On-Board Weight Monitoring Equipment --> Commercial Vehicle OBE:
mass data


mass data (Information Flow): Information on the current vehicle mass collected by on-board weight monitoring equipment.

On-Board Weight Monitoring Equipment (Source Physical Object): 'On-Board Weight Monitoring Equipment' is an Australia-specific physical object that automatically collects static and dynamic data about the vehicle mass and configuration from sensors on each trailer.

Commercial Vehicle OBE (Destination Physical Object): The Commercial Vehicle On-Board Equipment (OBE) resides in a commercial vehicle and provides the sensory, processing, storage, and communications functions necessary to support safe and efficient commercial vehicle operations. It provides two-way communications between the commercial vehicle drivers, their fleet managers, attached freight equipment, and roadside officials. A separate 'Vehicle OBE' physical object supports vehicle safety and driver information capabilities that apply to all vehicles, including commercial vehicles. The Commercial Vehicle OBE supplements these general ITS capabilities with capabilities that are specific to commercial vehicles.

Interoperability Description
Local In cases where an interface is normally encapsulated by a single stakeholder, interoperability is still desirable, but the motive is vendor independence and the efficiencies and choices that an open standards-based interface provides.


Information Flow Security
  Confidentiality Integrity Availability
Rating Moderate Moderate Moderate
Basis This flow is internal to the commercial vehicle+trailer, but should probably be encrypted to discourage hacking and snooping on the vehicle bus. It also may imply operating characteristics and/or could be competitive information. Thus MODERATE. The basis for the mass monitoring application; if this flow is not correct then the integrity of the entire application is suspect. The basis for the mass monitoring application; if this flow doesn't work, nothing works. Given that everything else is downstream of this flow, we consider it MODERATE even though the rest of the application may not be.
