A digital tachograph system automatically records vehicle details such as distance and speed traveled. This system can be installed by the vehicle manufacturer or an authorized workshop. A digital tachographs system is fitted in a vehicle. It is a digital version of the analogue tachograph system. Data is stored in the vehicle’s unit memory and on the driver card. This system comprises of a vehicle unit, smart card, and motion sensor. The vehicle unit has a display, a processor, a printer. It is situated in the driver’s area of the cabin.

The digital tachograph system is an important part for international and national road safety and a valuable tool for passengers and freight transport fleet operators. Digital tachograph system was first introduced in Europe. Drivers need to precisely record their activities and maintain a record in Europe. The rising power of computing and its increasing cost effectiveness are increasing pressure to update the traditional tachograph with digital tachograph. Data can be stored in a digital tachograph system by using a company card. Digital tachograph system determine the vehicle’s present driving state and can be used in safety management to avoid accidents. Various companies offers solutions for automotive digital tachographs such as batteries, MCUs/power ICs, and SD cards.

The digital tachograph system is less vulnerable to unlawful acts by users to mislead the data. This system allows for better and easier control of the driver's hours by operators and enforcement authorities. Most of the digital tachographs manufacturers and other software vendors have download devices and software packages that can be used to interpret and download digital tachograph system information.

A digital tachograph system improves enforcement, enhances fair competition, and increases road safety.
