Motor Carrier Vehicles to Motor Carrier Fleet and Freight Management Interface Diagram

Information Flow Definitions

commercial vehicle breach  (Future)  Selected Comm Solution

Information about a breach or tamper event on a Commercial Vehicle or its attached freight equipment which includes identity, type of breach, location, and time.

commercial vehicle disable  (Future)  Selected Comm Solution

This flow safely disables a specific commercial vehicle.

commercial vehicle identities  (Existing)  Selected Comm Solution

Identification information for the Commercial Vehicle (e.g., license plate number or USDOT number), Freight Equipment (e.g., container, chassis, or trailer identification), Carrier, and Driver.

commercial vehicle location data  (Existing)  

Current vehicle location and related operational conditions data provided by a commercial vehicle.

container transport assignment  (Existing)  

Instructions to a commercial vehicle for the transportation of a container.

driver alert response  (Future)  Selected Comm Solution

Commercial Vehicle Driver response to a breach alert for a Freight Equipment breach or tamper event, or other alerts provided to the driver.

driver log  (Existing)  

A daily log showing hours in service for the current driver. The query flow is not explicitly shown.

driver to fleet request  (Existing)  

Requests from the driver and vehicle for routing, payment, and enrollment information.

expected driver identity characteristics  (Future)  Selected Comm Solution

Driver identification information e.g., encrypted PIN codes issued to drivers, encrypted driver biometric parameters.

fleet to driver update  (Existing)  

Updated instructions to the driver including dispatch, routing, travel and parking information, and special instructions. Special instructions include incident management instruction, operational tasks, impacted transport orders in case of an incident, task descriptions with trip/route/load plan, transport order status information, driver information, vehicle information, cargo information and trip information.

freight equipment information  (Existing)  Selected Comm Solution

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.

hazmat information  (Future)  

Information about a particular hazmat load including nature of the load and unloading instructions. May also include hazmat vehicle route and route update information.

hazmat notification  (Existing)  

Information provided to emergency response organizations regarding a hazmat load including when cargo sensors detect an issue with the load such as a release of hazardous material. This information will include sensor information, vehicle identification, and carrier identification.

on-board safety data  (Future)  

Safety data measured by on–board sensors. Includes information about the vehicle, vehicle components, cargo, and driver. The query flow is not explicitly shown.

on-board vehicle data  (Existing)  Selected Comm Solution

Information about the commercial vehicle stored on–board (for maintenance purposes, gate access, cargo status, lock status, etc.). The request flow is not explicitly shown.

road weather advisories  (Existing)  

Segment–specific weather and road conditions including real–time advisories of deteriorating road and weather conditions, medium–term advisories for the next 2–12 hours, and long–term advisories more than 12 hours into the future. The advisories may include advisories that are issued based on locally collected environmental data (e.g., an ice on bridge advisory).

route deviation alert  (Future)  

An alert that indicates a deviation from a planned route has been detected. The alert will contain the current Commercial Vehicle location and identity.

safety inspection record  (Future)  

Record containing results of commercial vehicle safety inspection.

trigger area  (Future)  

A geographic area a commercial motor vehicle crosses into, which initiates a request to compile and transmit a safety data message. May be associated with a time period.

trigger area notification  (Future)  

Notification to activate wireless roadside inspection safety data message collection.

trip log  (Existing)  

Driver's daily log, vehicle location, mileage, and trip activity (includes screening, inspection and border clearance event data as well as fare payments). The request flow is not explicitly shown.

unique identifiers  (Future)  

Unique identifiers for the motor carrier, driver, and vehicle. This flow identifies the driver actually operating the vehicle in multi–driver scenarios.

vehicle environmental data  (Existing)  

Data from vehicle safety and convenience systems that can be used to estimate environmental and infrastructure conditions, including measured air temperature, exterior light status, wiper status, sun sensor status, rain sensor status, traction control status, anti–lock brake status, vertical acceleration and other collected vehicle system status and sensor information. The collected data is reported along with the location, heading, and time that the data was collected. Both current data and snapshots of recent events (e.g., traction control or anti–lock brake system activations) may be reported.
