Telematics applications within the National Telematics Framework are developed by producers,
and made available to consumers by providers.


New applications being deployed through the National Telematics Framework
(as at November 2018)



How can it be used?


 Level of assurance Producer/s

Intelligent Mass application


The Intelligent Mass application enables vehicle mass and configuration to be linked with other telematics data (such as location, time and speed).

Intelligent Mass can be used for a range of purposes where the measurement of vehicle mass is important, including:

  • Commercial requirements
  • Regulatory requirements
  • Accreditation requirements.

In addition, Intelligent Mass provides opportunities for road managers and regulators to increase mass loadings for higher productivity vehicles.

A draft Functional and Technical Specification was released on
01 November 2018.

Consultation is open until 07 December 2018.

Intelligent Mass is scheduled to become operational and available during the second half of 2019.


Level 1, 2 or 3 depending on the needs of Producers.

Road managers (including Local Governments)

Heavy vehicle regulators

Environmental regulators

Maritime Regulators



Road Infrastructure Management (RIM) application

The RIM application aggregates and de-identifies data collected from monitored vehicles.  

RIM can be used by road managers and planners to gain a better understanding of  road and bridge infrastructure utilisation to inform road infrastructure and network planning.

The RIM application is scheduled to become operational and available from early 2019.


 Level 1

Roads and Maritime Services (NSW)

Department of Transport and Main Roads (QLD)

Telematics Monitoring Application (TMA)


The Telematics Monitoring Application is a heavy vehicle access application with Level 2 assurance.



TMA can be used for access arrangements where there are lower levels of infrastructure capacity or operator risks.

The IAP application remains available for use by road managers and regulators where higher risks are identified, and/or where Level 3 assurance and certificate-based evidence is needed. 

The Telematics Monitoring Application is scheduled to become operational and available during 2019.

 Level 2

Road managers (including Local Governments)

Heavy vehicle regulators

Hill Descent Monitoring (HDM) application

The HDM application allows vehicle speed to be monitored on steep descents.

HDM can be used on heavy vehicles that need to conform with speed restrictions at specific locations.

HDM can also be used to identify if a vehicle has stopped (to check brakes and engage low gear) before descending a hill.

The HDM application is scheduled to become operational and available from early 2019.
