- Satellite Tron Connected Car Technology
Any vehicle which is equipped with internet connectivity can be called a connected car. A vehicle equipped with our Satellite Tron is called a “Smart” car. Currently, automobile companies use two kinds of systems in connected cars: Embedded and Tethered systems. An Embedded vehicle will be equipped with a chipset and built-in antenna, and a Tethered system will be equipped with hardware that connects to the driver’s smartphone. A connected vehicle can access/send data, download software updates/patches, connect with other devices (Internet of Things or IoT) and also provide WiFi internet connection to the passengers. The connected car telematics can also be accessed through the Satellite Tron connected technology.
- Features of Satellite Tron Connected Vehicles
A connected vehicle comes equipped with a host of smart and convenient features. The features of connected car technology improve the overall driving and ownership experience, and also adds a safety net with its advanced security features. The smart features of a connected vehicle
Internet Connectivity in Cars – A connected car is always connected to the internet via an embedded chipset or SIM card, and it can access the internet, provided there is stable wireless network coverage. Connected vehicles can also provide onboard WiFi connectivity, download over-the-air updates released by the manufacturer and access other online apps and services.
App to Car Connectivity – Car manufacturers provide a dedicated smartphone app that connects with the vehicle through the wireless network. The app allows users to remotely operate the functions of a car such as locking/unlocking the door, opening sunroof, engine start/stop, climate control, headlight on/off and honk the horn. The app will also help to locate the car via the onboard GPS.
Protecting Your Car and Driver – The connected vehicles come with an important security feature known as Geo-Fencing. In simple words, it creates a geographical boundary on the map and alerts the owner, if the vehicle is driven beyond the set boundary. The geo-fencing can be set via the smartphone app, and this feature is extremely useful.
Vehicle to Vehicle Communication – Vehicle-to-vehicle connectivity technology allows connected vehicles to communicate with each other. The V-2-V enables the sharing of vital information such as traffic movement, road conditions, speed limits and much more. V-2-V technology will be a critical part of autonomous vehicles, which are deemed as the future of mobility.
Entertainment – A connected vehicle will allow you to connect to a host of pre-loaded entertainment services/apps. You can listen to music, internet radio or even watch videos (when the vehicle is parked). Also, you can connect your smartphone to the infotainment system of the car via apps and remotely control the audio/video.
Remote Parking – As the name of the feature suggests, some high-end connected cars even allow you to remotely park the vehicle. Using the smartphone app or the smart key fob, you can get out of your vehicle and maneuver the car to park it in the desired spot. This feature will come in handy in tight parking spaces, when you are not confident about parking the car in a very congested area.
