Telematics. Now it is simple.
The Internet of Things helps to integrate different functions of control and communications in transport systems. “Smart modules” are used in all transport systems’ components: in the very vehicles, within the infrastructure, and are applied by users and drivers. Intensive interaction between such modules enables the carrying out of internal and external communications, creates systems of road traffic control, “smart parking,” road toll systems, logistics systems, safety control and road assistance systems.
Tires vendor Michelin installs “smart” sensors, not only in the manufacturing equipment, but also in the product itself. Michelin “implants” IoT-sensors into their tires, thus helping drivers (truck drivers, for one) learn to save fuel.
“Smart devices” are also widely used in transport telematics:
- flexible vehicle insurance (pay-as-you-go)
- emergency accident response (ERA-GLONASS and eCall)
- charging road tolls for heavy vehicles.
If the task of precise geo-location of moveable objects (for example, cars) was solved comparatively long ago by development of satellites, then the task of the cost-effective sending of outgoing information from a car anywhere in the world becomes solvable only with the creation of the LoRaWAN protocol and Lace system. Now that such a burning technical need has been satisfied, it becomes possible to realize a great range of projects, potentially profitable and useful both to system integrators and users of transport systems.
