IN-VEHICLE EQUIPMENT AND SERVICING
EUROPA IN-VEHICLE TELEMATICS EQUIPMENT
The Europa System provides the following features and functions:
• The Europa Data Recorder is a vehicle telemetry device that captures and transfers data about a vehicle and its operating parameters including utilisation
• The Driver ID device will associate a driver with a journey to monitor driver behaviour
• The Driver Feedback device indicates driving mode/style
• Manufactured at a facility that has ISO 9001 accreditation
• Compliant with standards BS EN 60068 (environmental tested) and BS EN 60529 IP55 (water, dust and sand ingress)
• AES Spec 5 accredited
• CE and/or e marked
• In line with ‘Driver Vehicle Data Management System (DVDMS)’ parameters
Equipment Set-up and Servicing
Installation Training and Software
Standby RSG is able to offer a range of mature and comprehensive ‘Installation’ training packages that are fully supported by hard copy manuals and software for all vehicle equipment, examples of which are available on request.
Calibration Training & Software
Standby RSG is able to offer a range of mature and comprehensive ‘Calibration’ training packages fully supported by soft/hard copy manuals and software for all vehicle equipment, examples of which are available on request. This procedure is also approved to allow data collected to be provided as analytical evidential material for use in a ‘court of law’.
Dual Port CAN Bus Integration
On modern vehicles, manufactured from 2001 onwards, it is now possible to monitor speed, RPM and many other vehicle derived signals via the CAN bus network. The Europa supports CANbus data including CIA447, CANopen and many other protocols, CAN signals are provided by the use of a jcl ﬁle which is updated regularly to support new vehicles and new variants of existing vehicles. The Standby RSG Europa supports connectivity and interfacing with the majority of emergency services vehicles.
Also, due to having a second CAN Bus port the Europa system is able to connect to other vehicle equipment with CAN Bus connectivity such as hazard warning control equipment, making installation more cost effective and timely.
Driver Identiﬁcation (ID) Device
Utilising a RFID card and in-vehicle card reader or similar devices each journey the vehicle makes will be logged to the driver. Should a driver fail to scan their card a warning ‘beep’ will continue to sound until a successful card scan takes place.
The RFID card technologies supported include Mifare, HID, ISO, PAC and others and allow for high level card encryption as well as organisation conﬁrmation, plus the option for vehicle immobilisation.
The data transmitted to the server will only contain the identifying number string of the driver and be subject to standard encryption to protect the driver identity prior to synchronisation with the current driver/employee database in use by the organisation.
• Robust, impact resistant and discrete, designed to withstand in-vehicle environment
• Driver audio ‘prompt to use’ facility
• Has the protocols to interface to ‘Active System Directory’ by way of driver name and collar number to present a unique ID
• Transmission protocols and security provides anonymous ID during transfer from vehicle to server
• Driver name and collar number only collated at point of storage to provide required private protection - part of system set-up
Driver Monitoring and Feedback Device
A discreet dashboard mounted device (various options available) that provides instant and continuous average visit and/or audio feedback regarding how the vehicle is being driven.
Typically an LED traffic light display provides 'at a glance' average driver behaviour along with an audible alarm for 'extreme' driving. Where LED indicators: Green = Good Driving, Amber = Average Driving and Red = Poor Driving.
Event triggers are based on G-Force and speed changes while an automatic 'exception' mode changes the trigger levels during an emergency 'blue light' situation. Parameters can be adjusted so every vehicle can be uniquely set.
By influencing driver behaviour in the vehicle immediate savings will be made in fuel use and maintenance whilst reducing the need for administration of driver correction programs.
