Telematics Devices

There are a number of different options for data to be transmitted from the vehicle depending on the cost and device portability requirements. The appropriate option will depend on the business requirements in terms of data, the operating conditions and the cost considerations. These range from a simple smartphone solution (no device required) to an advanced self-installed device which connects to the OBDII port of the vehicle.

Smartphone only solution

This option makes use of the internal accelerometer of the actual phone and provides behavioral information for the individual. This is a fairly low tech form of driving style assessment and risk management reliant on driver discipline (for example always driving with the phone and keeping the phone charged).

We often use this application as a “teaser” to encourage consumer interest in the UBI products which may follow.

Self-installed OBD device – Mhub 837

mhub-837

This is an OBDII plug-in device which is self-installed in less than two minutes. It includes a 3-axis accelerometer and proprietary pattern recognition algorithms to provide the most accurate assessment of driver risk in the industry.

The device is also able to provide a real-time accident alert along with indication of incident severity and a full second-by-second reconstruction of the event.

The device can also read DTC Fault Codes and report on those in real time should there be any problems with the vehicle.

The Mhub 837 can connect to the OBDII port and the battery, depending on requirements.

Self Installed Battery connected device – Mhub 846

Mhub846

This device is also self-installed device which connects to the battery in less than two minutes. It can also be installed covertly in the vehicle and connected to ignition power if preferred.

The device also includes a 3-axis accelerometer and the same advanced pattern recognition technology as the 837 device.

The device is also able to provide a real-time accident alert along with indication of incident severity and a full second-by-second reconstruction of the event.

Hard-wired Fleet management device – Mhub 855

MHub855

The Mhub 855 is a Fleet Management device which is typically hard-wired under the dashboard or in the engine compartment.

The device can be connected to in-vehicle CANBus networks, receive RS232 inputs and receive external inputs such as Driver Identification tags, temperature feeds and PTO monitoring.

It can also allow for outputs to control auxiliary equipment such as flashing lights or central locking. The device is also able to provide a real-time accident alert along with indication of incident severity and a full second-by-second reconstruction of the event.
