Live Tacho View


This page aims to present the Live Tacho View - also called the Find Best Driver view.

The view is driver-centric:

  • if a driver is not identified using his tachograph driver card, data is not displayed.
  • if a unique vehicle is used by more than a driver during a shift, the activities will be displayed in a specific line for each driver.
  • The tachograph Live view is based a new tacho data feed developed and maintained by MICHELIN Connected Fleet.
  • By default, all data comes from the events captured by the M400 using the ISO protocol and diagnostics technology, and the aggregated by Masternaut.
  • New data is captured every minute and updated in near real time

Targeted persona

It addresses the dispatcher or the traffic manager. It enables them to search and find which drivers have the most remaining time for an extra job.

How to use it?

The end-user can view the identified drivers, who are currently using or were using the vehicles recently.

The drivers with the most remaining daily driving times are displayed at the top by default.

However, the end-user can choose another preference and :

  • Filter the list of drivers by group or select one specific driver
  • Filter the list of drivers depending on a specific activity: break/rest, availability, work, drive
  • Filter the list of drivers depending on whether they have activities today or not

There are two different visualizations :

  • Timers tab focus on accumulated and remaining times with the ability to
    • Show only the useful timers by selecting the appropriate columns
    • Use a specific column to sort drivers and prioritize the drivers' times
  • Timesheets tab focus on detailed activities of recent past
    • Activities and infringements are displayed as activity blocks
    • Timesheets are all centred on current time (in the user’s time zone)
    • Optimal activity suggestions are provided for the near future
  • Selecting a specific driver expands a larger area with more details for that driver
  • Pressing the “More” button navigates to the driver’s history view, where data from the past can be analyzed from date to date
  • Pressing the “Refresh” button updates all drivers with the latest data captured from the tachographs
