Telemetry Operations Reports

These reports track telemetry events to provide the operational status of equipment and monitor specific services – for example, the time spent and distance traveled by a street sweeper with the arm down and broom turning.  This advanced fleet monitoring supports service performance analysis and contractor billing/invoice reconciliation.


Data Retention: Advanced Reports and Queries (including Telemetry Operations) can access up to 15 months of historical data. If you want to work with information older than 15 months, please contact the Webtech Wireless Support team.


Requirements

Vehicles configured with telemetry inputs for the services you want to track must be set up and added to Vehicle Groups activated for Telemetry Operations reporting. For more information, please contact the Webtech Wireless Support team.

  • Appropriate telemetry sensors must be purchased and installed.

To generate a Day-Based Telemetry Operations report:

  1. In the  Time & Resources pane, select a reporting period (Time Range) for capturing telemetry operations data.
  2. In the Main Menu, click Advanced Reporting–>Telemetry Operations–>Day Based.
  3. In the Day Based window, click the Select a Report drop-down menu and choose a report.
  4. Click View Report (located in the top-right corner of the window). The report appears in the Day Based window.
  • Vehicles are included based on the predefined report setup.
  • For each day in the reporting period, one row appears for every vehicle with telemetry activity meeting the operational criteria on that day.
Important

Time & Resources pane vehicle selections do not apply to Telemetry Operations reports. Vehicles are included based on Vehicle Groups specified in the predefined report setup. For more information, please contact the Webtech Wireless Support team.

If Telemetry Operations does not appear in the Advanced Reporting pane, please contact the Webtech Wireless Support team.

The number of reports you can choose from depends on your system setup. Two types of telemetry reporting are available: operational service and equipment status, as described below.

Sample Operational Service Report

Operational service reports aggregate telemetry inputs to describe services such as plowing or sweeping. For example, assume the definition of a plowing service requires the plow to be down, and the spreader off. A Telemetry Operations report can monitor both telemetry inputs and map them, tracking the time and distance the plowing service was operational:

Tip

Click the Date or Vehicle headings to sort by either column.

Tip

Specific, named telemetry inputs for Operational columns are predefined for each report when it is created.

Column Definitions

Start Time

First time the vehicle’s ignition was turned on, for this date

End Time

Last time the vehicle’s ignition was turned off, for this date

Operational Duty Time                          Total time ignition was on while service operational

Operational Travel Time                        Total time vehicle was moving while service operational

Operational Idle Time                            Total time vehicle stopped for greater than 2 minutes while service operational

Operational Distance                             Total distance vehicle traveled while service operational

Duty Time                           Total time the vehicle’s ignition was on that day

Total Travel                        Total time the vehicle was moving during the day

Total Idle Time                   Total time vehicle stopped for greater than 2 minutes while ignition on during the day

Total Distance                    Total distance the vehicle traveled that day

Duty Time                Percentage of time ignition was on that the service was operational

Distance                   Percentage of distance traveled that the service was operational

Sample Equipment Status Report

Equipment status reports track individual inputs, and provide separate time and distance values for each telemetry operation:

Column definitions are as described above for Operational Service reports, with the exception that equipment status reports only provide time and distance values for each monitored telemetry input, as well as total time and distance values for each vehicle/day.
