How Route Compliance Data is Generated

  • Your CoPilot application is ultimately what generates Route Compliance data. As long as Route Compliance is active in the vehicle, any RouteSync package received or route that is generated in-cab (prescribed route) will be used as the “planned” route. Then, as the vehicle moves, its GPS locations are used as the “actual” route.

  • When the vehicle deviates from the planned route, CoPilot records the GPS locations more frequently and triggers an alert that can be passed to CoPilot RouteReporter.

  • At the end of the trip, a Route Compliance package is sent from CoPilot Truck for back office reporting purposes. By default, GPS is recorded every 5 minutes while following the planned route, and every 2 minutes while the vehicle is Out-of-Route.

Note: Route Compliance packages are recorded for each route run in CoPilot Truck, whether for a single leg of a trip (to a single destination) or for the entire planned trip (to a series of stops).
