In order to increase the safety of commercial vehicles and detect defects at an early stage, a pre-departure safety check is mandatory in many European countries before the start of the journey. Continental is now bringing its Continental Verified Inspection (CVI) system, which has been proven and patented in the USA, to Europe. The digital system ensures greater efficiency, safety, and transparency for commercial vehicle fleets.
The digital solution consists of a set with an NFC tag (Near Field Communication) for vehicle identification, up to ten individually placeable tags for the inspection process, and a smartphone app for acceptance by the driving personnel and archiving of the collected data on vehicle condition. To take into account the individual specifications on the European market, the departure checks can be adapted to all types of vehicles using the Inspection Builder function, so that each fleet can create its own individual inspection process. That way, workflows that have nothing to do with departure checks can also be included.
