Abstract

The embodiments described herein relate to methods and systems for optimizing telematics data transfer to improve responsiveness and bandwidth usage The telematics device can be configured to transmit telematics data or a subset of priority telematics data to a remote server at a first time interval or a second time interval that is faster than the first time interval The telematics device can be configured to transmit at the second time interval when the telematics device receives a user access signal sent by a remote server that indicates a user is attempting to access telematics data from the telematics device

METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR OPTIMIZING TELEMATICS DATA
TRANSFER RESONSIVENESS AND BANDWITH USAGE

FIELD

    The embodiments disclosed herein relate generally to transferring telematics data. More specifically, the embodiments described herein relate to methods and systems for optimization of telematics responsiveness and bandwidth usage.

BACKGROUND

    A telematics device can gather data related to position and operation of a transportation vehicle, and can transmit the data at a fixed time interval back to, for example, a remote server. In some embodiments, the telematics device can be used to monitor an environmental condition (e.g., temperature, humidity, air quality, and the like)

(TRS). TRS is use to control the environmental condition of the internal space of a transport unit. The TRS can include refrigeration components, e.g., evaporator, condenser and compressor, sensors and a transport refrigeration system (TRS) controller.

    The telematics device can receive data from the TRS controller, and transfer the data to a remote server. The remote server can be configured to receive and store

telematics data from one or more telematics devices and can allow a user to access the telematics data remotely through, e.g., a terminal computer to monitor the status of the perishable cargo.

within a transport unit such as a container (e.g., a container on a flat car, an intermodal container, etc.), a truck, a box car, or other similar transport unit (generally referred to as a "refrigerated transport unit"). Refrigerated transport units are commonly used to transport perishable items such as produce, frozen foods, and meat products. Typically, a refrigerated transport unit includes a transport unit and a transport refrigeration system 20

SUMMARY

    The embodiments disclosed herein relate generally to transferring telematics data. More specifically, the embodiments described herein relate to methods and systems for optimization of telematics responsiveness and bandwidth usage for a telematics device of a refrigerated transport unit.

    Compared to a traditional telematics device that transfers a fixed data set at a fixed speed, the telematics device disclosed herein can transfer telematics data to a remote server at variable time intervals including at least a first time interval and a second time interval. In some embodiments, the second time interval can be shorter than the first time interval. Also, in some embodiments, the second time interval can include

transferring telematics data to the remote server any time a change is monitored in the telematics data. When the user logs into the remote server and attempts to access the telematics data via the remote sever, the remote server can send a user access signal to the telematics device. Upon receiving the user access signal, the telematics device determines that the user is attempting to access the telematics data transferred by the
