The Heavy Truck Electronic Interface Group (Daimler, MAN, Scania, DAF Trucks, IVECO, Volvo Trucks and Renault Trucks) has designed a common interface called FMS as an open standard to obtain CAN data from the heavy commercial vehicles. This FMS interface provides valuable vehicle diagnostics information for transport companies, such as engine revolutions, engine running hours, distance to next service in kilometers, total fuel used and speed. Aplicom provides accessories for collecting available FMS data.
The truck manufacturers have also agreed on a common connector for the FMS-interface / remote download. The FMS-connector is nevertheless not a compulsory accessory, and therefore not always installed. Even if the connector is in place, there is no certainty that the required data will be available. In such cases Aplicom can provide vehicle diagnostics and CAN FMS data to your back-end system using an inductive and contactless CAN-reader.
