Connected Vehicle Data

Using telematics devices, cars can distribute data for many purposes for an end-user. Car data is created by electrical sensors linked to the ECU or Electronic Control Unit. An ECU is linked to an onboard telematics device which transmits live data. A user in a central location receives this data over the air, with an end interface that can be configured in a way that works for their business.Many attributes of a car can be transmitted live or at set intervals using GPS and mobile data networks.

Using car data, fleet management companies analyse their vehicles to help reduce costs, prevent maintenance issues and schedule service appointments in advance. Governments and councils can use car technical data to better manage traffic. Insurance companies can have real-world use cases for their customers and the introduction of smart cities with connected cars results in more efficient infrastructure. Most importantly, emergency services receive live vehicle data to accurately locate an accident, with automatic triggers to call ambulances if the vehicle senses it is in a severe accident.

What Is Vehicle Capabilities Data?

The capability data combines all of this to report to a central hub, informing them of an incident. Once the capabilities data is reported, the location is available to send to emergency and recovery services.

Capabilities data covers several main topics. When sensors detect a crash, breakdown, battery guard warning, or any lights on the dashboard, an immediate response is required. Capabilities data is collected and sent to High Mobility’s central servers, which can distribute vital vehicle information to third parties such as emergency services and roadside assistance.

Use Cases

High Mobility’s advanced API has a range of useful features during an accident. When reporting a crash, data such as live vehicle location, ignition status, airbag deployment status, G sensor data and more are sent wirelessly to central fleet management operations.

From here, relevant authorities can be informed to address the situation as quickly and efficiently as possible. Using Capabilities data the right way can assist in saving lives, reducing crashes and providing a safer road infrastructure.
