MiFleet gives you visibility to your vehicle locations, vitality, and activity. Be alerted if your vehicle needs repairs. Be alerted if an employee is misusing your time or property. This function allows you to keep a more accurate payroll of driver times. Communicate with your driver, re-route them in an instant (without verbal communication, phones usage can be hazardous to your driver) and physically show your customers where their product is, en route.
What electronically transferred data from electronic logging devices (ELDs) will be retained by Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and other authorized safety officials?
Yes. A driver can use annotations to indicate the beginning and end of a period of authorized personal commercial vehicle use, or yard moves, as well as other special driving categories, such as adverse driving conditions (49 CFR 395.1(b)) or oilfield operations (49 CFR 395.1(d)).
How must a driver be able to access records of duty status (RODS) from an electronic logging device (ELD)?
Since all ELD data file output will be a standard comma-delimited file, a driver may import the data output file into Microsoft Excel, Word, notepad, or other common tools. A driver will also be able to access ELD records through a screen display or a printout, depending on the ELD design.
When will electronic logging device (ELD) system suppliers be able to start registering their ELDs with FMCSA?
This typically happens if the unit has lost cell service for a period of time. If the unit loses cellular data service, it will store all the data points until it regains network connectivity. The jumping around is simply the unit “catching up” and sending its data back to the MiFleet portal very quickly, causing the unit to move around much faster than usual.
If a commercial motor vehicle is equipped with a glider kit that is newer than model year 2000, but the connections and motor vehicle components (such as the engine) are older than model year 2000, is the vehicle exempt from the ELD rule?
No. ELD use is required for vehicles whose VINs reflects a model year of 2000 or newer. The ELD rule requires a reasonable proxy for this data if the engine control module (ECM) or ECM connectivity does not provide it. If the currently installed engine does not support an ECM to obtain or estimate the required vehicle parameters, then the operator must use an ELD that does not rely on ECM connectivity, provided that the accuracy requirements of the final rule are met. See Appendix A to Subpart B of Part 395 section 4.3.1 of the ELD rule for accuracy requirements.
What must a motor carrier do with unassigned driving records from an electronic logging device (ELD)?
A motor carrier must either explain why the time is unassigned or assign the time to the appropriate driver. The motor carrier must retain unidentified driving records for at least six months as a part of its hours of service (HOS) ELD records and make them available to authorized safety officials.
If the driver is using a “telematics” ELD with wireless Web services capabilities, the authorized safety official will give the driver a routing code to assist the official in locating the data once transmitted, and the driver will initiate a web transfer to an FMCSA server to be retrieved by the safety official’s software.
