Since the first microprocessor application to passenger cars in 1977, the number of electronically monitored and controlled vehicle functions for both commercial vehicles and private passenger automobiles has increased phenomenally. New electronic technologies such as mobile satellites, cellular radios, vehicle location and navigation, vehicle on-board micro-computers, artificial intelligence , automatic vehicle identification, automatic vehicle classification, weigh-in-motion, and wide area vehicle monitoring have quickened the pace of technology applications in the transportation sector. This paper reviews the current and emerging electronic vehicle monitoring technology applications, discusses the possible inter-relationships of various applications being contemplated, and describes an interface concept to integrate electronic vehicle monitoring systems for future application consideration.
