Abstract

On September 1, 2004, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) requesting comments on potential amendments to its regulations concerning the use of on-board recording devices to document compliance with the Federal hours-of-service rules. The following technical review focuses on aspects of the Volpe Center report that relate to wireless and wired electronic data storage and transfer technology, electronic position location, and electronic identification of drivers. The review addresses specific issues that relate to implementation of Electronic On-Board Recorders.
