AEMP Releases Telematics Data Standard

September 28, 2010

AEMP telematics data standard will allow delivery of basic telematics data to end-user databases. AEMP has been working with OEMs to write the standard. Participating OEMs could begin supporting delivery of data using the standard format by October 2010.

The standard was developed by volunteers from McFadyen & Associates, Caterpillar, Trimble, John Deere, Volvo Construction Equipment , and Komatsu. End-users will be able to transfer telematics data from a provider's server to their own systems. It facilitates programmatic retrieval of critical machine data for import into the end-user's database to simplify telematics implementation in a mixed-fleet environment.

The standard provides basic machine data, such as cumulative operating hours, cumulative miles travelled (for vehicles), cumulative fuel consumed (where supported), and current location in a common xml document. The provision of this basic information in a common format allows end users to develop one API to parse the data and import it into their databases for use by the fleet management application, allowing telematics data to feed the existing reports that equipment managers use to manage their fleets. The same API can be used to retrieve the data from each OEM (using unique authentication credentials and server information for each), greatly reducing implementation expense.

This standard is intended to complement existing telematics web portals, rather than replace them. The data provided by the standard will allow users to automate once- or twice-daily updates to their fleet-level reports, and the data from each manufacturer will coexist with that from other providers and legacy machines whose data is still being entered manually. The telematics providers’ web portals will still provide the more detailed information required for deeper inquiries into a particular machine or group of machines.
