Over 45,000 Telematics IVUs which are able to satisfy TCA requirements are already fitted to vehicles across Australia  

Telematics IVUs may be used to perform any number of functions and services, including tracking, navigation, fleet management, safety, the management of regulatory requirements – along with the ability to interface with vehicle management systems and Cooperative ITS (C-ITS) systems.

The Functional and Technical Specification for Telematics In-Vehicle Units (IVUs) sets out the core requirements necessary to ensure reliability, accuracy, integrity and security, irrespective of its end use.

As at July 2018, there were over 45,000 Telematics IVUs installed invehicles which are able to meet the requirements of the Telematics IVU Functional and Technical Specification.

All TCA type-approved IVUs are future-ready, allowing consumers to opt-in to applications of the National Telematics Framework telematics.

It means consumers don’t need to install separate, stand-alone devices to perform individual functions, significantly reducing costs by avoiding the need to support numerous stand alone devices.
