AEM/AEMP Telematics Standard Earns ISO Approval

The mixed-fleet telematics standard from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) has received approval from ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, to be accepted as a global standard.

The new ISO mixed-fleet telematics standard enables equipment users to gather more OEM equipment data into their preferred business or fleet management software, providing easier access, improved ability to manage and analyze information across their fleets, and help saving time and money on the job site or within their operations.

While ISO is preparing the standard for final posting to its website, AEM and AEMP suggest three steps equipment users can take now to prepare for final publication of the ISO mixed-fleets standard.

First, equipment users are advised to check with their manufacturers to determine if and when they plan to comply with the standard and offer data through the standard’s application programming interface (API) format.

Second, equipment users are advised to check with the supplier of their preferred business or fleet management software for its plan to support integration of the new API to enable retrieval of their machine data. A helpful reference source is the “AEMP Telematics for Fleet Managers” primer.

Third, equipment users can bookmark the expected landing page for the standard and check back periodically to see when it is posted.

The ISO mixed-fleet telematics standard will be part of IS0 15143 (“Earth-moving machinery and mobile road construction machinery – Worksite data exchange”) as a new section – “Part 3: Machine data.”
