The Route Compliance tab in RouteReporter is where you can view all of the information about your drivers' trips. Click on the tab to select it.
Step 1: Select a vehicle or driver group
You can toggle between Vehicle and Driver Groups by selecting Vehicles or Drivers at the top of the Route Compliance panel.
Use the Filter to quickly search for a vehicle or driver group by name, or click View All Vehicles/Drivers to see the entire list. The number of vehicles within each group is displayed in the badge next to the group name.
Click on a vehicle or driver group name to view the information related to the vehicles or drivers within that group.
Step 2: Select one or more vehicles in a group
Enter a date range for which which you would like to view route compliance information. You can then select specific vehicles or drivers to view by checking Select All or by checking boxes next to individual vehicles or driver. (You can also use the Filter to quickly search for a vehicle or driver by name.)
You can further narrow your results by clicking the gear button and checking or unchecking:
- Hide Routes with no Events: "Events" refers to the vehicle out-of-route events. Check this box to eliminate all records associated with the selected vehicle that are fully compliant with the planned route.
- Hide Routes with Unpredictable Data: CoPilot might send back inaccurate GPS data points, which could result in inaccurate distances and routes in RouteReporter. Checking this option eliminates displaying routes that may contain outliers.
- Hide Routes in Planned Only State: Check this box to hide routes that were planned on CoPilot but never actually driven.
We recommend checking the Hide Routes boxes only if you want to exclusively look at routes with definitive Out-of-Route (OoR) events. Leave the boxes unchecked to view OoR events as well as other common issues: failing GPS on devices, drivers not completing routes, etc.
Step 3: View the trip and Out-of-Route events
Click on View Vehicles to view all routes executed by the selected vehicles. Each route is presented in the form of a route card. (See example below.)
(Click image to enlarge)
Elements of the Route Card:
- Driver Name and Vehicle Name that were used to complete the route. Click the toggle switch to On, to display the selected route on the map.
- The actual and planned distance and duration information.
- Origin and Destination address including the Departure and Arrival Information.
- Event Details refers to the Out-of-Route events. There are two events: Left Planned Route (departed planned route by a perpendicular distance greater than the setting in the FleetPortal Configuration Profile); and Rejoined Planned Route (getting within the planned route by the perpendicular distance less than the setting in the FleetPortal Configuration Profile). The RouteSource indicates the source using which the route was generated for the trip. In this example, Manual ("MAN" label) indicates that the destination was manually entered by the driver. Other options include Integration ( "INT" label) and RouteSync ("RS" label). INT means the stops were provided via integration from a TMS dispatch. You might also see MAN if a driver adds stops to a route sent via integration.
- Actual and Planned Route on Map. (Gaps may indicate that Copilot was shut down and then resumed.)
Route card icons:
- Click the arrow to display the GPS pings for the route on the map.
- Click the box to zoom in the map to this route.
- Click the slider to hide or display this route on the map.
- Click the arrow to see the Route Card with more detailed information about the route, including any "events."
Planned Route – the original prescribed route either generated by CoPilot Truck or from a RouteSync package. This appears as a shaded bar that matches the color of the corresponding table row.
Actual Route – the actual route taken by the driver as defined by GPS breadcrumbs recorded while the route was active. This appears as a straight, blue line with blue dots representing the GPS pings.
Note: the map will display straight lines between GPS points in order to provide an efficient service.
Route Origin – the starting point of the planned route, typically where the vehicle was when the route was generated. Clicking on this icon on the map will pop up a callout with additional information about the
Route Origin event.
Route Destination – the ending point of the planned route. In multi-stop routes, this is the last stop of the trip. Clicking on this icon on the map will pop up a callout with additional information about the Route
Left Planned Route – where the vehicle left the prescribed route beyond the defined distance threshold. Clicking on this icon on the map will pop up a callout with additional information about the Left Planned Route event.
Rejoined Planned Route – where the vehicle came back to the prescribed route. Clicking on this icon on the map will pop up a callout with additional information about the Rejoined Route event
Show/Hide GPS Pings
A toggle button allows you to enable and disable the display of GPS pings on the map for each trip.
Each callout includes either the type of event (Left Route or Rejoined Route) or where the GPS ping falls in the sequence of pings. It also includes the coordinates, time, speed and direction of the GPS ping. For Out-of-Route (OOR) events, mileage details will be shown.
The route card provides a comprehensive view of compliance data reported including the Out of Route Event details.
Data accuracy refers to the quality of GPS data points captured by CoPilot. High data accuracy indicates accurate calculation of distance and display of routes whereas ‘Low’ data accuracy indicates that the data may not be very reliable.
The Out of Route (OOR) Event Details include:
- Type of event i.e. the driver left the prescribed route or rejoined the prescribed route
- Date and time when the event occurred
- OOR distance when the event occurred
- Location and GPS Coordinates information
