PROFESSIONAL EXPERTISE OF DATA
FROM DIGITAL TACHOGRAPH AND DRIVER`S CARD
Digital tachograph (DT) records all data of vehicle movement and driver`s activities (when the driver card is inserted in DT) and memorize it in internal memory of DT and memory of driver`s card.
All memorized data are object of traffic and police inspection with adequat equipment for downloading and analyse memory of DT and driver`s card.
Generaly, for data and activitiy analyses, all inspectors use some of wide-spread softwares (tacho-speed, tis-web etc.) which gives them possibilities to notice and reveal infringements related to AETR or EU legislation (561/2006) for driving hours, rest and working time in road transport.
Techincally, inspector firstly downloads data and then, using software instaled in computer or orther gadget, analyzes data and creates list of infingements. This list is usually created in pdf format report and represents key evidence for initiation of court proceedings or the imposion of fines.
Key question or doubt is next: „CAN THIS REPORT CONTAINS RELEVANT EVIDENCE AND WHAT IS THE CHANCE OF DRIVER AND/OR CARRIER TO OPPOSE TO THIS AND TO TRY TO PROVE FAULT OR MISUNDERSTAND OF REPRESENTED PDF REPORT.“
Answer is very simple: THERE IS NO CHANCE FOR IT.
When thoroughly and carrefully read pdf report of faults, you can not see or notice anything except of shown red coloured numbers and letters of infringement. But basic data and procedrues of its analyse and the methodology for finding infringements will be unavailable for you. So you will not be able to be an equal partner in inspection or court process and get your right to defens or to oppose to this report.
What is the solution?
First of all, you have to know that all data is memorized in DDD files (.ddd is extension for all files and data in digital tachograph and driverş card). Those ddd files contain source data (for vehicle and driver) that are also available to be seen, but by using special software (EVO software).
EVO software gives us possibility for professional expertize of all DT data and driver`s activities from DT by analyzing card and DT memories.
Having on mind proverb: „One Look Is Worth А Thousand Words“ we show you structural content of data that is possible to find in source files:
In part Driver Activity Data is possible to see all driver`s activities in source form sorted by dates and divided into 5 kind of activities (Drive – driving time, Work – other working, Avail – availability, Rest – pauses and rest time and ? – unknown time) including refferent mileage in km.
From this database contained in ddd file, we could enter in detailed sequencial search and analyse, for instance, only drivnig status or card status or kind and duration of activity, as it is shown on next picture:
Notice: All time data has recorded related to UTC time (London time zone).
So we are able to analyze all DT data, to compare it with inspector report and to confirm or deny found infringements.
