Concept of Operations (ConOps) for Wireless Roadside Inspection

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Wireless Roadside Inspection Program will demonstrate the feasibility and value of assessing truck and bus drivers and vehicles 100 times more often than is possible using today’s approaches. The program will evaluate the potential benefits to both the motor carrier industry and to government. FMCSA has developed a multi-year roadmap for the Wireless Roadside Inspection Program and has organized the program into three major phases with critical “go/no-go” decision points after each. The three phases are (1) Technical Concept Development and Demonstration, (2) Pilot Testing, and (3) Field Operational Testing. As part of the first phase, the program team collaborated with private-sector onboard equipment and service providers to conduct a proof-of-concept test in August 2007. The program is now entering the Pilot Testing phase. This revised draft technical concept of operations reflects changes resulting from lessons learned during phase 1 initial testing and from stakeholder feedback.
