Mack Trucks announced that Geotab Drive for Mack Trucks leverages cloud computing via Geotab to deliver reliable Electronic Logging Data (ELD) and compliance services. 

“Cloud-based data reporting simplifies the process for customers,” said David Pardue, vice president of connected vehicle and contract services for Mack Trucks, “and because it does not require them to purchase a new ELD device or for them to be reliant on hardware devices or a wireless connection, it makes data collection more reliable.” 

The telematics device, factory-installed in every Mack vehicle, sends engine data and positional data to the cloud, which then generates automatic duty status logs. A driver can choose to enter duty status logs manually through the Geotab Drive app on a mobile device, which will then be consolidated into an accurate record of duty status. 

Since there is no pairing process required, such as through Bluetooth or an Ethernet connection, recorded data cannot be lost because the telematics device that is in the vehicle will continue to record data regardless of the connection status of the mobile unit, the OEM stated. Wireless interference also will not impact reporting. 

The cloud enables the recording of Hours of Service, Records of Duty Status and Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports.
