FAMILY CAR TRACKING AND MONITORING WITH OBD GPS DEVICES

INTRO

The global market for private and family cars is not only huge, it is growing year on year. So is the demand for responsible driving, safety, behaviour awareness, fuel efficiency, timely maintenance, and auto theft risk reduction using the latest technologies. To meet the needs of the B2C market, we at Teltonika Telematics have developed a practical vehicle GPS tracking, monitoring and messaging solution.

CHALLENGE

There is an impressive variety of vehicle telematics products and solutions to support all types of corporate fleets - route optimisation, driver behaviour monitoring, vehicle maintenance scheduling, anti-theft, speed limitation, fuel economy, green solutions, etc. You name it. You name it, you can get it.

But what about private passenger cars, SUVs, family vehicles, and camper vans then? According to Statista, only in the year 2021 alone, some 57 million passenger cars were produced worldwide. The B2C automotive market is huge and growing, with its own challenges and requirements, which also presents a great opportunity for profitable IoT-related projects.

No doubt, like any fleet manager or business owner, private drivers and families are interested in tracking and monitoring the status and location of their vehicles, want to keep them in good condition, keep family members and cars as safe as possible, improve awareness and accountability, avoid road accidents, minimise running costs, insurance premiums and so on.

Car security also remains a major concern. There are plenty of conventional car alarms to suit all budgets and tastes available on the internet or in specialist shops, but there are a couple of problems - professional car thieves know how to disable them, and conventional security systems rely on other people who can hear the alarm to look after the car in danger. Unfortunately, this works about as well as you might expect.

To address these challenges, meet the B2C market demand for vehicle telematics expertise and assist private vehicle owners, Teltonika Telematics introduces a practical, modern solution using the OBD GPS trackers.

SOLUTION

On-board Diagnostic vehicle GPS devices are accurate, affordable, small and lightweight, have a sufficient set of tracking parameters and features, and take literally moments to install. Nothing complicated, no mess or confusion and no extra fees, making them the right choice for customers in the B2C market segment.

For this use case, we chose the brand new, compact Teltonika FMC003 tracker with the latest generation of electronic components. It is a Plug & Play vehicle GPS device dedicated to OBD applications and allows to read OEM parameters including Real Odometer and Real Fuel Level data.

How it works - the FMC003 model tracks vehicle location via GNSS, multiple vehicle parameters of interest and their status in real-time. The device sends the gathered data, combined with its GNSS location details, via a GSM network to a server for analysis. Using the dedicated software or mobile app, or both, data can be monitored on a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

If something out of the ordinary happens to a vehicle, a driver (car owner or other responsible person) receives an immediate notification. This makes it possible to take appropriate action in good time - for example, looking through the window to check on the car, intervening immediately if necessary, calling a family member, the police or relevant authorities, the insurance company, the auto repair shop or garage, etc.

As a result, a vehicle owner can effortlessly track, receive relevant and immediate status notifications and monitor the vehicle around the clock, anywhere in the world. For example, its current location, trip details and history, alarm driving detection (sporty or racing driving, inattentive behaviour, excessive speeding), low or abnormally fast battery drain, fuel consumption data, engine started, vehicle moved outside the locked area, tracker jamming, suspicious vibration and towing detection, diagnostic trouble codes, etc.

The results are impressive - greatly improved awareness of the vehicle and the whereabouts of the family member driving it (teenage driver or pregnant wife), vehicle safety, health status due to timely maintenance, comprehensive reports, lower insurance premiums, reduced overall costs and, to put it mildly, less cause for worry. Not to mention a good night's sleep.
