Heavy Equipment Telematics
What is Equipment Telematics for Construction?
Heavy equipment telematics includes data on location, speed, fault codes, engine hours, computer engine diagnostics, and other vital asset health data that is read through a machine or vehicle’s onboard computer. This information is accessed and transmitted through IoT technology via GPS and cellular trackers.
How does Heavy Equipment Telematics for Construction Work?
Modern vehicles and heavy equipment all contain various computers and an Engine Control Unit (ECU) that controls the engine and various aspects of the asset. These computers also contain a wealth of maintenance and diagnostic information than can be read via various standardized plug-in interfaces.
GPS fleet trackers and other cellular wireless GPS trackers for heavy equipment are designed to plug into the standard OBD II or JBUS vehicle interface or wire directly into the asset engine. In addition to transmitting live GPS location (position) information over a cellular network connection, these devices are also capable of transmitting heavy equipment telematics data including speed, fault codes, engine hours and other important diagnostic information.
