  • Many new technologies, too many to cover today, here are a few that relate to managing an equipment fleet Qualify: No IPOD (only person in US) – not totally out of touch. No support group or intervention needed – have MP3 & Phone : Multi-Function IPOD marketing: new, newer replacement with TV screen When do you buy new technology? Do you just keep waiting? Wait too long, then can’t buy 8 track cartridges anymore. * Implement quickly to get max time benefit before technical obsolescence. * It is usually not age that is the problem, its lack of support/parts/interfaces near that technologies’ end-of-life
  • “ GPS System”, most popular, only part of the story – [WHY?] GPS is receive only, need return path. [CLICK] for names, globe is last “ Remote Asset Monitoring” most descriptive “ M2M” short, non-descriptive, not related to candy “ Telematics” innocuous, buzz word “ Mobile Resource Management” most comprehensive Not selling the equipment, but the work the equipment does. Old Spy Box – first heard representing fear & distrust of system. Initial opposition overcome.
  • On Board Monitor: “GPS System” – only part of the story Wireless Network: Purchase time/data packets Internet Server: Trend is toward web-delivered applications, avoids workstation software updates. Black Box, mounted in electrical cabinet, wired to sensors/relays/switches and antenna. Inside: Computer, memory, input sensors, output lines, GPS receiver, Data Satellite Transceiver (paid service) Internet –delivered information: A current Trend along with Outsourcing Pyramid web site structure, limiting access to appropriate management levels.
  • Business Areas affected have increased over the years, Providing greater financial justification Vehicle Security: Unauthorized use, theft? [CLICK] for display segments
  • Not geosynchronous – WHY?
  • [CLICK] for maps
  • DataRadio Gemini Transceiver Need bandwidth – adding is costly
  • Zigbee 802.15 mesh 802.15 (not compatible with 802.11 WiFi) Gate System, Pump System NOW – Multi-Mode selecting least cost carrier.
  • Unauthorized use: Backhoe 8 miles away
  • Utility & Service trucks Temp AND Pressure Adapting to construction equipment tires. [CLICK] CAN bus interface!!! Alerts to Management
  • And, why do we do this? Why use technology? What is the point?. Technology amplifies our efforts, it saves us energy and time . . . Scientific research shows . . .
