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.
