HOS New Features and Enhancements
Updates to Sleeper Berth
When a co-driver is Off-duty in a Passenger Seat of a moving commercial vehicle (49 CFR 395.2) to complete a Split Sleeper Berth pairing, the ELD will no longer automatically change co-driver’s duty status to On-duty not driving. The co-driver will receive a warning message at 30, 15, and 1 minute before the third hour of off-duty time if the vehicle is moving; however, there will be no automatic duty status change.
Multiple reports indicated that drivers were continuously receiving alerts anticipating a potential HOS rules violation. To address this, pessimistic alerts have been removed so drivers will only see the true optimistic driving alerts at 60, 30, and 15 minutes before and at the time of violation. Once a driver has selected the Will Pair SB option, the following screen will be displayed. Drivers must acknowledge the requirement by selecting OK. If the driver turns off the Will Pair SB option, no message will be displayed.
The same changes apply for Canadian split sleeper alerts.
An Unidentified Vehicle Activity period is created every time there is a vehicle moving at a speed in excess of 5 mph and no driver is logged in. When the driver logs in again, a notification about the activity appears, asking the driver to confirm or decline the UVA. However, when a driver is presented with a UVA period that overlaps with driving time, an alert will pop up confirming that UVA cannot be offered due to pre-existing driving time, as seen in the image below. The UVA period will be automatically rejected.
- In order to improve customer experience in the host and mobile, townships and cities with a population of less than 5,000 people have been removed from the United States city database.
- For Canadian customers, the city list is supplied by CCMTA.
