Do your truck or van drivers have enough driving hours left to complete urgent jobs legally? It’s a common question for traffic planners, and tachograph analysis specialist Tachodisc reckons it has come up with an answer.

It’s a telematics-based solution, using data gathered from vehicles in real time to calculate remaining drivers’ hours and present them to traffic management staff by means of a live online feed.

Rather than attempting to expand into telematics in its own right, Tachodisc is working with an existing specialist, CMS SupaTrak. The two companies are promoting the resulting system as TachoMax, in which CMS captures the data, and Tachodisc uses its analysis software to work out remaining drivers’ hours, moment by moment.

According to Guy Reynolds, Tachodisc’s technical director:  “We’ve combined our in-depth knowledge of the tachograph with our technical software expertise to digitally clone the calculation of time in a tachograph.” The company says this means the data can be used for managing tachograph analysis and verified remote downloading.

The combined product also offers the usual features of a telematics package, including driver behaviour analysis and vehicle tracking.
