Green, clean, cost effective and intelligent travel has become a new trend in this era.
The automotive industry is shifting its attention away from infotainment to transformative technologies that will enable Mobility as a Service paradigm to spring to life.
And the future starts now, the automotive industry now appears close to substantial change, engendered by autonomous, or "self-driving," vehicle technologies. This technology offers the possibility of significant benefits to social welfare — saving lives; reducing crashes, congestion, fuel consumption, and pollution; increasing mobility for the disabled; and ultimately improving land use.
Autonomous cars are going to have a strong need to be monitored in terms of vehicle health as well as location and ensuring they’re not behaving erratically. That is going to generate a huge amount of information and it’s going to be the job of telematics providers. Telematics will be a key to understand how those vehicles are behaving and interacting with one another.
The challenges facing Quectel are
● Rugged, high quality components
● Cost effective, high volume components for vehicle life span
● Tools and services to simplify integration and accelerate product development
● Real-time data collection and monitoring
● Reliable data transmission
Quectel Wireless Solutions takes these challenges and turns them into opportunities to develop GSM/GPRS, UMTS/HSPA(+), LTE and GNSS modules for automotive applications
● Emergency call
● Navigation and driver assistance
● Vehicle diagnostics
● Stolen vehicle tracking & recovery
The Advantages of Quectel's Modules
Quectel modules that are used in automotive applications are subject to rigid mandatory tests and all modules are manufactured in the ISO/IATF 16949 certified factories. They all can meet stringent environmental & temperature requirements.
Ensure durability that lasts the lifetime of the vehicle with ruggedized designs that meet the industry’s toughest quality and life span requirements.
eCall emergency system can make Quectel modules automatically contact the nearest Public Safety Answering Point, transferring vital information such as time of accident, location of vehicle, Vehicle Identification Number, registered owner, etc. Emergency assistance can be dispatched immediately to shorten response time and save lives.
Accurate and Fast Positioning
Advanced EASY technology and Location Based Service (LBS) respectively ensures Quectel GNSS and cellular modules used in automotive applications can offer accurate and fast positioning in the conditions of no GPS signal reception.
SSL protocol provides a secure connection between a client and a server and can prevent data from being eavesdropped, tampered, or forged during the communication process.
Solution Combining LTE, Wi-Fi & BT Modules
This ensures Internet access by tethering a mobile phone, or with a mobile hotspot, whether portable or built into the car. Quectel Wi-Fi & BT module combining with LTE module make everything stay connected while on the road.
IZat Location Technologies
Quectel LTE modules adopt Qualcomm’s IZat Gen8C. Its ubiquitous Wi-Fi and cellular networks ensure accurate positioning. Using GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou satellites, IZat location technologies pinpoint your position anywhere in the world, even in challenging urban environments.
