AEM, AEMP telematics standard includes new features

By |  December 8, 2015

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) released their new construction equipment telematics standard, which now includes features to facilitate data gathering. The new standard also includes a test database and manufacturer verification system.

The standard enables equipment users to gather more OEM equipment data into their preferred business or fleet management software. This provides users with easier access and improved ability to manage and analyze information across their fleets, the associations say.

Currently, the standard is going through the approval process with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to be accepted as a global standard. Thus far, the original data points and intent have not changed. However, the ISO review process has resulted in the following changes:

  • More frequent data polling
  • More data flexibility
  • Better security
  • Faster API load time
  • More options for customers’ integrators
  • Unit of measures standardized to metric
  • More data per customers’ requests

“This ISO standard gives fleet-intensive companies confidence the format of the data being gathered from multiple OEMs conforms to an international standard, which in turn eases the implementation process to utilize the telematics data in making better informed business decisions,” says Tim Truex, certified energy manager for Kokosing Construction Co. and AEMP technology committee chairman.

Additionally, AEM will offer a test database that allows third parties, software developers and major fleet owner developers to verify that their businesses are functioning correctly to pull in their desired information.

The AEM/AEMP telematics requirements will be part of ISO 15143 as a new section called “Part 3: Machine Data.”
