The ELD design is such that motor carriers and drivers can comply efficiently with HOS regulations and that motor carriers can make the best use of ELDs and related support systems as their primary means of recording HOS information and ensuring HOS compliance.
Engine information will be shared with the ELD through integral synchronization. The ELD will be tamper-resistant so unauthorized alteration of the captured data will not occur. ELDs, certified by the providers, will meet or exceed the performance requirements.
Transfer of standardized ELD data to authorized safety officials will be accomplished.
