Distracted Driving Warning
Do not use this device while the vehicle is in motion or in any other driving
situation. Using the device while driving can create dangerous situations where the
driver may not be focused on the road or task at hand.
EVIR Home Screen
- New Inspection – This tab displays information relevant to the asset the tablet was
previously docked in.
- History – This tab displays the inspection history of all assets inspected with this tablet.
- Inspection Types – This tab allows the operator to favorite the inspections they use most
and check for updates to the installed inspection configurations.
- Current Asset – This button will bring up the profile of the current asset associated with
the GPS device the tablet is docked in; including asset number, manufacturer, tag
number, VIN and asset type.
- Last Inspection – This provides a snapshot of information relevant to the last inspection,
such as if the asset is safe to drive or in need of repair. If a defect is creating a yellow or red
status, a total number of reported defects will be displayed.
- Start Inspection – This begins the inspection process.
- Flashlight – This allows the operator to turn on the LED flashlight located on the left side
of the tablet.
How do I conduct a new inspection?
- Log in to the tablet.
- Access the EVIR application by tapping the EVIR symbol on the tablet home screen or
- From the EVIR home screen, tap Start New Inspection.
If Ground Traffic Control has recorded a completed repair, the operator will receive notification to confirm the completion of repairs.
When required, the tablet automatically activates the RFID reader which is indicated by the blue LED at the top left of the tablet.
Choose Inspection Type
- The operator selects the type of inspection being performed.
- Tap Continue.
Scan Asset Tag
- The RFID scanner on the tablet becomes active and the operator must scan the Asset tag on the asset to begin the inspection.
- Unlike the 2010, the operators do NOT need to scan their ID before inspecting.
- The scanner becomes active automatically.
- The scanner is located in different places depending on the tablet:
- 2020: Top left and bottom left corners
- Connect: Bottom left corner
- Tab Active2: Center of the back side
- The glass on the left side of the 2020 and Connect tablets is the flashlight, not the scanner.
- If no asset tag is found on the vehicle, the inspection cannot occur.
- If the operator scans the same tag multiple times, the inspection is reset.
- If a new asset tag is scanned before the inspection is complete, the previous inspection
information is lost.
At any point, the operator may tap the Flashlight icon to use the tablet’s built-in flashlight to help in their inspection.
Choose an Operator
If there is only one operator logged into the tablet, that information is used for this step and this
step is skipped. If there are two operators logged in, the operator doing the inspection must tap
their name and then tap Continue.
Review Last Inspection
- If the last inspection for the asset is available, the operator must review it before
performing a new pre/post trip inspection.
- If the checkbox confirming the review is not checked, the current inspection
- If the checkbox confirming the review is not checked, the current inspection
- Each zone is displayed with its previous condition for the operator to review, unless there
was no previous inspection found.
- Each zone’s status is coded for quick reference:
- No defects found in previous inspection.
- Defects found, vehicle was safe to drive.
- Defects found, vehicle was unsafe to drive.
- Defects are flagged with a status:
- The defect has been noted, but not repaired.
- The defect has been corrected.
- Zone inspections labeled “Unverified” come from inspections that were
performed manually without scanning the corresponding zone tag.
- Scrolling down the previous inspection will display all zones in the inspection, including
all defects that were found during the inspection.
In some cases, the inspection will require the operator to enter arbitrary data before the inspection can continue. In this example, for a dump truck inspection configuration, the operator is asked to enter the mileage.
Most configurations may not use this step.
Perform New Inspection
- Scan the first zone tag to inspect that zone.
- The RFID scanner on the tablet activates automatically.
If necessary, the operator can tap and hold a zone to perform a manual inspection. The operator will be required to enter their operator ID and PIN, and the zone will be marked as Unverified.
- Once a zone is scanned, the operator is asked if all elements are OK.
- Tapping Yes will continue the inspection and allow the next zone to be scanned.
- Tapping No will allow the operator to note any defects.
- Tapping on a component will allow the operator to define the condition.
- If necessary, the operator may attach photographs to the condition by tapping the add pictures button.
It is possible to attach three (3) photos per defect and five (5) photos per inspection.
- After noting any defective components and their details, the tablet asks the operator if the
asset is safe to drive with the existing condition.
- If the asset is safe to drive, tap Yes.
- If the asset is unsafe to drive, tap No.
Certify & Submit Inspection
Once the operator completes the inspection, they must certify and submit the inspection.
If the inspection is incomplete, the tablet warns the operator that the inspection has not
been completed and asks if they wish to proceed.
What if I am missing a zone tag?
The operator will need to perform an unverified inspection if a zone tag is missing.
- The first steps of the inspection remain the same.
- When the inspection reaches step where the operator is asked to scan a zone tag, the operator manually selects a zone by tapping and holding.
- The operator then enters their ID by either typing it in or scanning their operator card.
- The operator then must enter their PIN.
- After entering the operator’s credentials, the zone can be inspected as normal.
- This process must be repeated for every zone inspected without a zone tag.
My inspection has trailer zones, but I don't have a trailer.
Trailer and Dolly zones are optional. If you are performing an inspection on a vehicle without a trailer, the inspection will be marked as Complete if no trailer zones are inspected.
If one or more trailer zones are inspected but not all, the inspection will be marked Incomplete.
If you are adding a trailer that does not have tags, tap and hold on each zone to perform an unverified inspection as above. Unverified inspections on trailers additionally ask you to type in the trailer number for each unverified zone:
The same number must be typed for all zones on the same trailer. If a different number is typed, the system will register it as a second trailer and both "trailers" will be marked Incomplete.
How do I attach a photo to my inspection?
If an inspection requires a photograph of a damaged component, the operator may use the camera built into the tablet to include it with the inspection.
When reporting on the condition of a defect, the operator taps Add Pictures.
If images are already included with this report, Manage Pictures will replace Add Pictures.
It is possible to add up to three (3) photos per defect and a total of five (5) photos per inspection.
- When Take photo is tapped:
- The camera function begins and the operator takes the photograph.
- When taken, the tablet prompts the operator to use the image or re-take the
- When a picture is chosen, the tablet automatically attaches it to the report and asks the operator if they wish to add another.
- When selecting an image from the Gallery:
- The operator is taken to the gallery built into the tablet.
- Photos may be chosen and added as newly taken photographs.
How do I view the inspection history?
- From the EVIR application home screen, tap the History tab on the left side of the screen.
- From this screen, the operator can access previous inspections and filter them by
inspection type and asset.
- If the operator taps the header on the left, the history can be filtered by inspection type, or if the operator taps on the right, the history can be filtered by asset.
- If the operator taps an inspection, it will bring up the particular inspection in which the operator can review the inspection zones and any reported defects, including their repair status.
How do I view the asset profile?
From the EVIR application home screen, tap the asset name to the right of Current asset to bring up the Asset profile. The profile provides the following information:
- Asset Number
- Manufacturer (if provided)
- Asset Tag Number
- VIN (if provided)
- Asset Type (Standard, Trailer, or Dolly)
How do I update the inspection options?
- Ensure the tablet is docked and the engine is running.
