J. J. Keller & Associates has been granted a new patent titled "Driving Monitoring and Detection System.”
The invention aims to address the problem of unidentified driving events when using an electronic logging device (ELD).
The J. J. Keller Encompass application, available on both Android and iOS platforms, incorporates this driving monitoring and detection system, which leverages the mobile device's GPS module to detect motion when the ELD is disconnected.
If the device moves beyond set distance and time thresholds, it triggers a prompt for the user to reconnect the ELD to the Encompass application.
Additionally, this information is relayed to the administrative side of the Encompass solution, providing fleet managers with detailed insights into when and how long the application was in motion while disconnected from the ELD.
Adhering to Essential Regulations
Roman Bykhovoy, a senior developer with J. J. Keller and an inventor of the driving monitoring and detection system, said, "I am profoundly honored to have contributed to the development of this invention — a tool that will enable motor carriers to adhere to essential regulations, consequently establishing safer highways for everyone on the road. I am sincerely grateful to J. J. Keller for providing me with the opportunity to transform this concept into a functional solution that is now utilized by thousands of drivers."
The patent allows J. J. Keller the exclusive rights to make, sell, or license this invention. This mechanism is crucial in maintaining compliance among drivers. It can assist the carrier's support team in identifying and communicating with drivers who are not complying with regulations.
