Geotab’s Collision Reconstruction Add-In allows you to view, analyze, and interpret collision data from Geotab tracking devices. It finds and analyzes known collisions for a given time period and displays all relevant information into a single, easy to read document.
This tool is helpful for fleet managers and administrators to view the position and the point of impact of any collision in their fleet, and provides customized links to view the speed profile, RPM, and accelerometer data during the collision.

Features & Benefits
- Reconstruction based on a larger time period
- All-in-one view of an accident without having to sort through and analyze separate sections of MyGeotab
- Point of Impact calculated based on the acceleration values received*
- Simple customized links to go straight into speed profile, RPM graph and accelerometer graph
- Fast and easy to use solution for analyzing collision data
- Optimizing and simplifying complex accelerometer data
- Provides critical data to improve logistics and decision-making
- Point of impact can provide a better understanding of the overall accident as it occurred
- Increasing overall fleet safety by reducing potential recurring behavior in drivers
- Reduces potential accidents
Once the Collision Reconstruction Add-In has been successfully added to your database, follow the steps below in MyGeotab. Note: Users set to "Drive App user" or "Nothing" cannot run the add-in :
- Look up the collision in the Trips history and view it on the Map. Record the date, time, and location. Gather information about what the vehicle was doing at the time. Note any exceptions.
- Review the Collisions & Log Data to pinpoint the collision-level event. Look for large g-force events. Then read up and down the log to understand what was happening before and after the collision, such as how fast the driver was going. Look for sharp acceleration or deceleration, either forward and backwards, side to side, or even up and down.
- Check the Engine Measurements and Accelerometer graph for more clues on the direction of impact. Read forwards and backwards around the time of the event.
- View the Speed Profile and RPM graph to see the speed of the vehicle before and after the collision and check for possible aggressive driving and driver reaction.
