FMC001 Features settings
When vehicle parameters exceed the values of Max Acceleration, Max Braking or Max Cornering parameters, the scenario is activated: a record is generated and digital output status is changed to 1 when configured. You can configure all three parameters in m/s2 units. Scenario is activated until current Acceleration, Braking or Cornering value decreases below the set parameter value.
Parameters used with Eco/Green Driving functionality are given in a table below.
|Scenario Settings||Enable/Disable Green driving functionality|
|Max Acceleration||Value which can be reached while accelerating without triggering harsh acceleration event.|
|Max Braking Acceleration||Value which can be reached while braking without triggering harsh braking event.|
|Max Cornering Acceleration||Value which can be reached while cornering without triggering harsh cornering event.|
|Source||Which source (GPS or accelerometer) data will be collected from.|
|Eco/Green Driving Duration||If enabled, additional record with Eco/Green Driving event duration (ms) will be saved and send to server. When GPS is selected as the data source duration accuracy will be in seconds.|
Data from accelerometer/GPS are continuously monitored and processed and are used to decide whether a harsh event has occurred. If either of three cases is satisfied, an event is generated and a record is saved and sent to the server (FMC001 must be properly configured in order to send the record). Event value is multiplied by 100 before sending/saving record to get more precision when displaying data.
The auto-calibration process is following:
- The vehicle is stopped.
- There is a straight road ahead.
- Send SMS "auto_calibrate:set" to the FMC device.
- Accelerate to >30 km/h for 5 sec.
- FMC will send a response when calibration is completed successfully.
Calibration is saved to internal flash memory, which means it will stay after a reset. To check auto-calibration status send a following short text message to the FMC device: "auto_calibrate:get".
When vehicle speed exceeds configured maximum speed value the scenario is activated, an event record is generated and digital output status is changed to 1 when configured.
Scenario is active until detected speed decreases below the set parameter value.
GNSS Fuel Counter
- To configure Fuel Counter parameters use fuel consumption norms which are presented in the technical documentation of the vehicle. By default speeds for these fuel consumption norms are: City – 30 km/h, Average - 60 km/h, Highway - 90 km/h. These values can be changed.
- When speed is higher than the highway fuel consumption speed, x% of highway fuel consumption is added every extra y km/h, by default FMC001 adds 20% every 50 km/h of extra speed. For example, the fuel consumption is (1.2 * (Highway Fuel Consumption)) at 140 km/h and (1.4 * (Highway Fuel Consumption)) at 190 km/h.
- Correction coefficient is used to correct every value of fuel consumption which is sent to the server through an expression of ((Used Fuel) * Correction coefficient). By default it is 1, with minimum and maximum values of accordingly 0.01 and 2. For example, when correction coefficient is 1 and FMC001 calculates that the amount of used fuel over 35 m distance is 20 ml, the value of 20 ml will be sent to the server, and if correction coefficient is 1.2, the value of 20 * 1.2 = 24 ml will be sent to the server.
- Fuel Consumption on Idling is used to calculate fuel consumption when the ignition is on, but the vehicle is stationary. The consumption value is 1 l/h by default, with a minimum and maximum of accordingly 0 and 5 l/h. This parameter is less than 1.0 l/h for almost all diesel cars and is equal to about 1.5 – 2.0 l/h for gasoline cars.
