In-Car Cleverness, has adopted specialised cellular solutions from Novatel Wireless, a leading provider of wireless solutions.
Together with Novatel Wireless’s advanced technologies, In-Car Cleverness can now support all five ‘plug and play’ engine OBD protocols (on-board diagnostics), while offering unique features for telematics applications, such as highly-sensitive dual accelerometers, advanced diagnostics, pin-point GPS and location technology, programmable platforms, and additional cellular services to refine its value added services.
The new solution will be deployed in the UK in May 2015 and will be commercially available throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) for commercial and consumer telematics markets, where growth is expected to increase considerably.
Demand for in-car telematics has accelerated due to road safety initiatives throughout EMEA. These schemes advance the need for additional services like theft-tracking, emergency services, remote vehicle monitoring, roadside assistance, driver behaviour monitoring and vehicle diagnostics.
Novatel Wireless supplies In-Car Cleverness with its MiFi Drive portfolio of specialised cellular solutions, creating one of the most powerful telematics solutions available on the market today.
"Jointly, Novatel Wireless and In-Car Cleverness now offer one of the most advanced telematics solution for fleets, leasing companies, dealers and usage-based insurers, in an intuitive and easy-to-use package." said Martin Bramwell, managing director of In-Car Cleverness.
"With Novatel, we can now offer unrivalled pinpoint vehicle tracking, precision accident detection and accurate driver behaviour profiling which gives our offering the competitive edge we were looking for."
John Carney, Novatel Wireless’s executive vice president of sales and marketing, said: "In-Car Cleverness delivers an impressive solution via the Onboard™ platform.
