|Summary||Emulator of the digital tachograph (by ACTIA) on a desktop PC with Microsoft Windows|
|Customer||Precept Media (France), ACTIA (France)|
|Components||An ActiveX module containing the original "firmware" in emulated hardware, which makes the emulator behave identically to the true apparatus|
|Description|| The emulator runs the original "firmware" of the digital tachograph, with the exception of the hardware drivers. These drivers are all re-implemented to either use standard PC equipment (such as a common desktop printer instead of the special purpose ticket printer) or emulate the tachograph-specific equipment. Thus, the emulator behaves exactly like the real apparatus, which is critical for the training of the truck drivers who will use the device. |
Through its ActiveX interface, the emulator can be embedded into almost any development system. It has, for example, been used with Visual Basic and EGO for Windows.
