Though trends in telematics may be viewed in the use of 2G connectivity in cars, one can say that it’s becoming a thing of the past now. How then can the opportunity be placed by telematics before we are tapped? Recently connected cars are taking a turn in advanced networks, such that car providers are manufacturing cars with faster 3G and 4G network.
Cars with real-time driver safety instruction, fleet maintenance platforms, tools to check fuel and productivity tools are manufactured with no price change from the previous year in the tech world. There is definitely a change in perception of how we see telematics and what it will offer in times to come, that’s why we shall be reviewing top (5) trends that will shape the tech world using telematics.
Trend 1 (Safe Mapping, Efficient and Smart Mechanization)
GPS tracking or call it map navigator has been a genius in helping divers and managers alike align themselves with an online platform and on the go communication while cruising.

Trend 4 (Infotainment)
Information and entertainment these days are inseparable, so also can people not do without them, and this makes telematics even more irreplaceable when it comes to the automobile industry and among vehicle users.
Telematics has availed us with much options which range from GPS-based navigation system to Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, touch screen audio-visual, interactive voice recognition services, phone paring features, and live media streaming services, etc.
Trend 5 (Internet of Things)
The impact of the Internet of Things on Telematics cannot be overemphasized with the integration of everyday objects using internet connections; the future car will definitely be intuitive.
With the Internet of Things and Telematics, cars will become even smarter through the virtual realm of real-time and socio-technological experience.
The use of Telematics, Machine-to-Machine, and the impact of the Internet of Things formed three generation-like environments that will transform our lives.
