Telematics solutions play a pivotal role in minimizing EV downtime. They can detect and diagnose EV issues early, enabling swift and efficient repairs.
The most efficient diesel engines emit dangerous substances such as nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM10). These pollutants are of particular concern in dense urban areas with high numbers of pedestrians and cyclists, which are typical of the conditions in which buses operate.
Hybrid electric, fuel cell electric and full battery electric buses are currently being used in a number of public transport networks around the world. Different types of electric bus technology vary in terms of whether electrical energy is generated or stored onboard.
Vehicle telematics is an interdisciplinary field that combines telecommunications, informatics, computer science, electrical engineering, and vehicular technologies to create a vehicle telematics system that functions to collect and derive insight from vehicle telematics data and ultimately improve the efficiency and safety of the overall driver experience.
It combines GPS systems, onboard vehicle diagnostics, wireless telematics devices, and black box technologies to record and transmit vehicle data, such as speed, location, maintenance requirements and servicing, and cross-reference this data with the vehicle’s internal behaviour. This information can be used in real-time analysis to improve overall driver safety and reduce costs and improve performance for commercial vehicles.
A shift to an electric bus fleet necessitates an understanding of the technology. The design of an electric bus and the necessary infrastructure depend on the application scenarios. The battery size depends on the drive cycle, terrain features and other operating conditions. This Battery management is done through efficient telematics integrated within the EVs at all times.

New use cases for EV telematics are emerging all the time. For example, EV telematics solutions can now be used to facilitate V2G (vehicle-to-grid) communication and V2X (vehicle-to-everything) communication. V2G communication allows EVs to communicate with the grid and sell excess electricity back to the grid. V2X communication allows EVs to communicate with other vehicles and infrastructure to improve safety and efficiency.
EV telematics providers are increasingly exploring ways to monetize the data that they collect. This could involve selling data to third-party companies or developing new services and applications based on the data.
Many public transport authorities have a great interest in introducing zero-emission electric buses. However, the transformation process from diesel to electric bus systems opens up a vast design space which seems prohibitive for a systematic decision-making process.
Not all telematics devices are EV Friendly. You need to be certain that your fleet management system fully supports the data generated by electric vehicles. EVs have unique metrics that need to be leveraged to ensure you can maximize their performance and range for the desired return on investment.
There are no mandatory standards, so telematics providers must develop their systems specific to makes and models of EVs. Be sure to take the time to confirm that the EVs you have now, and any models you are considering will be fully supported.
EV Telematics systems, which enable communication between a vehicle and an established network, aim to solve these issues with more effective route management, energy and charge reporting, GPS vehicle tracking, and battery health monitoring, along with all the other aspects of the equation.
By 2030, the European Union will ban the sale of cars that run on fossil fuels. To reduce CO2 emission, the EU will reduce taxes, introduce subsidies, and adopt incentive programs to stimulate the EV market. Similar programs have been launched in the USA, China, Japan, and other countries. Foreign authorities have a strong intention to stop using traditional cars we have all grown accustomed to.
This will help aim into a better integrated approach to EV Telematics and development within the countries of importance. Most likely, general approaches to electric vehicle tracking will remain the same as fossil fuel cars. However, developers of satellite monitoring platforms should upgrade their products to be compatible with new characteristics typical of electric vehicles.

There has been recent technological advancement made within the operational capability of electric vehicles in order to increase its viability and operational efficiency through varied multidisciplinary integration of IC Engine and Electric Motor based EV Technology in order to form a hybrid operational component. The focus has been on implementing better telematics into the vehicles at all times.
The Autonomous Cars is the latest advancement towards the integration of the EV Telematics. Autonomous vehicles, like human drivers, depend on sensors to perceive their environment. Sensors like cameras, Lidar, Radar, Sonar, GPS, IMUs can be used to make proficient autonomous cars. They collect data and pass it on to the sensor fusion, typically via MIPI (mobile industry processor interface).
Sensor fusion, after compiling data from multiple sensors, allows room for the vehicle to make a decision. Say the camera as well as a radar detect a nearby object—like a passing pedestrian that is six meters away. Sensor fusion does a couple of things here: it makes sure that this observed pedestrian is exactly six meters away by eliminating “noise” from accurate data.
