Video Monitoring BLE and Wireless Sensors 2G/3G to 4G LTE-M Transition Eco-Driving Increasing Complexity and Integration
The article discusses several IoT development trends in the field of telematics and GPS vehicle tracking:
- Video Monitoring: The current video monitoring systems in GPS vehicle tracking are considered outdated compared to stationary video monitoring. The use of technologies like face and object recognition and thermal imaging for visibility in extreme conditions is gaining popularity.
- BLE and Wireless Sensors: Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is evolving as a wireless data transfer technology, enabling new opportunities for wireless sensor manufacturers. This opens up possibilities for the expansion of telematics services with a wide range of new devices and solutions.
- 2G/3G to 4G LTE-M Transition: With the increasing number of connected IoT devices, 2G and 3G networks are becoming overloaded. The solution lies in transitioning to 4G LTE-M networks, which offer low-power and long-range connectivity. Equipment manufacturers need to adapt their products to support next-generation networks.
- Eco-Driving: Eco-Driving focuses on collecting data about driver behavior to improve fleet management and safety. Insurance companies also utilize this data for risk analysis. The future of Eco-Driving lies in Big Data, allowing for the creation of more sophisticated services based on the collected information.
- Increasing Complexity and Integration: Transport monitoring has become more complex, requiring telematics solutions to be seamlessly integrated into larger IT ecosystems. Modern trackers should collect data from various vehicle sensors, work with external systems, and communicate with the car's CAN-buses.
These trends indicate significant changes in telematics equipment and the emergence of new solutions in the near future. Manufacturers need to adapt to meet the evolving demands of the industry and provide more sophisticated and integrated trackers.
