What are Telematics?
Telematics is the process of using wireless technology to connect vehicles and assets so that we can collect data for monitoring purposes. Telematics is commonly used by car manufacturers, insurance companies, fleet managers and many other businesses to monitor vehicle performance and usage in real time. The information collected can be used to improve road safety, reduce fuel consumption, lower maintenance costs and more.
How do Telematics devices relay this information
M2M Telematic devices are equipped with sensors that capture key data such as asset location, fuel levels and time in motion. These IoT asset tracking systems relay this information back to a central location in real-time so that it can be analysed. In most cases, this is achieved by installing an IoT SIM card into the telematics device.
Depending on your IoT connectivity provider, these IoT SIMs may be multi-network compatible. This means that they can roam the networks to improve the reliability of your connection. Multi-network SIMs are particularly useful when your vehicles are travelling through areas where signal is often poor.
