Messaging data falls under two main categories. The handle or subject of the message and the text message itself. Both can be a string of text, numbers or both. Messaging data could relay much important information about the vehicle, the driver or the surroundings to alert fleet managers or users.
When a vehicle is due for service, messaging data can be sent over the air to a garage requesting it to be booked in. This removes the need for fleet managers to manually arrange the appointment and makes it a smooth process.
Fleet managers can set up location or distance alerts by taking these data points to write a text message which can be sent to anyone. Whether messaging data is used for emergency services informing them of a car's location if it has been in a crash. Or simply an end-of-day distance covered and location reminder of vehicles out in the field.
Drivers may simply want to use messaging data to send an ordinary text to a family member, manager and in the future, possibly to other road users.
