Commercial Vehicle Telematics and Security Forum

Vehicular telematics – the integrated use of telecommunications and information processing, such as the invention of the emergency warning system for vehicles, GPS navigation, integrated hands-free cell phones, wireless safety communications and automatic driving assistance systems – is now entering an exciting phase where the internet of things has revolutionised the fields of fleet management, vehicle security and manpower behavior on the roads.

At its well-attended conference last year, Vukani Communications had telematics experts shedding light on the overall scope of telematics insofar as it related to vehicle security, the regulatory framework, recovery and rescue situations, driver behavior; among others. This year, discussions will go further into the in-depth analysis of big data and how it can be processed and packaged into information that can be useful to fleet managers and decision makers in fleet management organisations. And since companies are big on saving costs, there will be presentations on how telematics technology can help on fuel saving and route optimisation. Discussions will also venture into how disruptive technologies have affected the commercial vehicle and telematics sector, as well as trends and the future of telematics technology.

The 2017 Commercial Vehicle Telematics Conference is scheduled for the 22 nd until the 23 rd of August 2017 at the Emperors Palace Convention Centre in Johannesburg, and its running theme will be Unpacking the Value of Telematics Data in the Commercial Vehicle Industry. As usual there will be refreshing insights from experts in the commercial vehicle, vehicle security and telematics industry, on the challenges and opportunities that abound in the industry.
