Commercial Vehicle OBE --> Commercial Vehicle Inspector:
driver log inspector display


driver log inspector display (Information Flow): The device used by the commercial vehicle driver to record hours of service can also be viewed by the roadside inspector, possibly in a specific display mode in order to monitor compliance.

Commercial Vehicle OBE (Source Physical Object): The Commercial Vehicle On-Board Equipment (OBE) resides in a commercial vehicle and provides the sensory, processing, storage, and communications functions necessary to support safe and efficient commercial vehicle operations. It provides two-way communications between the commercial vehicle drivers, their fleet managers, attached freight equipment, and roadside officials. A separate 'Vehicle OBE' physical object supports vehicle safety and driver information capabilities that apply to all vehicles, including commercial vehicles. The Commercial Vehicle OBE supplements these general ITS capabilities with capabilities that are specific to commercial vehicles.

Commercial Vehicle Inspector (Destination Physical Object): The people who perform regulatory inspection of Commercial Vehicles in the field. CVO Inspectors support roadside inspection, weighing, and checking of credentials either through automated preclearance or manual methods. The Commercial Vehicle Inspector is an inspection and enforcement arm of regulatory agencies with frequent direct interface with Commercial Vehicles and their Drivers.

Basis Driver log contains PII, personal identification and work conditions and by definition, log of hours worked. This is personal and competitive with regulatory use. It should be available only to the intended recipient. Driver log data is covered under commercial regulatory schemes in most jurisdictions. Forgery of driver log data would have significant competitive implications, not to mention being a regulatory violation. There are alternative mechanisms for exchanging the driver log, though all have a negative impact on the driver's time, which is why MODERATE and not LOW.
