Remote tachograph download

Download digital tachograph files without leaving your office to save hours in administration time.
You spend a lot of time collecting data from the tachograph driver cards and from the tachograph mass memory from every one of the heavy vehicles in your company’s fleet. It’s time for your company to find an easier way to do this and free up time for some more profitable work.

How we can help you

In Europe, operators of heavy vehicles are required to download the data from their tachograph driver cards and from the tachograph mass memory of each vehicle, and then to retain that data for at least one year in order to make it available to an enforcement officer if requested.

With Remote tachograph download, it is now possible for you to download tachograph files remotely, from both the tachograph’s mass memory and the drivers’ tachograph cards, without leaving the office and with the advantage of keeping the files safe at Frotcom’s Data Centre.

Using the same technology, automatic driver identification is also possible by reading the number of the driver card inserted in the tachograph. This will save you the need to install additional driver identification systems.

How it works

The tachograph company card is inserted in a smart card reader that is connected to a PC at the company’s office. 

In the vehicle, the tachograph is connected to Frotcom’s GPS tracking device. 
You configure Frotcom to automatically download the tachograph files and the driver’s card files according to a certain schedule. Different periods can be defined for the tachograph’s data and the driver’s card data.
At the scheduled time, Frotcom contacts the tachograph and requests the data to be downloaded automatically. 
The GPS tracking device obtains authorisation to download the data from the tachograph, by retrieving the company card data.
The authorisation is sent to the tracking device, which retrieves the requested data from the tachograph or from the inserted driver card. 
The tachograph or driver card data is uploaded to the Frotcom Data Centre.
The data is then made available to you, through three possible methods:
  • Sent automatically (by email) to your office; 
  • Downloaded manually by an operator using Frotcom’s web interface; or
  • Retrieved automatically by a dedicated card reader application.
