The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) funded this pilot test to (1) develop generic voluntary requirements for an untethered trailer tracking system using as a model QUALCOMM's proprietary T2 Untethered Trailer Tracking system that includes specific capabilities and (2) field test a system that meets these requirements.
This report outlines the requirements for this untethered trailer tracking system, provides a detailed break down of the individual technologies used, and explains how they will be field tested to provide evidence that the technologies meet the designated requirements.
The results from this project can be used by motor carriers as system guidelines for voluntary adoption of untethered trailer tracking systems within their trucking fleets.
This is a final report developed under FMCSA's deployment of untethered trailer tracking system program. It does not supersede an earlier report on the subject. Note that certain confidential and proprietary information that pertains to QUALCOMM's proprietary technology has been removed.
