Polish Digital Tachograph System (STC) is a system that uses new technologies to ensure security and integrity of data describing drivers’ working time. The system is less susceptible to records tampering than the old analog system. It allows easier and more effective control of drivers' working hours by their employers and by control authorities.
The basic assumptions of the digital tachograph system are based on the following principles:
road safety improvement,
compliance with social legislation relating to drivers' working time,
augmentation of competition between transport companies.
The latest generation of digital tachograph system opens up new opportunities in fleet management to transportation carriers.
