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 Chassis Data?

Off-roading has a huge following, and chassis data here is useful. Adjusting the suspension and ride heights are vital when tackling rough terrain. Not only does it give drivers the best chance in overcoming obstacles, but it also protects the underbody of the vehicle.

Chassis data uses onboard vehicle sensors to determine the height of the vehicle. It also calculates the spring rate for the suspension to make sure it is being adjusted accordingly. Making sure it is in a safe condition for the vehicle to function.

Use Cases

When loading a vehicle, the suspension and ride height are affected. Chassis data can be fed to a vehicle module that adjusts the suspension level of a vehicle equipped with air suspension for example. This ensures the vehicle feels as close to normal driving as possible, even with a heavy load.

Also, when driving in extreme weather conditions, or on race tracks, chassis data can be analyzed for improvements in lap times, terrain ability and much more. Sending this chassis data remotely using cloud services from High Mobility enables remote access to users.

Race teams, fleet managers and commercial businesses can all utilise chassis data to make sure the vehicle is working effectively on the terrain it is dealing with.
