This paper is aimed to constitute a distributed system for remote monitoring and control of construction vehicle. And this system is mainly divided into three parts: intelligent vehicle monitoring terminal, remote monitoring center and communication system. The functions and architectures of each part are discussed respectively in detail. The critical technologies of implementing the system are also deeply studied, which include CAN bus technology, the embedded system technology, mobile communication technology, database technology and so on. It is indicated that this system will meet the requirements of all the users and clients, including the field operators, construction managers, manufacturers, etc.
