How Automotive Telematics Works?

The cornerstone for automotive telematics is a vehicle tracking device. It collates coordinates based GPS data including other significant onboard vehicle diagnostics data and transmits the same through wireless mobile data to a centralised server for data interpretation prior to serving a simplified dash friendly variant to an end-user.

The amount of data collected by a telematics device help attain in-depth information about the vehicle that is being tracked which includes real-time live tracking of the vehicle, geo-fencing zones, vehicle idling times, driver behaviour and tracking involving harsh braking or acceleration, fuel usage, vehicle functions and faults among other things.

This set of data accumulated can be served through fleet management and fleet tracking software via a desktop or a smartphone device through a website or a cloud-based app.
