A. ELDs are required to record the following data elements at regular intervals:

  • Date
  • Time
  • Location information
  • Engine hours
  • Vehicle miles
  • Identification information for the driver, authenticated user, vehicle, and motor carrier.

An ELD must automatically switch to driving mode once the vehicle is moving up to a set speed threshold of five miles per hour. The in-motion status cannot be configured for greater than five miles per hour. The vehicle will be considered stopped once the speed falls to zero and stays there for three consecutive seconds.
