This solution was constructed to aid rental and car service enterprises to monitor vehicles and their maintenance requirements. The solution included a WiFI based OBD2 module (for older vehicles that are not factory fitted with these modules that are becoming de facto in new gen automobiles) and a cloud backend.
The diagnostic information and alerts/notifications gathered from these vehicles can be directed to service stations and help in predictive analytics for servicing as well as inventory management of spare parts, tyres etc. The addition of a camera based visual analytics module in rental cars can constantly monitor driver behaviour. By correlating this data with engine parameters like fuel consumption pattern, acceleration and braking intensity and patterns etc, the driver efficiency and risk factors can be rated and used in tariff models. The VeCrear Cloud/mobile team, embedded team and Cognitive Intelligence team have collaborated to build this prototype required by a leading US telco
