An upgrade to the PerformX wireless vehicle management system from PeopleNet extends remote monitoring of fault codes to light trucks using the OBD-II onboard diagnostics network. On the heavy-duty side, PerformX can now also wirelessly transmit vehicle fault codes from the vehicle's J1587 data bus to fleet users in real-time.

The new fault-code enhancement allows fleets to decide which should be routinely held for batch downloading and which require sending a real-time alert. All J1587 data collected by PerformX can be viewed with PeopleNet's web interface.

The OBD-II upgrade extends PerformX vehicle performance and fault-code monitoring to light trucks and vans, allowing mixed fleets to use the PeopleNet management system on their heavy-, medium- and now light-duty trucks.

Both the OBD-II and fault-monitoring enhancements will be available by the end of the first quarter, according to PeopleNet. www.peoplenetonline.com
