Trailer Monitoring Interoperability in Australia

Transport Certification Australia (TCA) has identified the future need of a trailer interoperability system in Australia to support a range of regulatory telematics applications. Currently, drivers manually self declare trailers and other parameters of interest to regulators. A range of trailer monitoring devices are already in the market but many systems are stand alone. Trailer interoperability relates to the system able to identify an attached prime mover and trailer combination. The proposed trailer interoperability system is based on a back-office interoperability solution which permits interoperability between any certified in-vehicle unit and trailer-mounted monitoring devices. This paper reports on the current progress of this project in Australia.
