Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket has upgraded the software for its innovative VDO RoadLog Electronic On Board Recorder (EOBR) in time to meet the July 1, 2013 compliance deadline set by FMSCA for Hours Of Service (HOS) Regulations. The final rule includes changes to “Limitations on minimum”, “34-hour restarts” and “Rest breaks”
“Our VDO RoadLog EOBR was designed to be flexible and easily software updatable in anticipation of HOS changes and new DOT compliance requirements. It can readily accept these rule changes. All current VDO RoadLog customers have received the free software updates they will need to meet the new HOS requirements. The update is automatic and seamless as soon as the customer accepts the software deployment,” says segment leader, Alex Capelle.
The VDO RoadLog EOBR offers fleets and independent operators a simple, all-in-one solution for daily log book and other compliance reporting. Drivers can record and report Hours of Service (HOS) as well as other key compliance data quickly and easily. VDO RoadLog is a complete regulatory compliance system that can help carriers and drivers protect their CSA scores, so they can qualify for the most profitable loads and lower insurance rates.
VDO RoadLog features a built-in printer that creates an instant paper report of daily log book data so drivers can get through roadside inspections quickly and be back on the road faster. In addition to delivering automated HOS logs with GPS accuracy, VDO RoadLog can also provide other key compliance data such as Vehicle Inspection and Repair Maintenance (DVIR).
VDO RoadLog installs in as little as 15 minutes. It can automatically track the driver’s time in one of four categories: On-duty, Driving, Sleeper Berth or Off-duty. It provides a warning if allowable limits will be exceeded. At the completion of a trip, the driver can download the data, which includes hours of service, vehicle inspections, shipping document and asset updates, to a Driver Key (USB).
The VDO RoadLog EOBR program is supported by a comprehensive library of informative, how-to and training videos covering a wide variety of topics, including HOS Compliance, EOBR Mandate Solution, EOBR Buyers Guide, EOBR installation and tips for law enforcement. All of the videos are available at www.vdoroadlog.comand can be viewed from laptops, tablets and mobile phones.
