The mandate will make ELDs a requirement for drivers, as opposed to the current system of paper logs to track hours of service compliance. Once the rule is finalized, all drivers will be mandated to comply by 2019. In addition to ELDs, mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets will be allowed to be used, as long as the system as a whole meets ELD requirements, including a hardwired connection to the truck’s engine.

To help with understanding, PeopleNet has provided the following graphic on the timeline of the ELD mandate:
