Telematics IVUs are now widely used across all land-transport modes for a range of purposes, 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.

In response to calls from stakeholders, TCA developed a Functional and Technical Specification for Telematics In-Vehicle Units (IVUs), to support the expanding use of telematics by land-based transport (for both light and heavy vehicles) and through its development, TCA is promoting a more informed and knowledgeable marketplace.

The Specification sets out the core requirements necessary to ensure reliability, accuracy, integrity and security, to fulfil the needs for Type-approval – irrespective of transport mode, or its end use.

Further information about using the Specification can be found here.
