In the Advance tab of the unit’s options, the trip detector is configured in the Units. Trip detector is used to detect movement intervals like trips and idling (stops).

  • Movement Detection

Flotilla IOT provided two main methods to detect movement:

GPS speed: It can be applied to any device type and configuration.

Engine ignition sensor: It is used for the units that have ignition sensor.

Detection of Movement States

Minimal No Data Duration (Seconds): It is the minimum no data duration for ending a trip. For example, if the minimal no data duration is set 10 minutes, the trip would end if the device does not send any data for more than 10 minutes.

Minimal Parking/ Idling Duration (Seconds): Set the minimal parking duration (seconds) which is the time for which unit must be motionless to consider the parking and idling condition. For example, consider the case where minimal parking/idling duration is set for 5 minutes. It means that when the car is stopped for more than 5 minutes and its engine is ON, it is in idling state. Similarly, if the car is stopped for more than 5 minutes and its engine is OFF, it is in parking state.  

Minimal Trip Duration (Seconds): Set the minimal trip duration in seconds which is the minimum time limit of travelling after which the trip is detected. User can set the minimum trip duration (Seconds) at low values for detecting short-lived movements as trips. On the contrary, you can set minimum trip duration (Seconds) at a high value for detecting considerable time span as trips.

Minimal Trip Distance (Meter): It indicates the minimum distance after which trip is detected. It is advisable no to set distance too small as any slight movement of the unit would be considered as a trip.

Speed Threshold (km/h): Set the speed threshold in km/h of a unit which is the lower speed limit after which the movement is detected as a trip.
