Ultrack (Canada) has announced the J1939 CANbus Device gateway. It processes received J1939 messages and forwards the results to a fleet management system (FMS).

Additionally, the gateway comprises four inputs, two outputs, two temperature sensor inputs, one camera for still images, and an SOS button. The device logs in real-time statistics such as: oil pressure, engine temperature, real-time physical location, fuel rate, engine speed at various points, vehicle speed at various points, and transmission data.
