Tachodisc offer an update regarding the latest in new digital smart tachographs!

In 2018 a new smart digital tachograph will be introduced, which is not that long in the scheme of things, so businesses need to start preparing for the changes. Already, the technical specifications are being drafted and are expected to be endorsed and adopted by the end of 2015.

To get ready for this here are some of the technological changes to be expected:

One of the major changes will be the amount of information that can be transmitted remotely between vehicles and roadside enforcement offices without the need to stop a vehicle. Checks will include security breaches, interruption to power supply, sensor fault, motion data error, vehicle motion conflict, driving without a driver’s card, time adjustment data and calibration data. It is also worth highlighting here that remote roadside checks will only be for these basic compliance checks NOT to facilitate downloading of data.

Another addition will be the integration of GPS, which is intended to capture data for at least the start and end of the working periods and after three hours of accumulated time. At the moment, the tachograph only records the country you are travelling, so UK to UK. With the changes, enforcement officers will know where the vehicle has been and what it is doing.

Also, when the final technical specification is announced later this year, weight sensors may be included in the digital tachograph to monitor overloading activity.
