Omnitracs IVG DA1256R Release Notes

Overview

We are pleased to announce that the Omnitracs IVG DA1256R release is available.

This release includes new features, enhancements, and software corrections.

 

New Features and Enhancements

The new features and enhancements section describes the changes included in the IVG release.

 

Enhanced Network Message Communication Protocol

Changes in the backend system will balance the volume of messages on the server to improve communication performance that improve system reliability.

Initially, only Hours of Service (HOS) and Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIR) will be part of this enhanced architecture, but more applications will make use of it and benefit from the improved performance over time.

The applications that will be supported by this new architecture are:

  • DVIR              Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports
  • HOS               Hours of Service
  • WMC             Workflow Management Center
  • EFuel             Exact Fuel
  • CER                Critical Event Reporting
  • Scanning

*Note: This is not the definitive order in which the applications will be supported, but a list of all the applications for which the communication will be improved.

 

Fax Email Request on the Mobile App

  • A change was made to the Fax Email request on the Mobile App. The Fax option was replaced with an option to select the format of the log to allow the driver to request AOBRD or ELD Format. This will send the appropriate log based on the operating zone selected.

Drop down Name is Log Format

Drop down options are

  • AOBRD
  • ELD

Malfunction and Diagnostic Clear events will clear 24 hours from the time they occurred

The Malfunction Clear event process clears events 24 hours from the time they occurred in Canadian and U.S. ELD.

 

Mobile Malfunction Alerts Comply with Canadian and US Standards

All Malfunction Alert warnings are available in Canadian French to comply with the Canadian ELD Requirements.

 

New device installations default to ELD on startup

When a unit is installed, on startup ELD Mode is enabled as the default.

 

Off Duty Deferral allows the driver to adjust the amount of time deferred

A new field is displayed in the CDA Aux Event return message that displays the suggested duration of the deferral, and what the driver deferred.

Off Duty Deferral Day 1

The Driver UI for Off Duty Deferral Day 1 has been updated to enable the driver to reduce the amount of time deferred to day 2.

  • A button was added on the current Day 1 called Edit Time Deferred.
  • When the button is selected, a date picker (HH:MM) is available. The date picker will show the Maximum amount of off duty time the driver is allowed to defer to day 2.
  • A notice will display, "The duration of time indicated in the time deferred, is the maximum amount of time aloud to be deferred to Day 2. Select the date picker to reduce amount of off duty time needed to be deferred."

Off Duty Deferral Day 2

The Driver screen for Off Duty Deferral Day 2 has been updated to enable the driver to reduce the amount of time deferred to day 2.

  • A button was added on the current Day 2 called Edit Time Deferred.

The driver can change the amount to defer.

  • The last value selected in the DateTimePicker will be used to record the Off Duty Deferral Event. The value is displayed in Inspector view, header view, and return message in the portal.
  • Clocks are not modified when the time picker changes.

 

Power, Engine Sync, Position Malfunctions, and Unidentified Driving Diagnostics Events now use a sliding 24-hour window instead of the Driver’s Day

  • Power, Engine Sync, Position Malfunctions and Unidentified Driving Diagnostics Events now use a sliding 24-hour window instead of the drivers Day.

 

Team Drivers can swap Driving between Co-drivers

  • New functionality that unlocks events and updates the On Duty Status to Active after the Co-driver has Accepted their requested swaps.

The lock occurs locally when the driver requests a lock, then that local lock is released when that swap appears in their logs as pending and the functionality is no longer locally locked. It remains unavailable until they no longer have driving swaps pending on their unit meaning both drivers have addressed it.

If the co-driver rejected any of the swaps, then we keep the rejected driving events active and update the On Duty Status to Rejected Inactive.

If a swap request fails in the Host, we unlock the events for editing to allow the driver to re-request a swap.

  • In the event that the Driving swap request fails due to a pre-existing driving condition, the mobile App will unlock the swap function for the driver.
  • The Will Pair feature is enabled on the vehicle and driver level. When the vehicle does not have a sleeper berth, the driver is not allowed to use sleeper berth when in the vehicle.

The mobile App's FW message notifies the driver that they are disabled from using Will Pair because the admin disabled the feature for the driver, or the truck doesn't have a sleeper berth.

The Will Pair setting will not get overwritten by the Host if it's missing the Will Pair extension and both drivers will be updated properly when the vehicle gets disabled/enabled for Will Pair. The Mobile App for the Co-Driver will now update properly as well.

 

Unidentified Driver no longer splits into a manual driving event

  • Unidentified driver no longer splits into manual driving on Ignition off, logged in drivers still work the same.

 

Will Pair Sleeper Berth Enhancements

  • When a driver checks or unchecks the Will Pair SB option on the status tab, a message is sent to the host to document the change.
  • The Driver does not have the ability to use Will Pair Sleeper Berth when the vehicle does not have a Sleeper Berth. This ensures that they are not using optimistic clocks when they do not apply.
  • The driver screen will display or hide the Will Pair Sleeper Berth feature when appropriate, to prevent the driver from selecting the feature. For example:
    • Hides the Will Pair checkbox when the driver/vehicle is not enabled for Will Pair.
    • Hides the Will Pair checkbox when the driver is logged in and has not received logs. When the user receives logs, the Will pair checkbox is displayed.
  • A driver notification is sent when a back-end user disables the driver's ability to use the Will Pair SB feature.

 

Miscellaneous Changes

  • Fixed a cosmetic issue on the Canadian Header screen where fields were truncated when using the French-Canadian version.
  • Terminology is now more consistent on various screens and prompts when referring to a truck, tractor or vehicle which are referring to the same thing, which is what ELD refers to as the Power Unit Number.
  • In several Hours of Service related screens, the Radio Button's background color now matches the page.
  • Manual Driving is now enabled by default.
  • When the customer fails to enter a DOT #, the field will be blank in the eRODS file for FMCSA. We no longer auto populate the field with 9999999.
