The new Eco Driving app

Having taken into account the results of usage of our iDriveSafe application during the past year and a half, as well as recommendations for its improvement, we are pleased to present brand new capabilities to help analyze driver behavior in Wialon. Our Partners will now be able to perform more precise assessment of how drivers operate company vehicles. Wialon is now ready to provide actionable intelligence to help improve fleet safety, save on fleet maintenance, reduce fuel costs and enhance cargo safety.

Eco Driving

Our original iDriveSafe application used only GPS positional data and didn’t have configuration tools to build a comprehensive and flexible driving quality assessment model, neither did it have the capabilities to leverage data from hardware accelerometers. That is what’s possible now with new Eco Driving functionality.

The assessment model depends on the violation criteria and coefficients that can be set for each vehicle individually. It uses penalty points, which, along with other criteria, can be set up in the Eco Driving tab of the unit properties. Each violation adds penalty points, which fleet managers should try to minimize. Penalty points are calculated for each Trip, and can then be summed up or averaged out according to time or distance travelled.

The new Eco Driving app provides a detailed presentation of driving quality of each vehicle in your fleet in a beautiful visual format. Bars in the upper section of the app interface represent individual Trips taken during the time period selected by user. The height of bars are representative of driving quality. Clicking any of those bars refreshes the bottom section of the interface with the details on violations and produces the track on the map, which reflects specific points where those violations took place.

Please try our new Eco Driving capabilities and share with us your thoughts on our forum.
