Vehicle Telematics Technology Guide


The Telematics and tracking technology guide aims to provide explanations of the technology used by the telematics industry.  The articles will vary from  basic introductions to more technical and detailed articles on a range of subjects of interest to users of telematics.

Perhaps the primary interest of the telematics user isn’t how something works, but does it work? and will it work for me?  However, even gaining a small  understanding of the ideas behind a telematics product can give you the confidence to ask questions the completely uninitiated might not ask and ensure your getting the right technology for the right purpose.

The Vehicle Telematics technology guide will be added to on a regular basis as visitors to the website give feedback and ask questions.  Please e-mail me if you would like an explanation added to the guide. Click here to contact UK Telematics Online.

Extract from Wikipedia: Telematics

The etymology of telematics, as determined by Automotive Telematics author and academic Dennis Foy, is from the Greek "tele" ('far away', especially in relation to the  process of producing or recording) and ~Matos (a derivative of the Greek machinari, or contrivance, usually taken in this context to mean 'of  its own accord'). As combined, the term "telematics" describes the  process of long-distance transmission of computer-based information. It  was first introduced in French by Simon Nora and Alain Minc in L'informatisation de la Societe (La Documentation Francaise, 1978)

Telematics:1. The convergence of telecommunications and information processing, the term later evolved to refer to automation in  automobiles, such as the invention of the emergency warning system for  vehicles. GPS navigation, integrated hands-free cell phones, wireless  safety communications and automatic driving assistance systems all are  covered under the telematics umbrella. 2. The science of Telecommunications and Informatics applied in wireless technologies and  computational systems. 802.11p, the IEEE standard in  the 802.11 family and also referred to as Wireless Access for the Vehicular Environment  (WAVE), is the primary standard that addresses and enhances Intelligent Transportation System. 3. Emad Isaac, CTO of the Morey Corporation  defines Telematics as "The potential for collection, aggregation, and  storage of pertinent data that can be digested locally, or  post-processed remotely." While it is applicable to the vehicle market,  this definition suggests a more universally applicable technology as a  superset of M2M (Machine to Machine) connectivity, and as part of an  "intelligent network of connected things".
