"The MT 3060 platform supports a family of intelligent OBD-II solutions
that addresses the strategic focus of our
Simplicity. The MT 3060 platform is a family of plug-and-play, self-installed devices that can be deployed in minutes by any driver. The MT 3060 simply inserts into the OBD-II port of a vehicle, without taking a vehicle out of service. The family of MT 3060 products avoids costly and timely professional installations, and allows for scalable application platforms, provisioning and customer service models in the commercial telematics and consumer telematics markets. It also supports all five vehicle engine OBD-II protocols. So no matter the application — fleet management, usage-based insurance, or driver behavior management — or the region of the world, the MT 3060 is the ideal option for customers charged with lowering upfront telematics costs while improving safety and productivity.
Most Advanced Features and Customer Support Capabilities. The MT 3060 boasts a highly sensitive 1000 Hz sampling 3-axis accelerometer and GPS along with advanced technology for accurate impact detection — enabling it to detect driver behaviors such as vehicle speed, location, hard braking, cornering and acceleration. The MT 3060 further optimizes network connectivity performance by a high efficiency innovative antenna design and disconnect alert feature using an on-board backup battery.
The family of MT 3060 products leverages Novatel Wireless' years of
combined resources of in-house development of advanced cellular
technologies with M2M experience. For the highest customer service,
Self Contained Access to Cloud Applications. The MT 3060 family provides the most flexible means of collecting critical vehicle information and connecting it to end-user applications for a variety of business critical needs. The built-in, programmable rules engine monitors external conditions and captures customer-defined threshold events critical to effective commercial and consumer telematics applications, such as excessive engine speed, rapid acceleration, harsh braking, speed violations, and excessive idling. It also responds instantaneously to pre-defined conditions related to location, ignition, geo-fencing, trip reporting, and other events.
Over-the-Air Device Management and
Serviceability. The MT 3060 device is designed for full
compatibility with Novatel Wireless' N4A™ Communications and
MT Monitor Mobile Application. The MT 3060 is complemented by Novatel Wireless' new MT Monitor mobile application. This mobile application is designed to simplify the out-of-the-box experience for MT 3060 and provides an easy way to install and monitor the device. Effective troubleshooting of any identified issues is enabled via the MT Monitor's intuitive user interface. Powered by N4A™ CMS and Device Manager, the MT Monitor is designed to be used by both professional installers of the device and end users across applications such as fleet management and user based insurance (UBI). The mobile application will be available for both Android and iOS based smartphones and tablets.
The new MT 3060 platform is designed to support multiple air interfaces, and will be available in GSM/GPRS, CDMA or HSDPA versions with additional features and functionality targeted towards application service providers, system integrators, enterprises and insurers in the global Commercial and Consumer Telematics Markets. The MT 3060 platform will also include optional features like Bluetooth connectivity to enable low power sensor management, personal area networking with smartphone applications and to enable emergency hands free calling.
Commercial Telematics is after-market or factory-installed telematics
for non-consumer telematics applications, such as fleet management,
trailer tracking (providing sensor data for temperature, humidity,
vibration, contents information) and other asset tracking. According to
Consumer Telematics involves devices installed by the consumer or
non-automaker third party for context applications, such as UBI, pay as
you drive insurance, and vehicle recovery. According to
Samples of the first device in the MT 3060 family are now available for commercial and consumer telematics programs. For more information please visit www.nvtl.com.
