DAF introduces remote tacho system

15 January 2020

DAF Trucks is introducing a new Remote Tacho Download function to its DAF Connect fleet management platform.

The feature will allow operators to read, store and analyse the memory of driver cards and tachographs online and in real time.

This will allow them to maintain an accurate tacho administration system and to save time.

The new feature will be added as an app to the DAF Connect dashboard, giving instant access to information including driving times and rest periods.

DAF Connect Manager Marketing, Jorg Wijnands, said, “Maintaining an accurate record of driver cards and the tachograph’s memory is very labour intensive and prone to error. You can end up paying thousands of euros for each instance of inaccurate bookkeeping.”

“With our system the transport operator can also monitor its trucks and drivers constantly to ensure that they are complying with driving and rest period guidelines and to intervene where necessary. This offers a greater sense of security in terms of road safety and the risk of fines.”
