1. EROAD's in-vehicle hardware, the Ehubo records, stores and continuously transmits encrypted data via the cellular network
2. Vehicle information is processed by EROAD’s application server and made available to users via a secure website, called Depot
3. Secure, bank-grade payment gateway enables EROAD to retrieve and maintain motor carrier records, and support carriers to file and pay their weight-mile tax obligations
A core element of EROAD’s system is its electronic distance recorder, the Ehubo, which sits within the vehicle and records, stores and continuously transmits encrypted data via the cellular network. The Ehubo captures distance, location, route and a variety of additional operational data from the vehicle. EROAD’s Ehubo is specifically designed to be tamper-evident, operate at a wide range of temperatures and consume very little energy.
The Ehubo measures distance traveled with a high degree of accuracy, using a combination of internal and external sensors including vehicle data, GPS and micro-electrical-mechanical systems (MEMs).
Vehicle information received from the Ehubo is processed by EROAD’s application server and made available to users via a secure website, called Depot, from which the information can be viewed, saved and exported or downloaded.
Depot provides customers with a user friendly application to pay and manage their weight-mile tax obligations and engage with EROAD’s additional fleet management and commercial services.
EROAD has built an entirely new kind of technology platform to support the commercial transport sector – designed from the ground up to meet the highest performance, financial and evidential standards.
Our commitment to meeting strict technical and security requirements translates into high service levels and security for our customers’ records and data. System performance and redundancy is a key focus, and we achieve an industry-leading 99.9% service uptime.
EROAD is trusted to undertake integration with government agencies to enable us to electronically retrieve records and to complete transactions on behalf of customers.
The EROAD system undergoes regular audits by regulatory bodies in the markets we operate in; such as the Oregon Secretary of State.
We regularly conduct independent security testing and our policies and procedures are aligned to internationally accepted control objectives and practices for privacy, security and information systems. These include FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) 140-2 Level 3, Common Criteria EAL2+ ALC_FLR.1and United States Government Accountability Office Audit and Security Guidelines.
EROAD Electronic Logging Device
To ensure that our ELD solution is FMCSA compliant EROAD employed the services of transportation research and engineering experts, PIT Group, to provide third-party verification of our ELD solution. While ELD suppliers can self-certify their technologies, given that the FMCSA does not require independent verification, EROAD elected to take this approach because we realize the added value of unbiased verification.
PIT Group’s methodology was to test and document results against the FMCSA’s test procedures and mimic the approach that would be taken by the FMCSA as if the ELD provider is subject to an investigation or audit.
After thorough and rigorous testing and verification of the EROAD ELD according to the FMCSA’s test procedure, PIT Group can confirm that EROAD’s ELD meets the FMCSA’s functional requirements.
EROAD Electronic Weight Mile Tax
The EROAD solution received an independent unqualified opinion by the Oregon Secretary of State Audit Division. The purpose of the comprehensive performance audit was to provide motor carriers and the Oregon Department of Transport with an independent assessment of the EROAD electronic highway tax solution.
The state government audit concluded that the EROAD technology platform was accurate and reliable, and reduced the burden of record keeping by helping motor carriers prepare and submit tax reports. The independent audit also found that the EROAD data, reports and records were more accurate than the paper-based records compiled and filed by carriers.
