15. Supplementary Notes
This program was administered through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The FMCSA Program Manager is Ms. Amy Houser.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) funded this pilot test to (1) develop generic voluntary requirements for an untethered trailer tracking system using as a model QUALCOMM's proprietary T2 Untethered Trailer Tracking system that includes specific capabilities and (2) field test a system that meets these requirements.
This document outlines the requirements for this untethered trailer tracking system, provides a detailed break down of the individual technologies used, and outlines how, using a total of seventy five (75) trailers outfitted with QUALCOMM's T2 Untethered Trailer Tracking units and door and cargo sensors, these requirements could be met under three different operational scenarios (Truck load/Dry Van, High Value, Explosives/Hazmat) using field tests.
