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 Failure Message Data?

Collecting the right information will determine what failure message will be displayed. Failure message data includes the ID code of the failure, the message type of the failure and what caused the failures, including the description.

Use Cases

A vehicle can fail in many ways. For instance, when fuel pressure is too low, the engine will not function properly. A failure message will display on the driver dashboard or be sent remotely to fleet operators indicating the fault. Fuel pressure sensors pick up this information which causes a domino effect on the rest of the engine sensors that pick up incorrect signals.

The electrical system in modern vehicles is so large, any incorrect voltage readings may indicate a fault. This is where a failure message appears based on the circuit causing the incorrect voltage. Pointing straight to where a technician needs to look to fix the issue.

Getting to the root of the failure message quickly reduces vehicle turnaround time. Having a minimal effect on productivity within a business's fleet is ideal, which is where High Mobility’s advanced API comes in. Taking vehicle data to the next level with remote access to hundreds of data points using one central operation.
