
    • Sensor Info: Included if you have customer PEG scripts on the devices, this lists the entered sensors and their current values (such as Tire_Pressure: 35 PSI).

Note: Tracking a Group or Asset shows more specifics about the Asset Details pane (see the section "The Asset Details Pane").
