Intellic to roll out Intelligent Smart Tachograph Europe-wide starting late 2018

Intelligent Smart Tachograph is the new standard for secure and comprehensive control systems in commercial vehicles across a broad range of vehicle system architectures.

Future mobility services support transport and logistics service providers with continuous freight monitoring and optimal use of infrastructure.

New business opportunities are created in the field of digital value creation.

Hausmannstätten near Graz, Austria / Braga, Portugal, December 2017 – Intellic is enhancing its trading and OE business by launching next-generation Smart Tachographs in cooperation with new manufacturing partner Bosch. This partnership has already recorded success – we will be delivering the EFAS 5 Smart Tachograph to the production lines of a global commercial vehicle manufacturer starting late 2018.

Intellic GmbH and Robert Bosch Car Multimedia GmbH have entered into a strategic cooperation to manufacture the current EFAS 4 Digital Tachograph – in addition to the upcoming EFAS 5 Smart Tachograph – to comply with European tachograph regulations. Bosch is up-scaling manufacturing facilities in Braga /Portugal for tachograph deliveries from Q1/2018.

The European Tachograph System for Commercial Vehicles has been the worldwide leading system since 1985. It is mandatory in all EU and EFTA countries – as well as 15 other ENEC countries – according to the AETR agreement (European Agreement concerning the work of Crews of Vehicles engaged in International Road Transport).

To comply with the new EU Tachograph Regulation (EC) No. 799/2016, Smart Tachographs will be mandatory for European goods transport from mid 2019.

The new Tachograph Regulation – and the corresponding next generation of Smart Tachographs – include future-oriented satellite navigation and short-range communication, as well as substantially enhanced telematics and monitoring system interfaces to facilitate compliance with road traffic law.

The Intelligent Smart Tachograph is the key element of a broad range of vehicle system architectures. It sets new standards for secure and comprehensive control systems in commercial vehicles in terms of emission sensor technologies, transport of live animals, EETS road tolling, road safety systems and integration of commercial value-added services. Future mobility services to continuously monitor freight and optimally use infrastructure will efficiently support transport and logistics service providers as well as generate new business opportunities in the field of digital value creation. Efficient data generation from vehicle sensor technologies – and its real-time analysis – will become integral elements of the logistics business.
