Digital tachographs are compulsory in EU member states as well as countries covered by the AETR rules. In Germany, every vehicle used for commercial purposes that weighs more than 3.5 metric tons or has more than nine seats must be equipped with a digital tachograph. Our digital tachographs in the proven DTCO® series accurately display driver and vehicle data. They are at the heart of modern fleet management.
The seamless and proper documentation of recorded driver and vehicle data ensures that work, social and traffic regulations are complied with and helps you in the event of potential liability issues.
Regardless of how big your fleet is, we provide the right solution for storing and archiving your vehicle and driver data. For better orientation, we differentiate between tools for manual and automatic storage.
Automatic storage involves the transfer of driver and vehicle data via Wi-Fi or a SIM card without the need for further action. Manual storage requires you to enter the driver card or download key to be read into the device. The graphic below gives an overview of the many different options.
The new DTCO® 4.0 was developed for the latest market requirements of the European Union. Thanks to new architecture and an optimized design, the DTCO® 4.0 is even more powerful but consumes less energy.
The keys to simple mobile data downloads: easy to operate, they provide maximum data security for drivers, fleets and authorities.
Data from the digital tachograph and the driver card is transferred flexibly, securely and conveniently via GPRS (mobile network) – at any time and from anywhere in Europe.
The VDO SmartTerminal makes it possible to read and store driver and vehicle data in TIS-Web® , for example, by entering the driver card. The VDO SmartTerminal can be set up anywhere.
What’s more, our modular TIS-Web® fleet management system enables you to use this data to identify new opportunities, such as better turnaround times and higher utilization.
To ensure that your tachograph always records perfectly, comply with the legally required test intervals. What’s more, the digital tachographs in the DTCO® 1381 series automatically remind you of upcoming test dates.
The TIS-Web® Fleet app guides the driver through the pre-departure checks step by step using a set of lists. The inspection report, including photos, is then transferred to head office via the app. Drivers can use the TIS-Web® Fleet app if TIS-Web® is already used at their company.
TIS-Web® is a modular fleet management system that provides a range of services for efficient fleet management – not only for drivers.
The VDO SmartTerminal enables you to perform convenient checks on driver licenses. For this purpose, the driver’s license is equipped with a seal with an RFID chip. All the driver then needs to do is insert his or her driver’s license into the reader. By using the RFID Tag ID, references about driver and driving license could be created for example by using TIS-Web.
With TIS-Web® DMM 5.0, you not only meet the legal requirements for archiving vehicle and driver data. Clearly prepared information keeps an eye on all working, driving, resting and remaining driving times of your drivers. The intelligent software also reminds you when drivers and company cards need to be renewed or driver's licenses checked.
Intelligent tachographs such as the DTCO 4.0 must be installed in all vehicles which will be registered on or after 15 June 2019 for the first time in an EU member state. Along with this comes the duty of companies to train staff on these devices. We provide appropriate training courses for drivers, fleet managers, authorities, repair shops, systems developers and vehicle manufacturers across the country. There you and your employees can be trained about the latest technology and legal regulations.
