New Ehubo 2 feature: Beep Until Login 

 

Ensuring that a driver logs in to the Ehubo 2 device is a health and safety imperative, as it is important for Fleet Managers to know who is driving a vehicle at all times.

Previously, if a driver did not login, the Ehubo 2 would beep the next two times the vehicle stops, then not again, which is very often ignored by the driver. For Health & Safety or Fleet Managers it becomes very difficult to know who is currently driving, and it is burdensome to track it down afterwards, for example when a vehicle has been speeding.

With EROAD’s new Beep until Login feature, the Ehubo 2 will beep continuously until the driver logs in. And they will also see a message displayed on the device advising them to Stop and Login.

 

Enabling the feature

You have the option to enable this feature on a per vehicle basis - it is off by default. For Ehubo 2 devices with Driver Login enabled, customers will now see an additional Ehubo feature “Beep Until Login”. This will only appear in the feature list once Driver Login is enabled. 

If you have ever struggled to enforce driver login in your fleet, we expect this new Ehubo 2 feature will significantly increase the rate at which drivers login and quickly create a positive behaviour change.

Overspeed report and speed investigation tools 

EROAD has launched a new integrated Overspeed Report to Map experience, that allows you to jump straight from a speeding session in the new Overspeed Dashboard, to the location of the speeding event in the Map. 

Previously, trying to understand how a speeding event occurred was quite time consuming. It required going from the Overspeed Report to Google Maps, to Street View, looking around, going back to the Map, finding the vehicle, going to the event log, finding the right event etc. 

With the new experience, you can go from the Power BI Overspeed Report directly to the same speeding event on the new Map (by clicking on the Go to Map link) where you will be able to see data related to the speeding event, including the vehicle speed, posted road speed, vehicle type and the conditional road speed. You can see this data for every event, and by moving through these events you can easily understand how the vehicle’s speed and road speed changed over time, and the context in which the speeding event occurred. For example, did a speed zone transition occur and the vehicle didn’t slow down in time? Was it persistent speeding over a period? Was there a school or built-up area? We have made it easier for you to investigate speeding events and see the behaviour before and after the event.

EROAD Inspect gets a revamp

 

EROAD Inspect

EROAD Inspect, the mobile app that lets you carry out pre-and post-trip vehicle inspections digitally with ease, has had a makeover. We have updated the user interface to provide you with a better user experience and taken the opportunity of the rebuild to make the app more stable and secure.

The updated version of the EROAD Inspect app is also backward compatible. So, if you have been using the previous version of the app, your user credentials and data from previous inspection sessions will come across to the new version automatically. Simply update the app, sign in and you’re good to go. First time users of the app will need to login using a username or PIN.

To take advantage of the enhancements and fresh new interface, we recommend that you update your EROAD Inspect App to the latest version.


Updating the EROAD Inspect App

  • If you have the automatic update feature enabled on your smart device, the update will happen automatically   
  • If automatic updates is turned off in your device settings, then you will need to manually update the App by going to the relevant app store (links below), and tapping Update.
