Telematics

<p><span>GeoTab's GO5 is a telematics measurement tool for GPS vehicle tracking. </span></p>Telematics is the integration of wireless communications, vehicle monitoring systems, and location devices. The term telematics combines “telecommunications” and “informatics.” Literally defined, telematics is the integration of wireless communications, vehicle monitoring systems, and location devices. Telematics has become a tool to monitor idling time, help reduce bad driving behaviors, and eliminate unauthorized vehicle use. Vehicle telematics systems also are increasingly used to provide remote diagnostics. A vehicle’s built-in system identifies a mechanical or electronic problem, and the telematics package can automatically transmit this information to the vehicle manufacturer, fleet manager, or service organization.

GPS, AVL, MRM, WiFi, and RFID are just a few acronyms representing telematics systems and technologies. The growing list is only one indication of the expanding use and variety of applications telematics offer.
