Internet of Things (IoT) technology is everywhere today, from the home to the office. One of the less familiar yet more exciting applications of IoT devices is in vehicles. One application of this technology, telematics, has seen rising popularity in both consumer and commercial circles–and it’s easy to see why.

Telematics covers a broad spectrum of technologies, from GPS navigation to IoT-enabled maintenance computers. Now, you can find all of these features on a single device, sometimes built into the vehicle itself. With the telematics market poised to reach $103 billion by 2022, the benefits of these technologies are increasingly evident.
