GPS & TELEMATICS
What is the difference between GPS & Telematics? Some believe they are the same product when in fact they are not.
GPS - Global Positioning System
GPS is a satellite navigation system used to determine the ground position of an object or, quite simply, it tracks your vehicles position.
Communicates with a Satellite
Telematics is a method of monitoring a vehicle by combining a GPS system with on-board diagnostics. It's possible to record – and map – exactly where a car is, speed, harsh braking, hard accelerating, vehicle diagnostics.
Transmits over cell networks
HOW TELEMATICS WORKS
Fleet telematics gathers a range of data using Global Positioning System (GPS) technology
sensors and vehicle engine data provide fleet operators with the information they need to manage their fleet.
Global Positioning System (GPS) technology - powers live visibility into vehicle location, speed and movement within points of interest through geofencing
Sensors – enable the capture of data on driver activity, including aggressive acceleration, harsh braking and erratic cornering
Engine diagnostics – these solutions pull data directly from the in vehicle diagnostics system and are primarily used to gather real time data on fuel efficiency and vehicle odometer readings that help power digital fleet maintenance solutions.
Data is temporarily stored in a telematics device that is installed in each vehicle
Then transmitted over private cellular networks to secure servers.
It is this central data hub that enables fleet management software to provide easy-to-understand visualizations that help fleet managers optimize their operation.
