With Automatic Duty Status your drivers don't have to remember to change their duty status every time they start driving.The drivers only need to use the Driver App when they start and end their shifts. Just enable "Automatic Duty Status" under the HOS/DVIR tab in Settings.
Samsara combines inputs from the Driver App with data from the vehicle. When the vehicle starts moving the driver’s status changes automatically.
When drivers enter the vehicle they only need to set their status to “On Duty” in the app. When their truck starts moving, the app automatically sets their status to “Driving” once their vehicle travels over 5 miles per hour, logging their hours and setting back to “On Duty” when their truck stops moving for 5 minutes.
Automatic status changes are made regardless of connectivity status.
