DEVELOPMENT OF A DRIVING DATA RECORDER FOR COMMERCIAL VEHICLES AND ITS APPLICATIONS

Generally, data loggers are used for the purpose of investigating on the driving conditions of vehicles which are under some research and development works. Hino Motors, Ltd., in co-operation with Sawafuji Electric Co., Ltd., has developed an in-vehicle data logger, however, which can easily be installed by customers on vehicles for use in actual operation in the field. Through the production of printed digital data, graphs, and tables, the logger provides useful information on fuel economy for both drivers and managers of fleets, as well as valuable information regarding maintenance schedules. The logger, named the Hino Driving Data Recorder, has been delivered to all Hino-dealers in Japan and is receiving very positive feedback from customers. Specifications and details of this data recorder and actual examples of its applications on buses are described in this paper.
