Isaac Instruments has integrated an array of updates through Isaac Solution 5.07, building on Canadian ELD functions.
Route navigation has been enhanced through CoPilot Truck, which includes tools to identify routes to take and those to avoid. Route Reporter will show if trucks are deviating from those routes, and the preferences can be sync’d with PC*Miler software to ensure billing closely matches real mileage.
Routing profiles and waypoints can also be integrated with transportation management systems and transferred to driver tablets. This will allow options such as selecting different routing profiles for different stops within a trip, to optimize routes based on the type of load. A driver hauling hazardous materials, for example, might use a route profile that avoids tunnels.
Fleets using Axon Software’s transportation management system will see trip information automatically sent to driver tablets via Isaac messaging.
Meanwhile, safety managers can now extract videos through Isaac InView, whether they’re associated with a hard maneuver or not. This can offer added context around an event when investigating a public complaint or incident, Isaac says.
Further information about driver behavior is available through Isaac InRealTime critical events portals that now support events generated by advanced driver assistance systems such as forward collision warnings.
In terms of Hours of Service, drivers can indicate whether they intend to split sleeper berth hours, as allowed under U.S. rules. And the newest version allows the start time of the day to be aligned with a driver’s shift.
Scan 2.0 tools have also been improved to increase the contrast on black-and-white scans, while drivers can manually crop images rather than relying on automatic crops alone. That is particularly useful when scanning documents in dimly lit or tight spaces such as a truck cab, which can be a challenge for the automatic cropping.
