Novatel Wireless and RAC Motoring Services Sign Agreement for Advanced Telematics Solutions
RAC to launch Novatel Wireless Advanced Telematics Platform for Commercial and Consumer Telematics Services
With over seven million customers the RAC is dedicated to providing a one-stop-shop for motorists' needs -- providing roadside assistance, insurance, vehicle inspections and checks, legal services and up-to-the-minute traffic and travel information.
"The RAC is committed to providing the very highest levels of service to
our customers. We will target our members, insurance clients and
corporate fleet customers with this new service including advanced crash
detection, remote vehicle diagnostics, fuel saving, driver scoring, and
fleet management," says
"The launch of RAC Advance follows months of ongoing cooperation between
the two companies," says
The MT 3060 platform is an integrated, system-level technology solution for commercial and consumer telematics markets. The device simply inserts into the OBDII port of a vehicle, and collects and controls critical vehicle data, and securely delivers that information to the cloud. It boasts a highly sensitive 3-axis accelerometer and parallel GPS/GNSS satellite location capability, and offers the most sophisticated and sensitive crash detection.
As part of RAC Advance, RAC's MT 3060 device is designed for full compatibility with Novatel Wireless' N4A™ Device Manager, a robust M2M software platform which accelerates customer application integration, configures, manages, and supports Novatel Wireless' M2M devices.
RAC Advance will allow the RAC member's vehicle to remotely communicate with base to provide diagnostic information that could potentially identify certain vehicle faults before they result in a stressful or inconvenient breakdown. In addition, RAC members will be able to check multiple levels of performance and key information via an application on their smartphone or tablet. In the event of a breakdown, RAC Advance will allow the response team to remotely connect with the onboard diagnostics software helping identify the fault and accurately position the motorist's location, enabling the rescue service to quickly and effectively dispatch a patrol.
