Car telematics is a constantly evolving field. Today’s vehicles are fitted with all types of applications; these offer several functions it is well worth getting to know. Before long cars will be smart enough to make their own decisions and even drive themselves.
The current situation of vehicle telematics
Today’s cars, among many other things, are sophisticated pieces of technology and IT engineering. Their purpose is to make driving easier, safer and more convenient in various aspects. These advanced functions range from remote toll payment to the obtaining and broadcasting of real-time information on the state of the roads.
Telematics is also being used to perform a remote vehicle analysis, thus heading off many accidents. The vehicle is able to send its running parameters to a control center, where they can be checked to make sure they do not stray beyond accepted standards and to flag up any problem.
As from 1 April 2018 all new class N1 and M1 vehicles type-approved in the European Union will have to be fitted with the eCall system, to automatically inform a 112 emergency center of any vehicle that has suffered an accident and send along a set of data to help locate and assist it.
In collaboration with Ficosa, GMV has fitted several of these telematic devices in vehicles of renowned makes like Renault, Nissan and Daimler. It has also taken part in electronic tolling projects and services for infrastructure operators, such as Driveon Texpress, set up in Texas (USA) via Ferrovial.
