Geotab Registers ELD Solution with FMCSA
Geotab's electronic logging device (ELD) solution, Geotab Cloud ELD, is now registered with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the telematics provider announced.
Geotab Cloud ELD is a compliance management platform for monitoring and recording Hours of Service (HOS) for fleets seeking to comply with the ELD mandate that's slated to take effect Dec. 18. The FMCSA maintains a list of ELD providers and their products.
The Geotab Cloud ELD platform connects the Geotab GO telematics device with a mobile device running the Geotab Drive app (available for Android and iOS) through a secured cloud-based server operating the MyGeotab fleet management software.
Unlike hard-wired or Bluetooth-paired solutions that use a time-based approach with periodic status checks, the GO device continuously records and transmits data to the cloud-based program to effectively monitor and record HOS, including Records of Duty Status (RODS) and Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRS).
Geotab Cloud ELD, which doesn't require an in-vehicle pairing process, enables vehicle inspection reports, IFTA support, routing, risk management, accident reconstruction, driver safety, and third-party add-in solutions including cameras, temperature sending and tire pressure monitoring.
