1st September 2019
From the 15th June 2019 any newly registered trucks will be legally required to be fitted with the latest generation smart tachograph system. This is the most significant change to tachographs since the introduction of digital tachographs back in 2006.
What is a smart tachograph?
Smart tachographs are the new generation of on-board mandatory digital recorders to enforce the EU legislation on professional drivers driving and resting times. The new features make full use of advanced digital technologies such as satellite positioning (GNSS), short range communication for road enforcers (DSRC) and interconnection with other telematics applications (such as smart parking or pay as you drive apps), through a harmonised Intelligent Transport System interface.
