Telit automotive solutions: infotainment and security for an enhanced driving experience
Navigation systems and telephone interfaces are standard features of today's cars. The latest head units also support the mobile internet, thus providing the driver with real-time information about his current location. On-board Wi-Fi hot spots enable passengers to work productively while on the road.
Sensors that register and transmit driving distances and habits allow insurance companies to develop dynamically-calculated premiums based on actual vehicle usage. This insurance model is called "pay as you drive".
M2M technology is also helpful in emergency situations. eCall is a system that is designed to dramatically reduce the response time of rescue services by directly sending crucial information to the relevant Public Service Answering Point (PSAP). AVL (Automatic Vehicle Location) solutions assist vehicle owners in cases of theft and accidents.
Cars have relatively long life cycles, whereas infotainment and security systems evolve at a rapid pace. Therefore it is essential that successor products for modules used by the automotive industry feature identical size, shape, connectors and software interfaces. Telit takes this into account with its family / form factor concept - all modules within one family are interchangeable.
Every module that is used in automotive applications is subject to rigid mandatory tests. Telit's modules GE864-QUAD-AUTOMOTIVE V2 (GSM/GPRS) and UC 864-E-AUTO (UMTS) are specifically designed for the car-making industry and fulfil all relevant specifications.
