Below are few major features of Telematics
Q1. What is Telematics?
Telematics is a technology that monitors the information of an individual vehicle or an entire fleet. It is an interdisciplinary field that composes vehicular technologies, electrical engineering, computer science, and telecommunications. It gathers the data like engine diagnostics, driver behavior, vehicle activity. The data is then visualized on software that helps the operator in managing their resources
Q2. What are telematics devices?
A telematics device is installed into your vehicle which is often provided by your insurance company. It collects the data of your driving behavior like how fast you drive, the distance you drive, and how fast you brake. This program can help you in getting a premium discount only if your data shows that you are a safe and cautious driver. It can also help in describing features such as traffic, live weather, and parking information.
Q3. List some practical applications of vehicle telematics?
Various applications are:
Q4. List some benefits of telematics in fleet management?
Q5. Can you tell the top commercial Telematics companies in the world?
The top commercial Telematics companies are:
AirIQ, Fleetmatics Group, MiX Telematics, TomTom, Trimble, Actsoft, Ctrack, FleetBoard, KORE, Masternaut.
Q6. What is a telematics box?
Telematics box also known as telematics box is an electronic device installed in a vehicle to analyze the driver’s performance. It is a part of the insurance policy.
Q7. Please explain the functions of Data Link Layer?
Q8. What is a Communication system?
A communication system is a system used to transmit information between two points. It is the process of transmission and reception of information. Elements included in communication are Transmitter, channel or medium, and receiver. It comprises many systems like transmission systems, telecommunications networks, tributary stations, relay stations, and terminal equipment to form an integrated system for better communication.
Q9. What is Sliding window protocol?
A sliding window is a technique used to send the various frames at a time. It controls the data packets between two points for the gradual and reliable delivery of data frames. Slide window is also used in the transmission control protocol. This method is also known as windowing.
Q10. What is Ethernet?
Ethernet is a technology that connects the computer together in LAN (Local area network). Since the 1990s, this method has been the most accepted method to connect multiple computers together. The principle that lies behind this technology is that multiple computers have access to it and can share the data at any time.
Sometimes, two computers share the data simultaneously which causes the collision and as a result, both computers stop sharing. These computers then wait for a while before trying again. A special protocol is used in this situation to deal with such problems which are known as Carrier sense multiple access with collision detect (CSMA/CD).
Q11. What is dynamic memory allocation in OS?
Dynamic Memory allocation is a method by which memory is allocated to a variable during run time.
