Kansas, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, Virginia, and Utah are now piloting expedited in-station e-Inspections at select weigh stations. The program is currently operating in a phase one deployment that expedites CSA-crediting Level III inspections in station. Drivewyze will deliver more information on phase two of the program that builds toward a vision of an in-motion Level VIII inspection in the coming months. Phase one is already delivering material benefits to participating agencies and fleets and is a solid step forward in Drivewyze’s goal to revolutionize roadside inspections.
With e-Inspection, carrier and driver credentials, as well as HOS data, are transferred wirelessly from the Drivewyze platform, which is embedded in the vehicle’s onboard Electronic Logging Device (ELD). Officers don’t need to collect this information manually, nor do they need to manually enter the information into multiple screening and inspection systems.
“E-Inspection streamlines the officer’s workload by automatically entering, screening, and pre-populating inspection forms, allowing officers to focus on compliance,” explained Heath. “This dramatically reduces the time and errors that can happen with traditional roadside inspections.”
Any fleets subscribed to Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass service can request to participate in the e-Inspection pilot project. Drivewyze’s ELD partners are continuing with software updates so fleets can opt-in to this option. Currently, fleets using Platform Science and Geotab platforms can access and utilize e-Inspections, and Trimble support is currently in development.
