Mark Botticelli, chief technology officer for PeopleNet, says data collected from a vehicle can include information from the tire pressure monitoring systems, stability/control systems, reefer monitoring, cargo status sensors and others.

"Vehicle-generated data is on the rise as more and more vehicle-centric data is generated by a growing number of sensors being added to trucks to support improved performance, safety, diagnostics and maintenance," he says.
He also noted that more information is being generated from driver interactions, such as enhanced messaging, navigation, re-routing and other information that can be put to use in the back office to optimize routing or driver scheduling.

On Friday, April 18, Mark Botticelli entered a conference room on the top floor of PeopleNet's headquarters in Minnetonka, Minn., carrying the Google Glass. The company's chief information officer said he will be experimenting with this and other high-tech devices while leading the development of PeopleNet's next-generation Precision Mobility platform.

The Google Glass currently costs $1,500 but, as with most technology, will become more affordable over time. At some point, fleets and drivers may want to use the technology for conducting pre-trip inspections of equipment, he said. Instead of noting any defects on paper or by punching keys on mobile devices, drivers would use simple eye movements and verbal cues to capture content as they walk around vehicles.
Inspections are one of many examples of where connected devices or the "Internet of things" continue to make an impact in the transportation industry. Electronic control units (ECUs), tire sensors, roll stability control and lane departure warning systems, video recorders, onboard computers and smart phones are some of the technologies already being used to capture and transmit data in and around the vehicle.
In developing the Precision Mobility platform, Botticelli said that PeopleNet will be taking a new approach for managing the growing amount of data that is being generated at the vehicle level.
As part of celebrating 20 years in business, Botticelli and other PeopleNet executives hosted this CCJ editor at the company's headquarters to discuss the past, present and future of the company as its prepares to launch its next generation platform for fleet mobility.
The prevailing theme during the meeting was that PeopleNet will stay true to its roots and provide a fully supported, enterprise platform. This involves a deep commitment to developing and supporting its own hardware, cellular network and mobile applications. One advantage of deploying its own hardware in the vehicle rather than leveraging consumer-style devices, as others have done, is to distribute processing power to the cab in order to "generate higher value data and deliver that data to the cloud," Botticelli said.
As an example, Botticelli offered a case where an engine publishes a certain fault code that several devices on the vehicle want to see immediately.

I think unfortunately the data that is available is still proprietary and it is still routed back to the OEM, in some instances maybe it's shared with other systems," says Mark Botticelli, chief technology officer at PeopleNet, Minnetonka, Minn.

Because most carriers run mixed fleets, using vehicles from more than one OEM, the problem is maintaining the same kind of connectedness across the fleet if relying on only the OEM's connectivity.
Third-party telematics providers help bridge that gap, Botticelli says.
"It's more real-time data movement, near real-time analytics and insightful reporting," Botticelli says.
As more and more data is collected, one of the biggest benefits of connected fleets may be "developing new ways to use the data that we haven't thought of yet," Botticelli says. "That's why we're so excited about getting every piece of information and getting it into the cloud and available for third parties to look at, aggregate it, and then pump new data elements and analytics back into the ecosystem."
If a way could be found to aggregate the data from all vehicles while protecting a fleet's proprietary data, the results could be a much more efficient and safer transportation network.
"We are just at the beginning of that," says Botticelli. And much of that data could come from what the driver is wearing. A shirt, for instance, might measure heart rate and body temperature. If enough of that kind of data could be collected and analyzed, it might be possible to predict when a driver is getting tired before the driver is even aware he is getting tired.

In an interview with Truckinginfo, Mark Botticelli, Peoplenet chief technology officer, said control systems and tire pressure systems send information, as do reefer units.

"Vehicle-generated data is on the rise as more and more vehicle-centric data is generated by a growing number of sensors being added to trucks to support improved performance, safety, diagnostics and maintenance," said Botticelli.
