Telematics can involve any of the following:
- the technology of sending, receiving and storing information via telecommunication devices in conjunction with affecting control on remote objects
- the integrated use of telecommunications and informatics for application in vehicles and with control of vehicles on the move
- GNSS technology integrated with computers and mobile communications technology in automotive navigation systems
- (most narrowly) the use of such systems within road vehicles, also called vehicle telematics
Increased use of telematics to provide more data and better insights, is something you can count on in coming years. With a help of devices you can monitor things like policy abuse, or optimize route and PM scheduling.
Rich Zambroski, truck excellence manager at Element Fleet Management said that telematics can show you what you’ve been missing by providing better insight into your fleet and can help you execute on scalable improvement plans, change driver behavior – which is key for ROI – and measure results.
