The newest model in the OttoView data logger family that supports both light-duty and heavy-duty vehicle connections. This model is being used in Transport Canada’s Canadian Vehicle Use Study (CVUS) and in other naturalistic driving research studies in North America.
The multi-protocol OttoView-CVS44 data logger starts up and shuts down with the vehicle’s ignition and operates with standard ICE and also hybrid vehicles. OttoView incorporates a 3.5″ color TFT display with touch screen functionality and is configured to display numerous vehicle metrics including fuel and operational costs, fuel economy and CO2 emissions, coolant temperature, and others. The data logger will also provide in-vehicle driving alerts when exceeding the speed limit and when approaching community safe zones or hazardous intersections (where coverage maps exist).
GPS position, vehicle diagnostic information, and driver-entered information can also be transmitted over a cellular network using the Ottotracker web service for real-time location tracking, vehicle use reporting and for on-screen dispatch messaging.
