ERA outlines telematics data requirements for rental

By Murray Pollok25 August 2021

The European Rental Association (ERA) has issued guidance to equipment manufacturers on the telematics data that rental companies need. The three documents cover eathmoving equipment, access and gensets/compressors.

The reports by the association’s Technical Committee - Data points telematics ERA - detail the telematics priorities of equipment rental companies based on the ISO 15143-3 standard, and aim to help OEMs provide the data that rental companies need.

ERA said the guidance should be read “not as an agreement on a downgraded standard. Rental companies require at least all the data defined in ISO 15143-3, but some data are more urgent than others.”

ERA also highlights some data points that are not part of the ISO standard and details the frequency of data points required by rental companies.

The association said it hoped OEMs would use the guidelines as a priority list, that they would observe the frequency requirements, and provide data to rental companies in a suitable format.

The documents can be downloaded here from the ERA website.
