Certifying StatementThe Shotgun Rider product has been extensively tested during both development and field testing to verify that it complies with the FMCSA regulations. System Overview: The Shotgun Rider product is a complete system that includes the Shotgun Rider unit, a cable to the vehicle CAN interface, a driver’s generic Android Tablet or Cell-phone, and an Android Application. The Android Tablet or Cellphone only provides a User Interface and GPS positions to the unit. No cellular or internet connection is required at any time to operate the Shotgun Rider system. In addition, in the event that the tablet or phone is lost or stolen, the Shotgun Rider system continues to operate storing HOS information for an Unidentified Driver while notifying the driver through visual and optional audio alert that a driver has not been logged into the system. More importantly, a new phone or tablet can be switched to at any time by the driver to operate the unit. This is due to the unique capability of Shotgun Rider system where all account information, log entries, malfunction data, and other unique information is stored on the Shotgun Rider unit itself in non-volatile memory. In addition, the Shotgun Rider unit has an internal real time clock capability that maintains accurate timing in the absence of a tablet or phone; and with no reliance on an easily hacked vehicle clock time. Development Testing: This has included extensive electronic testing of the MTN Shotgun Rider custom circuit board, packaging and cabling. The complete Shotgun Rider unit firmware was tested extensively during development and in Q/A testing based on the test procedures outlined by the FMCSA. The Shotgun Rider Android Application that runs on a generic android device was tested extensively on many Android devices during development and Q/A testing. Field Testing: The Shotgun Rider system has been tested on 18-wheel trucks for hundreds of hours of both interstate and intrastate trucking operations. This testing was used to verify the system operation, driver user interfaces, positioning, and HOS recording. Driver feedback from field testing was used to refine and improve the ease of use of the product. Log File Transfer Testing: Multiple secure Memory Sticks have been tested with the unit to verify that log files can be written to them. Test Log File transfers have been successfully made to the FMCSA Web Server. In addition, log files have been tested using the Log File Validator provided on the FMCSA website to verify that they are correctly formatted. Certified by: Brian S.
