This feature comes along with the latest Mobility Package rules.

Import Routes Schedules - Send to Driver app: You can now use the Import Route Schedules routine, either via the Excel file or the APIv2 endpoint, to send the Routes to a Driver app terminal (in addition to WFM and NAV terminals):

More information about this feature can be found in this article.

Permission to the Apps menu: Up until now, the permission to the Apps menu was manually controlled by a setting in the DB, which would force all the users of a company to have the same permission. With this latest addition, you can now control which companies and users have access to the menu with the new permission General Features > Apps:

Waste Collection Management System: This brand new module of Frotcom Web is an area where you can check, review, and generate reports with information regarding Bin IDs (RFID tags), Bin types and Weight collected from trucks during waste collection operations:

You may check more information regarding this module in this article.

Use traffic information for ETA: As of now, you can use the option Use traffic information to consider the traffic on the road in the calculation of Directions and Nearest vehicles:
mceclip0 (5).png

 

When this option is enabled, traffic information will be considered in direction calculations, thus providing greater assertiveness in ETA calculations.

Improvements in the Coupling information: A few improvements regarding Coupling operations were implemented:
  • You can now see coupling information from operations that happened before the selected period (if available) in the bottom panel;
  • A tooltip with details about the coupled vehicle/asset is available in the Vehicle list;

Daily Summary Report - Show the weekdays: As of now, you can choose how you'd like to see the Weekdays in the Daily Summary Report - as Columns or as Rows in the report:

Maximum Engine Speed available on the Engine Speed Graph: As of now, you can see the Maximum Engine Speed, which is used to trigger Driving Behavior Events, in the Engine Speed Graph:

Both Average Engine Speed and Max Engine Speed can be selected together in the Graph, and you can change the selection to adjust the graph to your needs.

TPMS Graphs (Temperature and Pressure): The new TPMS Graphs (TPMS Temperature and TPMS Pressure) are now available for vehicles with a Tire Pressure Measurement System configured.

These graphs show the evolution of temperature and pressure for all the vehicle tires:

 

mceclip0 (5).png

 

You can interact with the graphs by selecting only the tires you'd like to track from the graphs. Also, you may use the TPMS graph, which combines both Temperature and Pressure into one single graph.

 

You can check this article to learn more about the graphs.

Working day not started alarm: This new alarm allows you to specify the exact hour when the working day should start and, if there are vehicles that didn’t start after that hour, the alarm is triggered to warn you of the situation:

mceclip1 (2).png

 

To create a new instance of this alarm, you should configure the following definitions:

  • Working day expected start: Start of the working day;
  • Ignore activities shorter than: If you opt to use this parameter, the first activity of the day must be kept for X minutes to be considered as the start of the working day;
  • Use TCO driver state: If you select this option, the alarm will control the start of a daily activity based on the TCO driver states (i.e., the states Drive, Work, and Available will trigger the start of the day). Otherwise, the alarm will use the Ignition state instead.

Max. Engine speed (RPM) in the Driving behavior events report: As of now, when you generate a Driving behavior events report, you will see the column Maximum Engine Speed (RPM) available in the report

Also, the columns Value and m/s2 are now combined into one single column (Acceleration m/s2).

Send Routes (Jobs) to Driver app: Up until now, when you assigned a route to a vehicle, you could send it to a WFM or NAV terminal. However, didn't give you the option to send the Route (as a Job) to the Driver app.

With this latest release, you will be able to assign Routes to Vehicles and send them (as Jobs) to the Driver app:

Screenshot 2023-07-28 135018 (2).png

 

In addition to that, the rules applied over which vehicles can receive Jobs have been updated:

  • Driver app: The account must have the permission to use Jobs;
  • WFM app: Each vehicle must have a WFM terminal configured with the version superior to 1.0.1226.7;
  • NAV: Each vehicle must have a NAV terminal configured. If using Enforce Path, it must have the protocol A614; If using Destination only, it must have the protocol A603 or A618.

Trigger delay in seconds for Local Speed alarms: As of now, you can create new Local Speed alarm definitions and configure their Trigger delay in seconds (instead of minutes) in the Time Restrictions section:

TPMS Alarm - Tire numbering scheme update: The current numbering scheme for the TPMS module is based on inspection tires. As this is not a globally known scheme by Drivers and Fleet Managers, we are updating the numbering scheme to be more adequate for the inspections of the tires.

This improvement was made to Frotcom Web and the Driver and Fleet Manager apps (Android and iOS versions).

Adjustments in the Temperature report: A new set of improvements was made to the Temperature report to avoid misunderstandings and display the correct information.

With this version, the exported Excel file now displays the headers according to the generated report.

Battery level for Teltonika BLE EyeSensor/EyeBeacon: In the Vehicles list, for vehicles equipped with Teltonika BLE EyeSensor and EyeBeacon, you can now see the Battery level according to their BLE technology (Temperature, Door sensor, or Trailer ID):

The levels/colors of the battery icons follow the rules below:

Tachograph's One-Minute Rule activated by default: The One-Minute Rule was implemented for all Tachographs sold after October 2011. As this option was Disabled by default, customers could forget to activate it.

With this latest version, the One-Minute Rule is Enabled by default for new vehicles:

mceclip0 (4).png

Optimization of Import Cost Files: Currently, when you Import Cost Files, the operation may fail if there are too many entries in the file. This occurs due to validations done with the Odometer, which makes the operation slower.
To overcome this limitation, you now have the option to Optimize import. If selected, the validations done to the Odometer won't be carried out, making the process faster and avoiding timeouts:

mceclip1 (2).png

Improvements in the Temperature report: A new set of improvements was made to the Temperature report to avoid misunderstandings and display the correct information.
These improvements include:

  • New option: Only vehicle sensors;
  • Split the Place column into two: Place and Address;
  • Selection of the fields to be included in the report.

mceclip1 (1).png

Improvements in the Temperature report: The temperature report was improved to avoid misunderstandings and display the correct information.
These improvements are:

  • The column Ignition was removed from the Report, and the column On Trip is available instead (to avoid misunderstandings);
  • A new option is available in the report's configuration, Reefer engine status, that allows you to select a Digital Input that represents this status;
  • Show the Country and District instead of the Place Name when the latter is unavailable (because the temperature reading is out of Place). If you click on the Country-District, a new window with Google Maps pinned at the correct location will be opened.

Driver ID feature working automatically with Immobilizer: As of now, whenever you try to activate/deactivate the Immobilizer for Teltonika devices for a vehicle in which the Driver ID was configured to be used with Immobilizer, the following warning message is displayed:

"This vehicle is configured to control the immobilizer through the driver identification. Thus, it is not possible to control it remotely.
