Languages of publication


The Article concerns the issue of the remote engine slow and stop technology. The technology of vehicle on-board tracking devices and associated infrastructure is now established and its early development led to the creation of CEN TS 15213–1 to 15213–6 (inclusive) After Theft Systems for Vehicle Recovery from 2002 onwards. In addition to the technical and interoperability issues, the work also addressed security and the logical procedures to gain the involvement of law enforcement agencies (LEA) without risk to LEA resources or innocent drivers of vehicles. Author shows the legal solutions of the Vienna Convention on the road traffic from 1968 which appeared to prohibit the introduction of devices which over-rode the control of the driver — albeit an unlawful or criminal driver. The important part of the Article is describing the Extract CEN TS 15213 –Remote Degradation Function which provides the possibility to degrade remotely the vehicle’s performance using either long or short-range transmission techniques and the UK remote engine stop model through the trying the answer for the question if it prejudice a CEN standard. CEN TC 278 WG14 should actively extend its network to encourage a wider membership of expertise from manufacturers, vehicle operators and national representation. Interest has been shown but there is a reluctance to commit resources. This is not just an issue for WG14, but standards work in general. Therefore CEN TC278 and National Standards bodies are asked to assist identify contributors.
