Freight Equipment --> Commercial Vehicle OBE:
freight equipment information

Definitions

freight equipment information (Information Flow): Container, trailer, or chassis information regarding identity, type, location, brake wear data, mileage, seal #, seal type, door open/close status, chassis bare/covered status, tethered / untethered status, temperature, humidity, power, battery levels, brake wear data, and bill of lading/information regarding the cargo/content.

Freight Equipment (Source Physical Object): 'Freight Equipment' represents a freight container, intermodal chassis, or trailer and provides sensory, processing, storage, and communications functions necessary to support safe, secure and efficient freight operations. It provides equipment safety data and status and can alert the appropriate systems of an incident, breach, or tamper event. It also provides accurate position information to support in-transit visibility of freight equipment.

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 Moderate
Basis Cargo status information, though internal to the vehicle, should probably be protected as part of a sound defense-in-depth strategy against malicious hacking. Freight Vehicle to CV OBE is considered on-board when the vehicle and freight are mated, so the same logic holds.
