Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket’s VDO RoadLog now combines an electronic onboard recorder and compliance reporting in a single solution.

VDO RoadLog EOBR allows drivers to record and report hours of service (HOS) as well as other key compliance data quickly and easily, the company said.

There are no monthly fees, long-term contracts or smartphones required for the device. It features a built-in printer that creates an instant paper report of daily log book data so drivers can get through roadside inspections quickly. 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).

VDO RoadLog installs in as little as 15 minutes and automatically tracks the driver’s time in one of four categories: on-duty, driving, sleeper berth and 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 USB driver key.

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 operations.
