Recently, we have seen the development of car-sharing services used by individuals, companies, and public institutions alike. Although these customer groups are different, they all want to use vehicles in a convenient and efficient way. Reasons for using such services include fleet optimisation, convenience, sudden need for vehicles, business trips, travelling abroad, etc. In addition, matters, such as car insurance, tyre changing, maintenance or car washing should be taken care of for a customer.
In order to provide car-sharing services, it is necessary to be able to control the locking and unlocking of a car remotely. There is a need for a solution that includes hardware, firmware, and software compatibility. It has to work flawlessly because the safety of the car and the comfort of the customer depend on it. In addition, the management of each car requires a different code, so the database must be large and constantly updated to include new popular car models.
Teltonika has a solution – the vehicle GPS tracker FMB130 and CAN-CONTROL adapter. The adapter allows you to control car doors and works with many of our products, the list of which you will find at the end of this text.
How it works - when the adapter is connected to the CAN bus, it allows scanning of over 300 parameters and controlling the car’s central lock, windows closure, switching on/off turn lights, and boot release. Also, you will be able to check door, parking brake, and light status. Data that can be received in real-time include engine RPM, vehicle speed, information about the current fuel level status from the dashboard, helping you to figure out the range that the car can still cover, and other important parameters.
Electric cars are supported as well with some additional parameters to monitor battery level, charging status, charging cable status, and how much the car can travel with the current battery charge level. You can learn more about the technical aspects of this use case here.
These Teltonika GPS trackers currently support over 1,300 car models, and the list is constantly updated to match new models of the most popular cars. In car-sharing services, the vast majority of the fleet consists of new cars not older than 3 years, which means that their engines support new technologies and produce fewer emissions into the atmosphere, thus, offering an eco-friendly solution.
- Easy to configure devices – the intuitive TCT tool for an easy configuration and the FOTA WEB solution for simple firmware updates over the air, meaning no need to get to the cars and connect to trackers via wires.
- An extensive list of supported cars – more than 1,300 vehicles supported, from the most popular models to electric cars.
- CAN bus data reading – access to the many parameters related to car status and usage analysis, i.e., the data that is crucial for quality service delivery.
The solution for car-sharing services has been successfully implemented by Teltonika Telematics business partners in a number of projects. In addition, we continue to improve our devices based on their feedback. In line with our motto "Easy key to IoT", we offer intuitive tools for easy configuration of the required functionality and the FOTA WEB solution for remotely updating a tracking device firmware.
