Trip Summary

While in the Trips History view, choosing the Summary button will show you summarized trip information throughout your fleet.

With the graphical summarized trips view, you can compare essential driving data throughout the fleet. By default, the report will show the vehicle who drove the longest distance at the top. A simple to read pie chart shows the the stop times for Customer, Office, Home and Non Customer.

Have the ability to see where your drivers are spending most of their time. Hover over each color in the pie chart to see the durations at different zone types within your fleet.

Hover over the green distance line of each driver to see the percentage of distance compared to the longest distance traveled.

You can visually see the idle time compared to the overall drive time. Not only with durations but percentage as well.

What is a Trip?

A trip is defined as one stop to the next.  Stops can be ignition off events or idle stops where the vehicle is left running but it has not moved for a period of time. If the device in the vehicle can sense that the engine is no longer running (rpm), then Checkmate knows that a trip has ended. In some cases the device could be wired in such that it cannot detect ignition (2 or 3 wire install). If this is the case, the device can sense engine running based on position changes.

If a vehicle does not move for more than 200 seconds with the ignition on, Checkmate will automatically create a trip. This means that if a delivery for example occurs and the vehicle is left idling, then a trip will be created. Short stops less than 200 seconds are not counted as stops if the ignition is not turned off though.

If Checkmate detects the engine is running, and the vehicle is not changing position then this action is defined as idling.

Idling that occurs before a trip starts is included as part of the idling for the previous trip. A trip only starts the first time a vehicle moves. This is done this way because vehicles may at any time be started and not driven and that idling is always recorded with the previous trip total.
