Hardly any other instrument in the commercial vehicle cockpit has changed everyday life on Europe’s roads the same way the tachograph has. It has made competition in transport logistics fairer, working conditions for drivers safer, and the management of fleets more efficient. And it has been doing so for 100 years. Because that is how far back the history of the VDO tachograph goes. Its roots lie in the Black Forest, or more precisely in Villingen, Germany, where 1,300 of our Continental colleagues are still manufacturing, among other products, the latest models of the tachograph, the DTCO. It was here that Dr. Herbert Kienzle, the father of the VDO tachographs, invented the Autorex clock at Kienzle Uhrenfabrik.
