Paper Abstract

A low-cost data acquisition system based on Z80 microprocessor has been developed to monitor and record the engine running hours of terminal tractors in port cargo handling operations. The engine hours data recorded on a large fleet of tractors will be retrieved electronically and later transferred to a personal computer in the office ready to be processed by standard database software package for maintenance planning and scheduling. The implementation of this system thus reduces manpower and time, and climates human error in data handling.
