The Hummingbird Driver Behaviour Monitor, designed to work specifically with the Navman wireless QUBE, provides real-time information on your fleet. The sensor can detect accident, roll-over, harsh-braking, harsh-acceleration and harsh rate-of-turn events and can also monitor battery voltage.
Hummingbird and Navman Wireless have worked together to produce a driver behaviour monitor tailored specifically for use with the Navman Wireless Qube.
The Hummingbird configurable force monitor has traditionally been used to highlight Harsh Braking, Accident and Rollover for lite driver behaviour based alerting and critical vehicle alerting in crash situations via Conex. With recent development work between Hummingbird and Navman Wireless additional functionality in the form of Harsh Acceleration and Cornering has been added creating a new device to alert on key harsh vehicle usage parameters.
The driver behaviour monitor is compatible with the spare RS232 serial port found on the Navman Wireless Qube. In addition to the serial interface, 4 digital outputs are available that go high when an event is detected. The outputs are associated with accident and roll-over, harsh braking, harsh acceleration and rate of turn and can be used to trigger Conex inputs on the Qube.
Typical configuration messages can be found in the fitment guide. The detector will respond to a configuration change by sending a confirmation message that can be viewed in AVL. If no confirmation is received, then the change has not been made. The detector can be asked to return its current settings and also to simulate an event. This should be done at installation to ensure that all connections have been made and that the detector is configured.
A comprehensive self-test can be requested via the user console. The self-test forces the physical sensor devices in the detector to experience g-force and rate of turn events. The outputs are all triggered and a serial message is sent. Using the self-test feature, system integrity can be verified. It is recommended that this is done often.
The configurable force & rate detectors are supplied in a rugged aluminium enclosure that is splash-proof. Provision for screw mounting, when required, is provided.
The unit should be mounted horizontally with the screw mounting plate down and the cable facing the rear of the vehicle.
Power to the unit and outputs are provided through colour coded wires.
