BURLINGTON, Ont. – Mobile Communications provider PeopleNet Canada has announced that its eDriver Logs application will comply with the new Hours-of-Service rules for professional truck drivers in Canada.
PeopleNet eDriver Logs runs on the g3 Onboard Computing System from PeopleNet. PeopleNet eDriver Logs automatically records driver Hours-of-Service with minimum input from the driver and displays logs on demand for enforcement personnel.
A driver can display current log information on the g3 computer when necessary – for a transport ministry inspector in Canada or a DOT inspector in the US, for example. Because eDriver Logs takes advantage of g3’s mobile communications capability, a fleet can – at their option – make a diver’s log viewable for inspectors on a Web site. PeopleNet’s real-time, wireless communication also makes log information visible to fleet dispatchers, company compliance officers and other fleet managers. eDriver Logs provides dispatchers the Hours-of-Service information they need to efficiently assign loads to drivers and generates real-time alerts for both driver and management when a driver’s hours approach legal limits.
PeopleNet eDriver Logs requires little input from drivers because it tracks driver hours using functions within the PeopleNet g3 system, including GPS location and PerformX vehicle monitoring software. PeopleNet auto-duty status change will move the driver between driving and on-duty status based on movement and stop thresholds without any driver interaction. International operations are made easier with eDriver Logs, which changes its method of calculation when a driver indicates a border crossing eDriver Logs will even issue an alert when a driver operating under Canadian rules has logged too much time to comply with US rules that allow fewer daily driving hours.
