    How to Work With and Create Seat Belt Reports

    The Seat Belt report provides an indication of when the driver’s side seat belt is not engaged while the vehicle is moving. You can set a speed threshold for vehicles to be included. Not all vehicle types will send seat belt notifications, and accuracy can be improved by installing the AVTC AAF application as part of your configuration.

    Seat Belt reports are limited to a maximum of 400 devices for a period of up to 31 days.

    Viewing a Seat Belt Report

    To view Seat Belt Reports:

    1. From the Reporting dashboard, select a Seat Belt report from the main list, or filter the list by Type > Seat Belt.
    2. Click the desired report.
    3. On the next screen, which shows the report template and recently run reports, click the instance of the report you’d like to view. The full report appears.

    The controls on the right side of the map let you view seat belt status during a vehicle’s trip.

    Segments when the seat belt is unfastened are indicated in red. Each trip on the map is defined by the vehicle ignition being turned on and off. You can use the filters along the top of the map to view results for a particular vehicle, trip or trip segment.

    The columns displayed can be organized, resized and configured to show the parameters you want to see:

    The Telemetry Data column identifies the method used to calculate the speed. Vehicle Speed is speed calculated from vehicle telemetry data, and is generally the most accurate. GPS Speed is speed calculated from GPS data, and is a fallback method when telemetry data is not available.

    Creating a Seat Belt Report

    To begin, from the Reporting dashboard, click the Create a New Report icon.

    An empty report screen appears.

    Select a Template

    Choose how often you’d like this report to be run. Click:

    • Single for a one-time report

    • Weekly

    • Monthly

    • Yearly

    Under Report Properties, you can complete the scheduling for your new report. The section below describes how to configure the time and the day on which you’d like your report to run.

    To run a report immediately, click Run Report.

    Define the Report Properties

    The required fields for creating a valid report are Type, Name and Range.

    Select the Report Type

    Select Seat Belt Report from the Type menu.

    Enter a Name and Description

    Give your report a brief, descriptive name. You may want to use a driver’s name, a vehicle model, and/or the AirLink gateway or router model, depending on the type of report you run.

    Below the Name field, you can enter a longer report description. You may want to include the report’s schedule and reporting zone.

    Select the Reporting Range

    The Range menu lists the options for the reporting period. You can select a predefined Reporting Range, or configure a Custom range.

    If scheduling a recurring report, select one of the relative date ranges (Yesterday or Last 7 Days, for example). Selecting an absolute range will generate the same results each time.

    If you click Custom, a calendar appears, allowing you to select a start date/time and an end date/time for your report.

    Select Recipient Email Addresses

    Click the Recipient Emails field to select who you would like to be notified when the report is run.

    You can also manually enter email addresses in this field.

    Select the Export File Formats

    Reports can be exported as PDF, Excel (.csv) or KML files.

    To select export file formats, click the appropriate buttons.

    Select Units

    You can choose to render your reports in metric or imperial units.

    Select the Minimum Speed Threshold

    Set the speed at which, if the seat belt is not engaged, a “no seat belt” status will be reported.

    Select the Systems

    Select the systems for which you want to run your new report. Select checkboxes for the desired system(s), or filter the list to narrow down your choices. You do not need to use the checkboxes to select specific systems. Selecting the checkboxes will override general filters.

    Select Advanced Settings: Start and End Dates

    The Advanced settings are strictly optional. If you enable these settings, you may want to set a reminder (external to ALMS) to notify yourself of the start and end dates.

    Click the Advanced button to display options for selecting start and end dates for your reports. For example, you can configure a weekly report to run for two months starting one week from today.

    Clicking Start Time or Run Until displays a calendar on which you can define a start date/time and end date/time.
