Telematics

What is Telematics?

Telematics is the method of monitoring vehicles, trucks, and other mobile equipment using geolocation and on-board diagnostics (OBD) data derived from sensors located on a mobile vehicle to monitor and capture speed, location, stopping, acceleration, turning, and cornering as well as engine performance such as tire pressure, oil temperature, door locking, etc.

How are telematics useful?

Telematics is now an essential tool for fleet management and for usage-based insurance (UBI).
