ACTIA Telematics and Connectivity

ACTIA Connected Vehicle
Connected Vehicle
Vehicle connectivity is the key to mobility-related technologies. It is at the heart of the interaction of the vehicle and its passengers with their environment. The goal is to provide enhanced safety and improved convenience for passengers while decreasing maintenance and downtime for the user or fleet operator.

The ACTIA Group has a proven track record in vehicle communication know-how in both the light and commercial vehicle fields. Its overall expertise extends beyond telematics hardware design and production to cover portal applications enabling remote vehicle location, maintenance and diagnostic services.

ACTIA Telemactics and Connected Vehicle
ACU-IV Platform
ACTIA believes that a cost effective solution combined with cutting edge technology and with a well tailored system architecture is the right concept for a successfull platform solution. Based on this ACTIA engineered a scalable cross-segment platform for multiple customer sectors, we are just about to launch our fourth generation ACU-IV (ACTIA Connect Unit).

The platform is based on a flexible technology that merges vehicle diagnostics and telematics. Some examples of services available on the ACTIA platform:

  • Automatic emergency call (eCall)
  • Remote services (for example lock/unlock your car)
  • Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Stolen vehicle tracking
  • Remote diagnostic
  • Over The Air Software download
  • Fleet management data collection
  • Vehicle to vehicle communication
  • And so much more

ACTIA Vehicle Telematics
Telematics for OEMs
ACTIA has developed an on-board platform designed to be fitted as original equipment for both cars and commercial/industrial vehicles. The platform fully addresses the present challenges while keeping future expectations in mind:
ACTIA Connected Vehicle and Telematics Solutions

  • Challenges related to new regulations on safety: for example, eCall systems were set to be in general use since by 2015 under European as well as Russian standards with ERA Glonass. ACTIA has participated in the steering group that decided on a standardized implementation of eCall in Europe: HeERO for Harmonized eCall European Pilot. On other continents, in Brazil for example with SIMRAV, new regulations are also imposing greater vehicle connectivity.
  • Challenges related to drivers’ requirements: the car market is developing around functionalities that contribute to enhanced safety, convenience and respect for the environment.
  • Challenges related to manufacturers’ requirements: remote diagnostics, remote software updates, improved customer service (convenience, connectivity, maintenance and repair), etc…

The OEM on-board platform for telematics benefits from the latest technologies and incorporates communication protocols that meet the various current and future regulations (GATS, NGTP 2.0, ACP 245, In-Band modem, EGTS). It is based on an approach that is both global and future-proof, with the very best partnerships in various fields. It incorporates modular system and software architectures, electrical architectures for vehicles, communication modules and a complete range of services around four central themes:


Vehicle Management
(log, maintenance and diagnostics, etc…)

Remote Vehicle Alerts
(over-heating alert, doors closing/opening, location, etc…)

Safety
(notification of accidents, roadside assistance, etc…)

Environmentally Friendly Driving
(analysis of driver behaviour, management of fuel consumption, etc…)

ACTIA Telematics for fleets of vehicles
Telematics for Fleets
Pioneers in managing and transferring vehicle technical data, ACTIA developed ACTIA Fleet. A set of solutions specifically for the transport of goods and passengers.

ACTIA Fleet: a service portal for fleets
Through web applications, the ACTIA Fleet portal enables real time vehicle data to be used remotely, providing numerous advantages: Monitoring data on driving behavior and fuel consumption: Environmentally friendly driving, Rating drivers, CO2 emissions.

  • Preventive maintenance and remote maintenance work: monitoring the main parameters, warning/alarm feedback, battery health.
  • Remote hours of service logging to meet various regulations including but not limited to the ELD mandate.
  • Geo-location of vehicles in real time.
  • Reporting events relative to breathalyzer interlock systems and geo-positioning (coaches).

The advantage of this solution is that it combines on-board equipment and the services portal in order to improve not only the convenience and safety of the driver and passengers but also the vehicle profitability by reducing fuel consumption: a win-win solution for operators.

ACTIA Telematics for fleets of vehicles

ACTIA Fleet: On-board equipment
The ACTIA TGU – Telematics Gateway Unit is tailored to the connectivity needs of trucks, buses and coaches as well as specialty vehicles at the OEM or Fleet level. A latest generation GPS receiver, along with mobile communication ability (GPRS/EDGE and optional Wi-Fi -3G+) enable information to be sent remotely from different ECUs via the CAN network. Additionally, ethernet, USB and RS232 ports enable a multitude of peripherals and accessories to be connected to the TGU.

For integrators, TGU can be supplied with a “TGU-SDK” development kit so that third party applications can be integrated.

A range of display units specially suited to the transport market is also available:

  • DriverAid for the driver to monitor fuel consumption and for the fleet owner to monitor driver behavior such as: idle time, excess speed, harsh braking, harsh acceleration, harsh turning, etc…
  • I-HMI: Multi-function display based on PC Atom, including all connectivity options (3G, GPRS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, CAN) and particularly well suited to applications in the transport industry combining navigation, environmentally friendly driving and the end-users’ ERP systems.
