AIS 140


What is AIS 140?

  • Ministry of road transport and highways has directed Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) to publish set of standards called Automotive Industry Standard 140 (AIS 140). These would be used to design and build an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), which would enable better management of public transportation in India.
  • Ministry of road transport and highways (MoRTH) it had stated that the installation of AIS 140 certified vehicle tracking system along with the emergency button is mandatory from the 1st of January, 2019 in all new public/passenger vehicles and also commercial vehicles with national permit.
  • The device needs to be capable of obtaining information using GAGAN, the Indian satellite-based augmentation system (IRNSS).
  • Testing agency: Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) & International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT)
  • Requirements on ITS devices and functions - Vehicle Location Tracking and Emergency Button
  • Device Approval: Approval provided at Device level for compliance to this standard. These approved devices can be fitted / retro-fitted by manufacturer/ Dealer/ permit holder/system integrator in any vehicle model provided it shall meet installation requirements as mentioned in the standard
  • State Government (especially Kerala) has decided to follow MORTH’s AIS-140 standard. AIS-140 standard would be adopted with few modification in data protocol and data formats. Hence there would be changes in data send from devices to the server managed by State. They have decided to enlist device providers who can meet AIS-140 standard along with state required modifications.
  • CDAC is authorized to enlist process in around 8 states
  • As per the norms Devices has to be connected to 2 state provided servers and one provided by manufacturer
  • The AIS 140 standard is required by:
    Bus: Intercity and intracity public buses, along with intercity and intracity private ones.
    Taxi: Car rentals, bus/taxi fleet owners, corporate fleets, taxi hailing service providers Schools, Universities and corporate bus operators
  • For all new vehicles registered after may 2019 it is compulsory to have AIS certified devices for registration. Also there is a huge market of vehicles in road
  • Is an indigenously developed IRNSS based Vehicle Tracking Device (VTD)
  • Provides precise location, time, and speed, distance etc. and aimed at tracking applications.
  • The IRNSS and GSM antennas are embedded within the enclosure thereby ensuring tamper–proof operation.
  • The general purpose I/O’s of the AIS 140 are conditioned and brought out to serve as digital I/O and analog input.
  • Its power supply design is robust enough to handle the vehicle supply variations.
  • It can operate from 7V up to 32V and provide protection against surges, short circuit and reverse battery connection.
  • Supports HTTP, TCP/IP and UDP/IP protocols for the communication with the server.
  • can be integrated with many accessories such as SOS button, temperature sensor, fuel sensor, RS-232 based active/passive RFID’s etc, 2-way voice communication with external mic and speaker interface.
  • GPS data, tilt alerts, emergency alerts, tampering alerts, over speed alerts, wire cut alerts, Geo fences, Internal battery voltage, external battery voltage, ignition detection, harsh braking, sudden acceleration, GPS speed, GPS logs when network connectivity is not there are capture and send.
  • The GSM data is send at an interval of 5sec while running and 10 mts when ignition is not there.
  • 40000 logs are capture in case data is not there and send in batches when connectivity is obtained.
  • Use of IRNSS module gives an accuracy to 1 meter
