Telematics box (eCall / ERA‑GLONASS / SVT):
Beginning in 2018, eCall will be a mandatory feature for each new car sold in the European Union. Simply combining an LTE Cat4 smart‑modem (e.g. TOBY‑L2) with an automotive dead reckoning positioning module (e.g. NEO‑M8L) yields a fully functional telematics/eCall system. It makes use of GNSS tunneling, which is included on all cellular u‑blox modules. The same system also enables the Russian ERA‑GLONASS emergency response system and can be used for other core services, such as stolen vehicle recovery and remote diagnostics.
Vehicle to ecosystem communication (V2x):
In preparation for self‑driving cars and vehicle‑to‑environment communication, this solution enables a car to directly communicate with a nearby hotspot or another car, and quickly exchange information. By using a THEO‑P1 802.11p module and an automotive dead reckoning positioning product (e.g. NEO‑M8L) it is possible to optimize traffic during rush hour and even avoid crashes.
