What is the AEMP API?

The AEMP API is an ISO-standard for communicating construction equipment telematics data for select off-highway asset classes.

What else should you know?

The namesake of the API is AEMP, which stands for the “Association of Equipment Management Professionals”.

The AEMP API is an alias for the ISO Standards, initially put forth by AEMP in 2010 as a 1.0 version, but really finalized for market use as a 2.0 version in ~ 2016.

The benefit of the AEMP API is that it normalizes all data from each respective OEM (manufacturer) to a consistent standard of naming convention and calculation.

Linked here is a detailed support guide for the AEMP API, provided directly by AEMP.


How has the AEMP API been standardized?

AEMP put forth their API standard, on behalf of equipment managers, by ensuring both OEM support and ISO standards enforcement. The technical standard with ISO is “ISO 15143-3”.

Just in case, ISO stands for “International Organization for Standards” (Switzerland-based) and is the default global organization for establishing technical standards.
