Smart Tachograph Giving More Transparency In The Cockpit

Over time the digital tachograph has become more intelligent, and from mid-2019 several new features will be mandatory for all newly registered in-scope vehicles.

The standardised optional ITS interface also provides full support for fleet management solutions.

Drivers will find Drivers Hours Regulations compliance much easier, with data as displayed on their smartphones.

The new technology will allow:
• Positional data monitoring via global navigational
  satellite system.
• Roadside inspection officers to wirelessly read
  out a dataset from the digital tachograph of
  passing vehicles, to enable non-compliant
  vehicles to be stopped and checked.
  Companies and drivers who comply with all the
  legal regulations can expect fewer roadside
• New driver cards for digital tachographs,
  incorporating a new encryption technique.
  The new cards will be compatible with older
• Enhanced protection of driver personal data,
  which may only be transmitted from a vehicle if
  the driver has consented to this action.

VDO will be running a Tachograph Fleet Seminar on 10th July 2018 please email for more information.
