In the United States, the National
Insurance Crime Bureau estimated (2007 figures) more than $1
billion in construction equipment was stolen each year.
Construction equipment is believed to be targeted by thieves because it is often poorly secured, easily disguised and very expensive.
Anti-theft measures taken for registered motor vehicles are often not used on construction equipment: open cabs of construction equipment can be easy for thieves to access; equipment often has "one key fits all" ignition systems; construction equipment often does not have standardized vehicle identification numbers or serial numbers, and when they do, thieves often remove the numbers; title and registration for the equipment are not mandated. Record-keeping for construction equipment is often poor, making identification of recovered items difficult. Large construction equipment is used to flatten a security fence before thieves leave a storage or construction site.
Thieves typically remove all identifying numbers before reselling the items, often to unsuspecting contractors. Other equipment may be stripped down to components for separate resale on the black market. Some items stolen in the United States and the United Kingdom are sold overseas.
Thefts can occur from construction sites, by thieves posing as customers of rental companies and from equipment storage areas. Stolen construction equipment is sometimes used to commit other crimes. For example, thieves have used construction equipment to move or destroy bank.
who's the enforcer?
Modern wireless micro-processor based Vehicle Monitoring Systems
are a little known profit pocket! They return your investment cost many
times over. Within ten years, most heavy equipment will come out of
the factory with these features.
Out Why: We are installing Industrial Vehicle Monitoring Systems,
serve as the "eyes and ears" of business
and cost as little as
$1000 - $1300 per unit.
systems ensure compliance
with vehicle safety regulations and significantly enhance fleet security
management by providing dynamic driver access control, automated
electronic vehicle inspection checklists, and impact sensors to establish
driver accountability and reduce the costs of abusive driving.

Confusion surrounded the equipment and continues. Confusion erodes safety, performance and profit!
I believe that micro-processors are big in the future of equipment, because since the beginning, as a young guy walking around doing my sales for a family-owned heavy equipment dealership, I was amazed at how dysfunctional most companies were from the focal point of the equipment!
Was proper maintenance planned? Maybe? How about operator safety training? Hit and miss. Does anybody know the cost of use and ownership? Who knows? Where are they? Where exactly are the equipment at any point in time? I'll have to go look for them! And on it goes! Confusion surrounded the equipment and continues to do so. And confusion erodes safety, performance and profit!! And yet, they are expensive, big investments and critical to company functioning.
There needs to be better control over equipment - their rental, lease, purchase and eventual sale or disposal - the whole life cycle. Control comes only when company decision-makers have information about them. And that's what micro-processors do.
