If you are a CalAmp Vision customer, you can configure how your drivers' scores are calculated based on certain camera events. You assign different percentage reduction values to each infraction, as follows:

Note: For more information about CalAmp Vision, go to What Can You Expect with CalAmp Vision?. For details about how the driver scoring feature works, check out An Introduction to Driver Scoring.

  1. In the Group Chooser, select the highest-level group you want your scoring configuration to apply to. (See Choosing a Group to View Globally for details on how to change your chosen group.)
    The score percentages will be inherited by all the groups below the one you pick.
    Caution: DO NOT specify the top-level group you are assigned to. You can't make group changes to your assigned group, and driver scores are treated in the CalAmp application as group properties. You'll need to select a lower-level group before you'll be able to edit the driver infraction weights.
  2. In the sidebar menu on the left, click .
  3. Click Driver Scoring on the flyout menu that appears.
    The Admin - Driver Scoring screen will appear and list the safety violations that lower a driver's score.
    Note: Go to An Introduction to Driver Scoring for an explanation of what the standard infractions mean at the top of the list.

    Note: If you don't see the Edit option at the top right of the screen, you may have the top-level group you are assigned to selected in the Group Chooser. You won't be able to make changes at that level (refer to step 1's Caution). If the fields are already in the editable state because your organization opted to have the Vision infractions automatically selected, you won't need to see Edit at the top.
  4. If needed, scroll down to the lower half of the screen and select the check box to the left of "Categories Based on CalAmp Vision Camera." ( means selected, and  deselected.)
    The percentage values will become editable fields.
    If you have only the Vision cameras on your assets — and not an LMU (location messaging unit) as well — only the second half of the infractions will apply to your drivers. If you have both LMUs and cameras, you will need to balance all the types of violations in your scoring.
    These are the violations that lower a driver's score when they are detected by the Vision camera:
    • Collision Warning: The vehicle has likely been involved in an accident, such as a front collision, or the driver's actions may soon result in a crash, such as tailgating.
    • Distracted Driving: The driver has exhibited one or more of several behaviors that indicate they aren't focused on the road, such as drinking, smoking, using a cell phone, appearing drowsy, or simply looking way from the road.
      Caution: The following three infractions (Traffic Violation, Lane Drift, and Lane Departure) aren't currently functional. Their use is planned as a future feature. You can include them in your weight scoring now, if you choose (so that they're good to go when they are supported), but they won't return results yet.
    • Traffic Violation: The driver has driven over the speed limit or didn't stop for a Stop sign.
    • Lane Drift: The driver has started to drift the vehicle out of its lane.
    • Lane Departure: The driver has allowed the vehicle to move out of its lane and into another. This is an abrupt change, unlike Lane Drift, which is gradual.
  5. Select the first safety violation percentage you want to modify and type your new value over it.
    The "100/100" total below the numbers will reflect the new sum (such as "105/100") and will become red to remind you that the values no longer add up to 100.
  6. Select a second violation percentage and update its value.
  7. Repeat step 6 until you have made all the changes you need.
    Caution: Make sure that your final total percentages equal 100/100! If they don't, you won't be able to save your changes.
  8. Click Update.
    A success message will appear at the bottom of the screen.
  9. Click OK to dismiss it. (Or you can wait a few seconds, and it will automatically close.)
