Type-approval involves the assessment of telematics devices against the performance-based requirements contained in TCA’s Telematics Device Functional and Technical Specification.

Mr Andrew Rossington, Chief Product Officer at Teletrac Navman, said, “This next generation device for the future adds to our suite of telematics solutions available to the industry, allowing operators to choose the right solution for their needs, using applications of the National Telematics Framework.”

He added, “The VT102 supports current applications of the National Telematics Framework, such as the Road Infrastructure Management (RIM) application, Telematics Monitoring Application (TMA) and Intelligent Access Program (IAP) – already available through Teletrac Navman for transport businesses looking to improve access and increase payload.”

“The new device has been designed to support the widest possible variety of use cases. This provides customers with the flexibility of being able to opt-in into regulatory applications without needing to upgrade their hardware.”

Mr Rossington said, “Telematics has been the cornerstone of breaking down performance barriers within the transport industry—with more than 15 years’ experience in the field, Teletrac Navman is dedicated to the ongoing development of technology that helps operators meet the standards to enrol in and reap the significant benefits of crucial road access arrangements, and other technology-based reforms in the future.
