Abstract

More and more vehicles are equipped with telematics devices that are able to collect data, process data and send information to other devices or a backend system. Some of these telematics devices work hidden and may not even have an own user interface. Most people today own mobile phones, PDAs or the like. These mobile devices can be used as an "external GUI" for the vehicles telematics devices. To do so the mobile device connects wirelessly to the telematics device. Data from the telematics device can be displayed and input from the mobile device can be sent back to the telematics device.

FIG. 1

    Figure 1 shows examples of mobile devices 10 which are connected to a telematic box 11 in a vehicle for displaying information processed in the telematic box. Application specific software is loaded into mobile devices 10 from a backend
12. This system may comprise components such as:

    A telematics device based on IBM Power PC* TCET architecture, installed in the car. PDA with bluetooth connection to the telematics device.

Software: IBM* developed JAVA** applications on telematics device and on PDA. Both using J9 VM* + OSGi framework.

Examples of applications (Figure 2):

A. Speeding Control:

The navigation maps on the telematics device contain information about speed limits. The application on the telematics device compares driven speed to speed limits. Speeding events are reported to a backend system. Information about actual sp...
