RAM Truck Upfitter Module
We have developed a production vehicle bus interface module for 2010-2012 RAM Trucks - including the 2010 RAM Motor Trend's Truck of the Year and 2011-2012 RAM Chassis Cab trucks. The RAM Truck Upfitter Module (RTUM) provides OEM-approved access to an array of vehicle data including odometer, tachometer, vehicle speed, oil pressure and a variety of vehicle status information.
Example applications include ambulance and street sweeper conversions.
The RTUM draws upon our experience in designing network gateway modules and vehicle bus interfaces for development vehicle applications as a Tier 1 automotive supplier. The RTUM is based upon the Gateway3 Development Platform which utilizes the industry standard CAN vehicle networking protocol to capture vehicle data and provide it to the aftermarket upfitter.
We have presented the Ram Truck Upfitter Module with the RAM team at NTEA 2010 and 2011 and we are listed as a resource on the RAM Truck Body Builders Guide.
We have worked with RAM Truck commercial vehicle team to provide access to the data required by various upfitter applications. The off-the-shelf RTUM gives access to 25 different vehicle signals.
FEV can also design a customized version of the RTUM to provide access to additional bus signals as required for specific applications. Additional information is available here.
Aftermarket suppliers and upfitters should contact us for more details.
