The device then compares it to another timestamp in the future to measure the delta engine hours with the actual passage of time.With a scaling error of 60 times, it becomes fairly easy to determine which scaling the vehicle operates under. One of Geotab’s strengths is the ability of the Geotab GO to satisfy most vehicle mandates that require the reporting of engine hours from the on-board engine computer.The Geotab GO device can save a timestamp from the system’s internally tracked time (i.e.the trustworthy source in this example), and current reported engine hours on vehicle start up.Through My Geotab, customers can compare the logged engine hours between two different dates to determine how much the vehicle was operated within the desired range.This value can then be used to satisfy whatever reporting method is required by the relevant oversight authorities governing the vehicle’s commercial use.

In the past 30 years, several organizations, such as the US Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI), the British Hypertension Society, the European Society of Hypertension (ESH) Working Group on Blood Pressure (BP) Monitoring, and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), have developed protocols for clinical validation of BP measuring devices.
These often come in the form of external vehicle or equipment sensors which pass their data to the telematics device to use its uplink connection to the server.
This allows data from these external devices without network access to be logged alongside normal engine data as tracked by the Geotab GO device.
One aspect to Geotab’s flexibility is its ability to support numerous different add-ons through one of its external IOX adapters.
One of these allows for a messaging network to supply data to/from the Geotab GO device (a network akin to the one used to communicate with the engine’s computer but instead with the capability of talking with any external device the customer wishes to hook up).
