Connected vehicles - the basics

A connected vehicle is equipped with mobile technology, and therefore “connected” via the internet. Telematics is also used to connect cars, by means of a small device that plugs into the vehicle, or through embedded technology. The telematics device acts as an Internet of Things (IoT) hub which sends vehicle data to a cloud service, where it can be processed and accessed by the vehicle owner or fleet manager.

Commonly asked questions

A connected vehicle is a vehicle equipped with mobile technology to connect it with external applications through the Internet. Using telematics devices or embedded technology, a vehicle can send data to a cloud service, where it can be processed and accessed by the vehicle owner or fleet manager.

There is no one focus for future connected vehicle technology, but it is likely that vehicles in the not-too-distant future will all be connected, transmitting data and “interacting” with the road and every other vehicle around them. One area of growing interest is self-driving vehicles, but even before then, connectivity will make roads safer by allowing vehicles to effectively avoid hazards and interact with their environment more intelligently.
Connected fleets bring multiple benefits to fleet managers and owners, including:

• Tracking factors that influence fleet productivity, such as idling time, driving time, customer visits or ignition locations.
• Detecting risky driving behaviour such as harsh braking, speeding or sharp cornering. • Accessing vehicle health data to minimise the risk of unexpected, and potentially dangerous, vehicle failure.
• Getting precise data on fuel usage and inefficient activities like idling in internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEs) or monitoring charge levels, range and battery degradation in EVs.
