MV+AI confidence levels

Data is collected and analyzed every ten seconds while your vehicle is moving. Within every ten-second window, a confidence level for whether an event is occurring is determined each second. When the number of seconds in a window determined to have events occurring passes a pre-configured threshold, we mark the event as identified.

Note

The threshold is hard-coded and cannot be changed.

The driver is warned after an event is identified for a few ten-second windows in a row (Intervals to beep in the table below). If the event continues to be identified for a few more ten-second windows (Intervals to send event in the table below), an alert is sent to the cloud.

For example: a driver may or may not be on their phone. In this instance, let’s say that the pre-configured threshold is 4 out of 10 seconds. 

  • Case 1: MV+AI determines that the driver is using a cell phone for 2 out of 10 seconds in an interval. This confidence level is below the pre-configured threshold, and the driver is not alerted.

  • Case 2: MV+AI determines that the driver is using a cell phone for 6 out of 10 seconds in an interval. This confidence level is above the pre-configured threshold, so the driver is alerted with a beep to stop using their phone. If the drive continues to use their phone for 2 more intervals (3 total intervals), an alert is sent to the cloud.

The following table identifies the number of intervals required for each event:

Note

The number of intervals before a warning is sent to the driver or an alert is sent to the cloud are hard-coded and cannot be changed.
