What are the definitions of Event Types & Important Events?

The devices report many different events that are used for tracking, reporting and notifications. These events are grouped into the following categories:

  • General – normal events used for tracking location, movement and usage e.g. ignition and distance interval events
  • Information – Events that confirm a certain informational event e.g. Fence interaction, GPS Signal Acquired
  • Warning – Important events that can be reported on or used for notifications e.g. harsh driving
  • Critical – Highly important events used to notify of a critical event e.g. device tampering, low internal battery, device overheat
  • Speeding – Events that confirm that the vehicle has crossed the over speed condition eg. Speeding

Important events (Warning & Critical) are reported by the devices to indicate an exception or threshold breach. The reported important event types are defined as:

Critical Events:

  • External Power Lost – Device has been disconnected
  • Low External Power – Voltage the device is receiving from its external power source has dropped below the threshold level
  • Low Internal Battery – The device’s internal battery has dropped below the threshold level
  • GPS Jamming Started – Device has been targeted with a GPS jammer
  • GPS Jamming Stopped – GPS jamming attack has stopped
  • GPS Antenna Cut – The devices external antenna has been cut or damaged
  • Potential Collision – The device has detected a potential collision (g-force threshold breach)
  • Potential Roll Over – The device has detected a potential rollover of the Asset (g-force threshold breach)
  • Device Overheating – The device’s temperature has exceeded normal operating conditions
  • Seat Belt Alarm – The device detects when the seat buckle is unbuckled when the vehicle ignition is ON and the vehicle is moving (only available for some vehicles)
  • Temperature Alert – The vehicles engine temperature has exceeded normal operating conditions

Warning Events:

  • Harsh Accelerate – Asset has experienced a harsh acceleration event
  • Harsh Braking – Asset has experienced a harsh braking event
  • Harsh Left Cornering – Asset has experienced a harsh left cornering event
  • Harsh Right Cornering – Asset has experienced a harsh right cornering event
  • Speeding – Device has reported a speeding event
  • Towing Started – Device has detected movement started with no ignition event
  • Towing Stopped – Device has stopped moving when preceded by towing started
