Hardware

A core element of EROAD’s system is its electronic distance recorder, the Ehubo, which sits within the vehicle and records, stores and continuously transmits encrypted data via the cellular network. The Ehubo captures distance, location, route and a variety of additional operational data from the vehicle. EROAD’s Ehubo is specifically designed to be tamper-evident, operate at a wide range of temperatures and consume very little energy.

The Ehubo measures distance travelled with a high degree of accuracy, using a combination of internal and external sensors including the vehicle’s odometer pulse, GPS satellites and accelerometers.

Security

EROAD has built an entirely new kind of technology platform to support the commercial transport sector – designed from the ground up to meet the highest performance, financial and evidential standards.

Our commitment to meeting strict technical and security requirements translates into high service levels and security for our customers’ records and data. System performance and redundancy is a key focus, and we achieve an industry-leading 99.9% service uptime.

EROAD is trusted to undertake integration with government agencies to enable us to electronically retrieve records and to complete transactions on behalf of customers.

The EROAD system undergoes regular audits by regulatory bodies in the markets we operate in; such as the Oregon Secretary of State.

We regularly conduct independent security testing and our policies and procedures are aligned to internationally accepted control objectives and practices for privacy, security and information systems. These include FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) 140-2 Level 3, Common Criteria EAL2+ ALC_FLR.1and United States Government Accountability Office Audit and Security Guidelines.

Approvals

Ehubo and Tubo products are approved by the Secretary for Transport to be an electronic distance recorder pursuant to the Road User Charges Act 2012. This means that trucks and trailers fitted with EROAD hardware are no longer required to have mechanical hubodometers fitted.

Ehubo and Tubo products are approved by the Secretary for Transport to display an approved electronic form of RUC licence pursuant to the Road User Charge Amendment Regulations (No 2) 2009. This means that trucks and trailers fitted with the alternative hardware no longer have to display a paper RUC licence.

EROAD is approved as Industry Agent by NZ Transport Agency under which it provides road user charge licensing services. This means that EROAD is legally able to use the NZTA logo and clients can purchase RUC online through EROAD web portal.
