Abstract: The Digital Tachograph is a regulated application to monitor the driving time of drivers of commercial vehicles above 3.5 tons in Europe. In February 2014, a new regulation was approved to provide new features to the Digital Tachograph including the provision of wireless communications for targeted checks by law enforcers on the road. The proposed wireless communication technology is based on the Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) at 5.8 GHz (or CEN-DSRC). Even if the DSRC standard is widely deployed (e.g., tolling application) and various studies have already been performed, the use cases defined for the new version of the Digital Tachograph can be quite different from the existing ones. This paper proposes a feasibility study for using CEN DSRC for successfully transmitting and receiving Digital Tachograph for targeted checks. The potential scenarios are described and the Layer 1 and 2 aspects of the CEN-DSRC are extensively treated. The analysis is in terms of understanding the achievable range in communication given the knowledge of the wireless channel on the roads, the corresponding bit error rate analysis and the time delay in completing a transaction between the DSRC module (part of the DT device) installed in the truck and the remote reader used by the law enforcers.
