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 Telematics In-Vehicle Unit (IVU) Functional and Technical Specification is intended to support the growing use of telematics. 

The Specification sets out the core requirements necessary to ensure reliability, accuracy, integrity and security, irrespective of its end use.

All TCA type-approved IVUs are future-ready, allowing transport operators to opt-in to regulatory telematics applications in the future - such as the Intelligent Access Program (IAP), Intelligent Speed Compliance (ISC), On-Board Mass (OBM) systems and the Electronic Work Diary (EWD) – even if they don’t have a need to so today.

The ability to co-locate commercial and regulatory applications in a single Telematics IVU has been enabled through the availability of the National Telematics Framework.

It means end-users 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.

Transport Operators now have the option to obtain a stand-alone type-approved Telematics IVU or obtain one of the type-approve Telematics IVU through the IAP.  See below for further details.
