AEM, AEMP to Build Testing Mechanisms for Telematics

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and the Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) are working jointly on two separate initiatives to help speed implementation of telematics data into end-user systems.

The two groups will build a test database, said Al Cervero, AEM VP for Construction, Mining & Utility, in response to an ISO request for a method of testing the downloading of telematics data through the AEM/AEMP telematics standard. ISO acceptance is expected shortly, with the final standard available in the first quarter of 2016.

“The test database is actually test data that a customer/contractor/third party can [use] as they’re building their systems,” Cervero said. It allows builders to ensure that their systems can accept data via the standard.

A separate initiative is a verification mechanism through which equipment manufacturers can make sure data are being downloaded properly from the equipment into the customer’s site, Cervero said.

“The test database will be linked to the verification process,” said Stan Orr, CAE, president/CEO of AEMP. “The database, the linkage, and how it works needs to be developed.”

The two groups meet in December with a mid-January deadline for completion of the testing mechanisms, Orr said.
