New Features


Working Idle at the IO Profile Level


We added a check box to the Add/Edit IO Profile dialog box for each individual input, Working Idle When Input Active. This will work in coordination with the Idle Detail and Idle Summary reports, which include Working Idle Time and Waste Idle Time columns. If the new check box is selected for an input, if that input is engaged, its idle time will be accrued as a Working Idle value, whereas other idle time will be placed under Waste Idle.


Displaying Aliases, Operator Type, and Operator Category on the Tracking Screen


In release 2.18, we added Alias as an asset and operator property you can use as a secondary identifier for information about vehicles, drivers, equipment, and trailers. Now, we’ve added Alias as a grid column option on the Tracking screen, and the alias will appear in an asset’s pop-up window and in its Asset Details pane.


In addition, we added both Operator Type and Operator Category as Tracking column options, and they will be displayed by default in an asset’s pop-up window and in its Asset Details pane.


New Driver Utilization Reports


We added two new reports to the Trip, Stop, Location category: Driver Utilization Summary and Driver Utilization Analytic, which provide in-depth driver activity details, including when the drivers were scheduled to work, when they started and turned off their vehicle, when they entered and exited geofences, stop analytics, distance driven, and idle time. The Summary report provides averages and percentages (such as the average time they first started their vehicle each day over the requested date range).


Handling Key Fob and ID Card Hex Strings


iOn previously couldn’t handle key fobs and ID cards that scanned as 16-character hex strings, but has been updated to accept these as entered. In the Add/Edit Operator dialog box, you’ll now see a Badge Number field; select the Hex toggle before you scan the key fob number into the field. In the Import Operators template, there is now a Badge (Hex) column as well.


Displaying Poor GPS Visually


On the Tracking screen’s map, we added a visual aid to inform you when the data isn’t reliable due to the vehicle not receiving a GPS signal — a red square around the asset in question.


Enhancement


Using Vehicle Bus Data for Speeding Alerts


We previously made vehicle bus data the default method for pulling speed values into iOn. We now have updated the iOn Speed and iOn Speed [PSL] alerts to be triggered by elected VBUS values instead of the GPS speed as well.
