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


combination data (Information Flow): Information on the current vehicle combination 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.

Rating Moderate Moderate Low
Basis May include PII of driver, vehicle. May also include information about commercial load, whichc could be comepetitive information that if exposed to a third party could provide business leverage. Some degree of assurance of correctness is necessary for the application to function. Probably does not need to be active all the time. Intermittent connectivity should usually suffice to support this flow, which is in place for vehicles with typically well defined routes.
