Report on Future Intelligent Vehicle Health-Ready Maintenance Fleet Pilot Project Trials
TMC's Future Truck Committee — through its Future Sensor Enhanced Maintenance Task Force — is conducting two webinars to report the results of two fleet trials in a demonstration project to pilot the use of the SAE JA6268™ recommended practice in collaboration with the SAE Health-Ready Components & Systems (HRCS) Consortium.
The object of the project is to explore potential benefits to the trucking industry for delivering more rapid and cost-effective Intelligent Vehicle Health-Ready Maintenance (IVHM) solutions utilizing the open framework methodology developed within SAE for all transportation modes.
The project’s initial emphasis targets a set of standard generic templates and datasheets to simplify the integration process for more effective communication between all suppliers and integrators, utilizing TMC’s Vehicle Maintenance Reporting System (VMRS)™ as its basis, which will also allow for the introduction of innovative new technology. If successful, this project will lay the foundation for game changing diagnostic and prognostic features based on advanced analytics. The agenda covering each fleet’s unique pilot program will include:
- Introduction and Technical Overview of the Demonstration Project
- Pilot Program Scope and Objectives
- Pilot Program Data Flow
- JA6268 Templates / Datasheets used in the Pilot Program
- Current Program Status
- Preliminary Results
- Next Steps
The Task Force will present the results to date of two fleet trials. At the first webinar, Noon to 1 PM EDT on Monday March 22, ABF Freight System and Volvo Trucks will report on their experiences.
At the second webinar, Noon to 1 PM EDT on Wednesday March 31, Southeastern Freight Lines and DG Technologies will give their report.
