OttoLog application notes



Data recording and trip information examples using OttoLog(TM)

How does it work?

Turn the Otto "on". When Otto is locked to the GPS satellites, indicated when the green light stops flashing, Otto begins recording and storing the location and speed information.

To mark a Point Of Interest (POI) marker, press the right button (the speed button) and press it again when you hear "point of interest". When the button is pressed at that time, you will hear "marked", which confirms that Otto has recorded the current location and time to its memory.

This information is stored in Otto's memory and can be retrieved later by connecting Otto to your PC using the supplied USB cable, and uploading the OttoLog file to the website.

"Employment Standards Code (Manitoba) Effects on Employers"

The Province of Manitoba amended the Employment Standards Code and the amendment became law on April 30, 2007.

The changes affects employers and their ability to deduct wages to cover any costs related to:

  • Company vehicle accidents
  • Speeding tickets
  • Parking tickets
  • Faulty work
  • Loss of customers

Employers are now required to cover the costs directly and then determine wheter or not to pursue the employee by means of criminal or civil court.

"Driving Behaviour"

Vehicle safety continues to evolve with factory installed safety monitoring devices. New GPS road safety applications are now focused on the driver as well as the vehicle. This is done in order to assess the behavior of the drivers in different driving environments.

Excessive speeding, quick accelerations and hard braking affect vehicle performance, increase fuel consumption, and increase maintenance costs to keep the vehicle on the road.

Otto with OttoLog can help provide you with driving behaviour information. Here are some application examples where such information may prove beneficial:

  • Leased vehicle driver monitoring
  • Commercial delivery driving behaviour
  • Novice driver monitoring
  • Public-servant driving behaviour
  • Environmental impact of driving behaviours
  • Car rental driving behaviour
