What is an electronic logging device (ELD)?

An ELD is technology that automatically records a driver’s driving time. This allows easier, more accurate hours-of-service recordkeeping. An ELD monitors a vehicle’s engine to capture data on whether the engine is running, whether the vehicle is moving, miles driven, and duration of engine operation (engine hours). ELD manufacturers must certify that their products meet the technical standards in the ELD rule.
