What is Telematics?
Telematics is a combination of telecommunication and information processing. Telematics in vehicles uses GPS and other telematics devices usually to track vehicle location and its speed. The telematics devices capture the information from the GPS which is transmitted to a server and then it is communicated to the device of the fleet manager. All this information transfer happened using the wireless network.
What are the benefits of vehicle telematics?

- Telematics devices provide insights into the driving habits of the drivers. The drivers can be trained accordingly to encourage safe driving behavior.
