Electronic Logging

What is the ELD Rule?

The Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) have issued legislation for increasing the accuracy of monitoring Hours Of Service (HOS) for Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMVs) driven in the USA. In order to correcty record important information like Miles Travelled and Engine Hours all commercial vehicles must now all have an Electronic Logging Device (ELD) that can record this data.

All commercial vehicles driven in the USA must have an on-board ELD by December 18th, 2017.


How can you meet the ELD deadline?

OBD Experts have created a specialized piece of firmware that can enable ELD tool manufacturers to comply quickly with the ELD ruling. The software is interrupt driven and written in well-commented and fully documented 'C'. It is available under license as source code.

Licensing source code means companies can adapt it to meet their current and future needs without needing to rely on third party developers. It uses common peripherals such as a CAN interface and a timer and can be easily adapted to connect to a customer's chosen interfacing method.

Our firmware requests all of the mandated ELD data from the vehicle in the fastest, safest and most efficient way possible.
