Telematics and connected in-vehicle services based on mobile communication network technologies (LTE/4G, 5G) providing features such as controlling vehicle comfort functions via mobile app or checking an electric vehicle's charging status are now ready for the next evolutionary step — the fully connected car.
Cellular communication modules are now more than powerful enough to run Linux and macchina.io EDGE on one or more of its CPU cores. This enables the evolutionary step from simple feature-restricted telematics systems to dynamically extensible, flexible and secure platforms based on modern IoT technologies. Such platforms make it possible to dynamically deploy new software features during the entire lifecycle of the vehicle. In-vehicle apps distributed through an "app store" enable car manufacturers and their partners to introduce new services and open new revenue opportunities.
Possible applications are automatic remote vehicle systems monitoring, emergency assistance, real-time fleet management, automatic log books, optimized service and maintenance logistics, theft protection, as well as car-sharing and rental services.
macchina.io EDGE has already been deployed in millions of vehicles. Contact us to discuss how macchina.io EDGE can turbo-charge your next vehicle telematics project.
