Vehicle telematics provide the means to offer a wide variety of services – including collision avoidance, roadside assistance, car positioning and navigation – integrated into an intelligent transport system (ITS) meant to improve the driving experience and security as well as to reduce environmental impact.
Today’s technologies make it possible to connect and exchange data between vehicles - and their in-car network - and the external world through the use of Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) or Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) connectivity.
Examples of telematics applications include popular insurance boxes, aftermarket and OEM systems for emergency calls and remote assistance to drivers as well as Firmware Over-The-Air (FOTA) mobile software management solutions and accessories for in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspots.
ST’s broad offering of automotive telematics systems include solutions for in-car and V2X connectivity as well as GNSS positioning and sensors for vehicle motion and position monitoring and crash detection. We also have a family of application-specific microprocessors with a scalable feature set and powerful processing capabilities that can enable a cost-effective implementation of large modem-independent telematics solutions.
