First, let's define what we mean by telematics. At its most basic level, telematics refers to using technology to transmit information over long distances.
In the automotive industry context, telematics typically refers to the use of sensors, GPS, and other technologies to monitor and transmit data about a vehicle's location, speed, and other performance metrics.
Telematics solutions can be used to track the movements and performance of other types of equipment, such as heavy machinery or even shipping containers. It is typically part of car share software that enables car rental companies to track their vehicles and manage their fleet more efficiently.
