According to The Society of Telecommunications Engineers the integrated use of telecommunications and informatics – can help manage live traffic updates, smart routing and tracking or rapid roadside assistance in case of accidents or breakdown (Athavale, 2013). Being that road safety is an important topic around the world it is clear that something needs to be done about it.Telematics will be able to jumpstart improvements in areas such as public health, injury prevention, and traffic management. Things that will become available through telematics will be tracking the wind speed, moisture on the surface due to oil spills and speed of vehicles, providing emergency call services and wide-angle cameras. (Athavale, 2013) Warnings are sent out through a pre-registered SIM card that will alert the driver when road conditions are faulty.
For the future outlook of this technology, the system is useful in pinpoint any existing bad habits and suggests steps to improve your driving behavior. The downsides are privacy issues, night driving restrictions and the low mileage limits. Please let us know about your thoughts on this topic.
