All in all, the make IButton tracking device works well, which requires software and hardware technology to work together. It is a complex system of components.The more function the device has, the more components you need.
If your fleet keep the authorized iButton ID in gps tracking devices, even no GSM/3G signal , the iButton ID verification part in gps tracking device would still work normally, meanwhile it will cache iButton data in memory,if 3g/4G signal work again,those data will be transfered again.
The iButton device is the ultimate information carrier for automatic identification, secure authentication, and many portable applications.
A GPS tracker integrated Ibuttons will be benefits for the driver‘s safety.For companies with large fleets, it is important to ensure driver safety and to identify certified employees.
The operation of iButtons is simple yet very effective:
A distinctive key fob is assigned to each driver.A reader is installed in the vehicle which is connected to the GPS tracking device.When the driver starts the vehicle he is required to present the key fob to the key reader. This associates him with that vehicle.A LED light gives feed back to the driver that the key has been accepted
Powerful reports are then generated from this collected data. Reports can be run by vehicle or driver for any length of time containing times of log in and outs along with durations.
The reports will tell you more details including :
1.Daily detail of the time when drivers start and finish the task
2.How many hours worked per day, week, month.
3.Since the iButton logs out the driver after each long stop (predefined by you), you'll learn more about the daily routine of each one of your drivers.
4.You can also generate summary reports with total hours worked.
5.Worked hours report per driver can be exported to excel for further analysis
1, Driver authorization – gives ability to use vehicle only for specific iButton owners and identify which driver is on the road.
2, Immobilizer – without iButton authorization you can not run engine starter and and use vehicle.
3, AutoGeofencing – gives ability to know when car leaves customized areas without iButton authorization.
