Details about the vehicle monitoring system functions below. 

Function “Fuel level control”

It is necessary to install a fuel level sensor in order to allow the monitoring system to receive the data about the fuel level.  

With the help of this sensor the monitoring system can provide the following data:

Refueling. While refueling the fuel level sensor accurately defines the amount of fuel. The user receives the data (figures and charts) in the personal account. The monitoring system transmits this data to the server every 30 seconds. Therefore, a user can receive the actual data  every minute or according to a user’s request. 

So as to receive the report you just need to press one button. Then you will see the data about the time and place of refueling in Russian language. You can be aware of the current fuel level using the information on the panel below. 

Fuel consumption. The monitoring system is able to calculate the fuel consumption independently from the factory-installed fuel level sensor. The users can see the fuel consumption data in the general report both currently and according to the time frame that you choose. The measurements are calculated per hour and per 100km. 

Fuel drain. It goes about the trouble that almost every director of the transport companies faces. Users can be aware of the fuel drain data because of the general reports or chart. 

Function “Alarm button”

This function is commonly used for the taxi companies. You do not always know who is going to take a taxi and what goals this or that person has. There are cases when taxi drivers have suffered from the passengers with inappropriate behavior. In case of emergency you can just press the “alarm button” instead of giving a call. When the button is pressed, SMS with coordinates and emergency notification are sent to the responsible person’s phone number.

Function “Passenger traffic monitoring”

In order to monitor passenger traffic a passenger counter sensor is additionally installed in the vehicle. It is located under the door opening. When a passenger gets into the vehicle, an invisible infrared ray is refracted by him. The GPS tracker, in turn, calculates the quantity of sensor operations. And it does not depend how many people get in or get out.  Therefore, the report about passengers actions is generated. The information is available on the panel below. The reports can be generated according to the chosen period of time to allow you to get the holistic view.

Function “Remote engine shutoff”

The monitoring system is able to shut down the engine remotely. It is possible because of the additionally installed relay that is responsible for engine operation. If it is necessary, a user can shut down the engine by pressing one button in the personal account anytime. Unblocking is performed in the same way. You need to take into consideration that it is dangerous to block the engine while driving. This function is recommended to be used only when the vehicle is parked. 

The monitoring system has a wide range of functions such as notifications about ignition operation, vehicle evacuation, vehicle power supply failure, broken windows, opened doors, bonnet or boot and many other details. You can find the information in the article “Monitoring system notifications”.
