iWave unveils cost-optimized telematics connect hub

iWave recently launched Telematics Connect Hub for fleet management and telematics in Electric Vehicles, Racing motorbikes, industrial machinery, and off-road machinery. It is powered by an Arm Cortex-A7 Micro-Processor, 2 CAN-FD Ports, GNSS, accelerometer and gyroscope. Integrated with LTE Cat-1 Bis and Bluetooth wireless connectivity options, the telematics hub enables seamless connectivity between vehicles and networks. It has a rugged enclosure with an IP67 protection class, which houses the Telematics Hub. It offers protection against shock, vibration, dust, and water. The integrated hardware secure element on the hub ensures the important security block in connected vehicles and in-vehicle networking applications. Furthermore, this security component supports secure firmware updates, CAN Message Authentication, High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) cryptographic support, and electric vehicle (EV) battery authentication.

“The Telematics Connect hub, optimized for cost, powers telematics applications in electric vehicles, two-wheelers, passenger cars, and off-highway vehicles. Furthermore, it is designed with the required security” said Tawfeeq Ahmed, Associate Director – Marketing at iWave. “The hub features CAN-FD ports, inertial sensors, LTE, and Bluetooth connectivity. It also helps customers make better decisions on their fleet and actionable insights through data.”

The telematics connect hub in electric vehicle helps visualize driver and vehicle performance. It also gathers actionable insights on battery health, charging schedule, EV Station’s analytics, routing, and dispatch workflows. In two-wheelers, off-highway vehicles, and industrial machinery, engineers build the telematics hub to enable use cases such as fleet management, navigation analytics, and vehicle diagnostics.

With the support for a Linux BSP with APIs for all peripherals of the connect hub, customers are provided with the versatility and transparency needed. This enables them to construct their customized software and analytics applications. Moreover, customers can port their custom data logging and edge logic, analytics, and telemetry application layer. They can also integrate with a cloud platform of their choice and manage device management and OTA software layer.

iWave also offers complementary protocol stacks such as UDS Client, UDS Server, ISO 11898, J1939 and ISO 15675-4, which can be ported on the Telematics Connect Hub, making the solution compatible with different vehicle standards, architectures and use cases.

iWave, an embedded system engineering and solutions company, specializes in the design and manufacturing of telematics control units, telematics gateways, and connected automotive solutions. Moreover, with a strategic focus on the automotive vertical market, iWave empowers automotive OEMs with edge computing platforms, telematics solutions, and ODM design services.
