TCA type-approval involves a functional and technical assessment of performance outcomes contained in the IVU specification, and an assessment of the organisation’s business standing to support the technology and meet customer service and support.

BlackBox Control is a Certified Service Provider, and already supports numerous applications available through the National Telematics Framework, including:

“Our new type-approved IVU has the capability to support new applications and features being offered through the Framework, including Intelligent Mass functionality, which is being rolled-out during 2020,” said Mark Langford, General Manager of BlackBox Control.

“Obtaining type-approval for our new IVU demonstrates our commitment to helping our transport customers to become safer and more productive. It follows September’s announcement where BlackBox Control became the first provider certified for the new Hill Descent Monitoring (HDM) application.”

A list of type-approved IVUs is available on the TCA website.
