    Manual Driver Identification Methods

    Vehicle Selection by Driver

    Drivers can select a vehicle in the Driver App and connect to the Vehicle Gateway via Bluetooth or USB cable connection. All trip data is automatically associated with the connected driver. Here is a detailed article on how to connect to the Vehicle Gateway via Bluetooth or USB cable connection.

    This method is recommended for drivers who are subject to ELD regulations and are required to connect to the Vehicle Gateway before driving.

    Permanent Driver assignment by Fleet Admin

    Fleet Admins can permanently assign a driver to a vehicle. All trips for that vehicle will automatically be assigned to the driver. Here is a detailed article on how to assign a driver to a vehicle.

    This method can only be used for drivers who are not subject to ELD regulation. Drivers who are subject to ELD regulation must select a vehicle in the Driver App and connect to the Vehicle Gateway before driving.

    Trip assignment by Fleet User

    For drivers who forget to select a vehicle in the Driver App, or do not use the Driver App, fleet users can manually assign an unidentified trip to the driver. If the driver is operating in ELD mode, they will have to approve the edit to their log. Follow these steps to assign an unidentified trip to a driver.

    Trip claiming driver

    Drivers who forgot or are unable to connect to the Vehicle Gateway will see trips recorded in an unidentified state upon reconnecting to the same vehicle next time. They can claim or reject these unidentified trips using the Driver App. Here is how you can accept or reject an unidentified trip as a driver.

    AI-based Driver Identification Methods

    Driver App Data

    If a driver forgets to select a vehicle in the Driver App before driving, Motive can automatically identify and assign trips to the correct driver using AI that analyzes historical data, including previous vehicle and driver mobile location data, inspection reports, previously assigned drivers, and last known drivers.

    This method is most effective for those who regularly use the Motive Driver App.

    Face Match (facial recognition)

    Motive can automatically identify and assign trips to the correct driver using AI-based facial recognition. Fleet admins can create facial profiles of their drivers to enable Face Match.

    This method requires a dual-facing AI Dashcam.
