The system, which has recently been developed, consists of onboard vehicle micro-processor monitoring, data reduction and transmission components, a VHF or satellite communications link, a base station signal modem, and a AT type microcomputer for data analysis and display. Data transmitted to the base station at regular intervals (1-15 minutes) includes: vehicle location, vehicle systems (speed, rpm, refrigeration trailer temperature etc. ) and engine diagnostics data. Base station displays include maps (nationwide to local), systems graphics displays and engine diagnostics displays, including fault diagnosis. The paper traces evolution of the microcomputer based systems monitoring of vehicles as developed by SYPHER: MUELLER from the bubble memory based systems to the real-time integrated locating-systems monitoring systems.
