Vehicle Management and Monitoring Adapter

Advance

PDF print version of this specification : A4 or Letter

The Vehicle Management and Monitoring (VMM) Adapter provides an integrated solution for monitoring and reporting the geographic position, movement parameters and internal health of a vehicle.

The VMM Adapter incorporates a Global Positioning System (GPS) module, a Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) module, autonomous data logging to onboard EEPROM, digital/analogue input as well as digital output functionality. An onboard rules engine allows easy and powerful user configuration. All VMM functions can be accessed using a powerful serial Application Program Interface (API). The adapter is available in the following industry standard compliant formfactors :

  • PMC (IEEE Std 1386.1-2001)

  • Conduction-Cooled PMC (CCPMC) (ANSI/VITA 20-2001)

Features

  • Full GPS functionality with differential GPS input

  • GSM V2.5 (GPRS with built-in TCP/IP stack and SMS communication options)

  • 128 Kbit of EEPROM for the logging user or onboard VMM data

  • A powerful serial API providing access to all VMM functions

  • An onboard rules engine that allows control functions to operate without interaction with the host. (for example, the unit may be programmed to report position via GPRS and activate an alarm when the GPS speed exceeds a preprogrammed setpoint).

This adapter can be controlled in the following ways :

  • External command via serial port (external I/O)

  • External command from host via PCI UART serial interface

  • External command via GSM (GPRS or SMS)

  • Internal, stand-alone operation using rule and function engine

Applications

  • Vehicle tracking applications

  • Position tracking applications

  • Remote data logging using GPRS/SMS

  • Remote control using GPRS/SMS

  • Stand-alone data logging and control

  • Easy to use GSM (GPRS/SMS) communication module
