This paper: (a) outlines an alternative uniform technical environment, referred to as the Universal Diagnostic Platform for the Heavy Truck Industry, (b) covers the background leading up to this recommendation, (c) states the current status of industry wide activity related to this topic and (d) makes recommendations to the industry.
