A new sensor is detected being added to a vehicle sensor bus. A publication topic is created based on the new sensor. The publication topic is made available via at least to a server component operating via the proximity networking radio. Data from the new sensor is added to the publication topic. In response to a subscription to the publication topic via a user device, the data is dynamically presented to the user device via the server component.
H04W 8/18 - Processing of user or subscriber data, e.g. subscribed services, user preferences or user profiles; Transfer of user or subscriber data
H04L 67/125 - Protocols specially adapted for proprietary or special-purpose networking environments, e.g. medical networks, sensor networks, networks in vehicles or remote metering networks involving control of end-device applications over a network
H04L 67/025 - Protocols based on web technology, e.g. hypertext transfer protocol [HTTP] for remote control or remote monitoring of applications
A system for use on a vehicle comprising a tractor and a trailer comprises a communications device that effects communications between the system and a remote system. The communications device is configured to receive data from the remote system. An event detector is configured to generate a trigger signal in response to detecting occurrence of predetermined events. An onboard computer is coupled to the communications device, the event detector, a media recorder, and a computer of the vehicle. One or more image capture devices at the vehicle are communicatively coupled to one or both of the onboard computer and the media recorder. The onboard computer is configured to adjust one or more parameters of the image capture devices and/or modify one or more parameters of the event detector based at least in part on the data received from the remote system.
Systems and methods are directed to recording data at a plurality of in-service vehicles operating within a plurality of predetermined regions for which users of a plurality of mobile devices are responsible, analyzing, at the vehicles, the recorded data for violation of one of a plurality of predetermined safety parameters by the vehicles, and transmitting, to a central server, data associated with a safety parameter violation by a vehicle in violation of one of the predetermined safety parameters. A safety event alert is generated at the central server for the vehicle in violation in response to receiving the transmitted data, and the safety event alert is communicated from the central office to a mobile device authorized by the central office to receive the safety event alert for the predetermined region within which the violation occurred.
Techniques for authorizing fuel purchases based on vehicle available fuel tank capacity. The authorization may be performed on a transaction basis, such that each fueling event may be independently authorized. A current fuel tank capacity for the vehicle is obtained, and transmitted to an authorization entity. An authorization is obtained for dispensing a quantity of fuel that does not exceed the current fuel tank capacity.
