Template:FMM640 Towing Detection
Towing Detection[edit source]
Towing Detection feature helps to inform the driver about unexpected car movement when it was parked. FMM640 generates an event when car is being towed or lifted, for example, in a case of vehicle evacuation. FMM640 activates towing function when following conditions are met:
- Ignition (configured Ignition Source) is OFF.
- Activation Timeout is reached.
When towing function is engaged FMM640 monitors accelerometer data. If acceleration Threshold or Angle reach configured values for a configured Duration, and Ignition is still OFF for a period of time that is longer than Event Timeout, then an event is generated. When configured, Make Call To and Send SMS To functions make a call or send an SMS to a predefined phone number. Towing function will be reactivated after FMM640 detects a change of Ignition state from ON to OFF.
