The AEM/AEMP Draft Telematics API Standard is Now Available for Download


Review Carefully:  The AEM/AEMP Draft Telematics API (Application Programming Interface) Standard, Version 2.0, is now available to all interested parties.

The standard is a collaborative effort of AEMP and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), working on behalf of their members and the industry.  It expands the original AEMP Telematics Standard, Version 1.2 to include 19 data fields (with fault code capability).   This Draft API replaces the current version 1.2.  The Draft API does not currently cover some types of equipment, e.g., agriculture equipment, cranes, mobile elevating work platforms, air compressors and other niche products.

In addition to the new data fields, the AEM/AEMP Draft Telematics API (Application Programming Interface) Standard also changes how the data is accessed in an effort to make it easier to consume and integrate with other systems and processes. It includes standardized communication protocols for the ability to transfer telematics information in mixed equipment fleets to end user business enterprise systems, enabling the end user to employ their own business software to collect and then analyze asset data from mixed equipment fleets without the need to work across multiple telematics provider applications.

AEMP and AEM also encourage participation in the API developer group to ask questions and receive any clarification that is needed. Request access here:

To achieve a globally recognized standard for conformity worldwide, the AEM/AEMP Draft Telematics API Standard will be submitted for acceptance by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).  As such this new Standard is a work in progress. Final language is dependent upon completion of the ISO acceptance process.   While we do not expect major changes, it is likely that the AEM/AEMP Draft API will change as part of this process. As a result, any development of production software utilizing this Draft API is at the providers and consumers own risk until the ISO standard is complete.

Upon download, this Draft API will be registered to you and your company and by agreement should not be sent, forwarded or republished in electronic fashion or any media. Access to the Draft API is free. Please forward any additional interest to the AEM or AEMP websites. If you do not receive this Draft directly from the source, you will not be included in any of the future updates or additional documentation.
