VDO RoadLog EOBR Helps Fleets and Independent Operators Protect CSA Scores

The new VDO RoadLog Electronic On Board Recorder (EOBR) developed by Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket, a leading global supplier of systems and components to automobile and truck manufacturers and the world leader in Electronic On Board Recording technology, offers fleets and independent operators a simple, all-in-one solution for daily log book and other compliance reporting.

VDO RoadLog EOBR allows drivers to record and report Hours of Service (HOS) as well as other key compliance data quickly and easily. It’s 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.

The VDO RoadLog is the most affordable electronic log on the market. There are no monthly fees, long term contracts or smartphones required. This innovative compliance tool 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 and easier than with any other electronic log. In addition to delivering automated HOS logs with GPS accuracy, Roadlog can also provide other key compliance data such as Vehicle Inspection and Repair Maintenance (DVIR).

According to Alexis Capelle, segment leader, Tachograph, Telematics and Services- Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket Business Unit NAFTA, “EOBR is happening now and will soon be legally required. Our new VDO RoadLog Electronic On Board Recorder sets the standard for affordability, cost-effectiveness and overall simplicity, and will play a key role in helping fleets and independent operators to protect and improve their CSA scores.”

Keeping drivers on the move

VDO RoadLog is easy to use and 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 and Off-duty, and 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).

RoadLog’s software is flexible and up-dateable to meet anticipated DOT compliance requirements. Free upcoming software updates will include reporting on IFTA mileage and IRP miles and compliance with rules for Canada, Alaska and oil field.
