Title eCDL and CSTIMS Integration Project.
Publication Date Nov 2012
Media Count 8p
Personal Author C. Inglis-Smith
Abstract In coordination with the West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles (WVDMV), the Rahall Transportation Institute (RTI) integrated the eCDL program with the CSTIMS, a software program owned by the American Motor Vehicles Administrators Association (AAMVA). eCDL is a multi-phase approach in the development and implementation of an electronic version of the commercial driver license skills testing program which includes real-time testing validation through GPS, imagery, audio, and wireless tests with auditing functions. CSTIMS was built to reduce fraud and automate the administrative processes at the beginning and at the end of the commercial driver license skills testing procedure including scheduling, test site direction, reporting, and fraud alerts. The project integrated the two software programs allowing a schedule test inserted into CSTIMS to be displayed in the eCDL interface in the field. When the CDL test is completed the results are then transmitted back through both organizations servers for display in CSTIMS allowing for a full circle of display, analysis, and tracking.
