The words telecommunication and informatics are combined in telematics. This refers to the integration of communication and information technology for data that is transmitted, stored or received. Telecommunication devices are responsible for doing this. This technical development is not only used in the automotive industry, but other industries are also making increasing use of telematics.
Now the question is: IoT has progressed significantly in the last 10 years so how does this affect your vehicle’s telematics? One example are the customer-centric billing models such as usage-based insurances (UBI) which can be deployed with the help of IoT. Also, predictive maintenance and proactive service management reduce vehicle downtimes. Additionally, IoT brings transparent cost information for end users and fleet operators. These benefits and more can be found in the Vehicle Telematics Download.
