Telematics Update Vehicle Tracking 2003

It is aimed at tracking companies, insurance companies, telematics service providers, wireless operators, car manufacturers, installer, software providers and (heavily discounted to ) fleet owners, leasing and car/ truck rental companies.

With the introduction of changes in legislation, insurance requirements and new road taxation, Europe is on the verge of compulsory tracking systems in most vehicles.

- Don Armour, International Manager, Policy Directorate, FTA
- Martyn Randle, Research Engineer and cat 5 working group founder, Thatcham
- Brian Lee, Risk Manager Motor Underwriting, Norwich Union
