[Video Blog] How Does a Vehicle Telematics Solution Work?
The first manifestation of a Vehicle Telematics Solution (as a Vehicle Tracking System) can be traced back to as early as 1990s. This was the time when the technologies related to GPS and Vehicle Connectivity to Internet were making waves.
Back then, a vehicle tracking system consisted of a hardware platform, integrated inside the vehicle with connectivity modules. This enabled a communication channel between the Hardware Platform and the local server. All the data in the server was via locally-installed software.
Fast forward to 2019, the modern-day vehicle telematics solutions enable the users to monitor the driver behavior using mobile or web app , receive real-time Traffic alerts, e-call during crisis, track stolen vehicles , send/receive lane change warning, receive alerts related to the battery health, and more.
Going by the current market trends, it is anticipated that by 2025 the U.S roads would have about 116 million connected cars. And each of these connected cars would be uploading 25 gigabytes of data to the cloud in an hour.
These numbers give us the hint regarding the scale at which the future Vehicle Telematics solutions would be expected to operate.
But the curious mind of an Automotive Engineer would be more concerned regarding the following questions:
- How is the vehicle data transmitted effectively to outside world through cloud server?
- What is the technology framework of an efficient vehicle telematics solution that enables reliable car-to-cloud communication?
