The vehicle infobox is divided into panels. Each panel is a particular arrangement of information grouped. There are nine different panels. One of them is the Elapsed/remaining driving times panel.
This panel has four visualization modes:
- Elapsed driving time
- Remaining driving time
- Regular daily rest period
- Reduced daily rest period
You can select the mode via the Hamburger menu button:
By default, the Remaining driving time will be displayed.
Elapsed driving time mode
When you select the Elapsed driving time option, the panel provides information related to the driver’s driving times. More specifically, it shows you the time that the driver has driven (the red part of the bar) and the time that he/she can still drive till reaching the limits specified (the green part of the bar). It has the following display:
It contains the following information:
|Continuous||The continuous driving without a break (or two breaks) with the necessary duration(s) (defined in driving time restrictions on Administration > Account > Driving Conditions).|
|Daily||The total driving time (in the context of this analysis, a day doesn't start necessarily at 00:00, but when a daily rest period finishes (defined in Administration > Account > Driving Conditions).|
The total driving time in the current week.
|Biweekly||The total driving time in the current week and the week before.|
Indicates if, in the current week, the driver can still drive an extra hour per day. Each clock symbol represents a day that he/she can drive one additional hour. The maximum is two days in a week, with an extra hour of driving on each. So:
If the vehicle has a co-driver, you can see his/her driving times as well, by clicking the corresponding co-driver name. To view the primary driver’s times again, click the driver name.
Additionally, the infobox also provides you with an indication of driving times source, i.e. on the vehicle infobox, you can also see if the driving time is being calculated from tachograph data (TCO) or GPS data (GPS).
|GPS data source||Tachograph (TCO) data source|
On the top of the panel the continuous driving time will be shown (Time spent), so that you still can see that information even if you collapse the driving times panel.
Remaining driving time mode
The remaining driving time mode shows you the indicators which are the inverse of the elapsed driving times. For example: if the continuous driving time is 02:43 hours, for a maximum of 04:30 hours, the displayed information will be 01:47 hours on the continuous field.
On the top of the panel, the maximum time duration until a stop is needed, will be shown:
The Required stop value is the minimum value between the four displayed times (continuous, daily, weekly and biweekly) and a 5th-time constraint: within each period of 24h after the end of the previous daily rest period or weekly rest period a driver shall have taken a new daily rest period.
Regular/Reduced daily rest period
You can also choose to see the driving times based on the Regular daily rest period or Reduced daily rest period:
- Regular daily rest period is any period of rest of at least 11 hours;
- Reduced daily rest period is any period of rest of at least 9 hours and less than 11 hours.
The information you see on the title bar of the section is the time when the regular/reduced daily rest period is reached and how long to reach it, taking into consideration the Minimum reduced daily rest time on Administration > Account > Driving conditions.
The information about the number of reduced daily rest periods between any two weekly rest periods is presented as three marks in the same panel:
In the case above, for instance, the driver has already spent two out of three reduced daily rest periods this week.
