How do alternative vehicles report trip data?

Question: My fleet has several hybrid vehicles. How does that affect tracking data if a trip is defined as the period between ignition “on” and ignition “off?” Based on our partnership with the Go Green movement, we employ a device-level script especially for hybrid vehicles that maintains a continuous trip as long as physical and/or electronic movement occurs within two minutes. (Most stop lights are 90 seconds or less.) Some of the specific conditions that will maintain a continuous trip include: An increase in voltage. Movement, even if creeping forward in a right/left turn lane. Movement based on the accelerometer. Most providers’ data captures ignition status change events only. Because alternative vehicle engines shut off when stopped, at a red light for example, their data would show that a driver’s trip ended in the middle of the road, when in reality that isn’t true. GPS Insight’s data, on the other…
