On the strength of the experience acquired in the area of automotive electronics, as well as of the network of relationships and partnerships created within the ecosystem of players operating on the market of telematic solutions (carmakers, services providers, suppliers of telematic devices, insurance companies, fleet operators, etc.), Magneti Marelli develops and produces telematic boxes that allow access to services for efficient mobility management. Magneti Marelli’s “telematic box” or TBOX combines the interoperability and flexibility of the consumer world with the high quality, efficiency and technology of the automotive world. The telematic box is an electronic control unit that integrates a telephone module for connection to cellular communication networks, and a multi-constellation satellite localization module (GPS, Galileo, Glonass).
The TBOX can be installed on all vehicle types, with direct power supply from the vehicle itself. An internal rechargeable battery allows the device to be used even with no external power supply. The product is configurable and allows connections to external devices such as speakers and microphone, multiple pushbuttons, intelligent display, Smart Card reader and EOBD modules. The TBOX makes it possible to access specific services (including insurance and fleet management services) supplied by Service Providers, and services associated with efficient mobility management, such as car-pooling and car-sharing.
