How the IoT is keeping drivers informed, entertained and safe
The Connected Car, Fleet Management and Telematics Until teleportation finally arrives – or fleets of delivery drones – M2M has a critical role to play in keeping our roads and vehicles running smoothly and safely. In a report specially commissioned by M2M Now, Jeremy Green of Machina Research examines this multi-faceted market..
The Transport and Telematics sector is the largest and in some ways most exciting segment within the overall M2M market. Machina Research treats the sector as made up of two main components:
- Connected Car – mainly focusing on privately owned motor vehicles, but also including those owned by a third party such as a rental company, leasing agency or car club
- Fleet Management – mainly focusing on specific application/s related to managing groups of vehicles that are owned by organisations, driven by employees and managed as fleets. This includes trucking and logistics companies, service organisations, and taxi companies. It doesn’t include public transport operators, which we deal with elsewhere.
