Zonar announced that its Electronic Logging Device (ELD), Zonar Logs, successfully completed testing with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to confirm data transfer to an authorized safety official’s laptop. The successful test meets the ELD mandate requirement for drivers to be able to transmit log data electronically while roadside to FMCSA’s ELD monitoring software (eRODS) that state and federal law enforcement will utilize when the mandate goes into effect on Dec. 18.
Zonar Logs meets the FMCSA’s requirements for electronic transfer for hour of service log data to law enforcement. Zonar’s ELD was able to transfer eight days of electronic logs successfully to the roadside inspector while roadside, with the data populating automatically in our monitoring system.
The recent testing took place on Dec. 5. Zonar participated with the FMCSA on an ELD Data Transfer Demo Training exercise at the Dumfries, Virginia Motor Carrier Service Center (weigh station) located at (I-95) mile marker 154N. The purpose of the exercise was to test a carrier’s capability, while in a controlled environment, to electronically transfer ELD data by way of telematics transfer via wireless web service to law enforcement.
