Freight and passenger transport operators must converts the operation records of digital operation recording device (Digital Tachograph) that is mounted on their vehicle in a certain format, and report them to governmental agencies. However, for most of the individual carrier who cannot access a computer environment easily and are not familiar with the use of computer, it has given a big inconvenience to them because the procedures for entering the data obtained from the operation are so complicate. Therefore, in this study, a mobile system for converting the operation record file to request form of a government agency is designed and developed, so that the converted file can be submitted to the government agency in a simple way through the personal mobile device. By entering the data obtained from an actual operation recording device into the system, converting the data in the proposed algorithms, and checking the contents of the converted file in data viewer, it was confirmed that the proposed functions is working properly in the system.
