Fleet Driver Authentication Functional Area


'Fleet Driver Authentication' collects and stores driver identification records including driver issued PINS and/or individual driver biometric measurements. It manages the storage of driver PINs, data from a driver identification card, and/or biometric measurements for authorized drivers on individual commercial vehicles.

Based on information reported by the commercial vehicle, it will determine if the driver is authorized, and notify the Commercial Vehicle Manager when an unauthorized driver is detected. The Commercial Vehicle Manager may override the disable vehicle action. When an unauthorized driver is detected and the system is not overridden, it will issue a message to the commercial vehicle to safely disable the vehicle. If an unauthorized driver is detected, it will send the Emergency Management Center an alert that includes: incident location, current location of the CV, Vehicle ID, Carrier ID, Driver ID, CV Credentials information, and cargo manifest (if known).
