The Confederation of Organisations in Road Transport Enforcement (CORTE) is one of the largest and most knowledgeable road transport platforms at international level. CORTE is a non-profit organization established to bring together national transport authorities from European and non EU countries having a responsibility and interest in the field of road transport, road security and road safety. National authorities in CORTE collaborate with transport associations and the transport industry. The objective of the Association is to encourage, promote and assist the development and implementation of policies for road transport, road safety and road security in Europe and at international level.

Technical update for the tachograph community

Smart tachograph identification of false sensor event

In some occasions when the vehicle is in not moving and the recording equipment is in hibernation, the system (KITAS4 and SE5000-8 rev A) could experience an intermittent communication issue.

This could generate a “x35”, motion sensor error, in the SE5000-8 “rev A”
The following 3 evidences must be available to identify this specific “x35”
1.Vehicle was not moving
2.Events and Faults Print-out: Duration of the “x35” fault is maximum 00h 02 min. Typical example A: “x35” duration is 1 minute, no driver card in the unit. Typical example B: “x35” duration is 0 minutes, driver card in the unit
3.Power Supply Interruption: No power supply interruption ending immediately before this “x35” error.

Functionality and integrity of the system is not affected if there is evidence for the “x35” as per point 1), 2) and 3) above. Consequently, this means:
•No wrong act of the driver.
•No data loss or data integrity issues.
