Nebula Systems confirm telematic chipset, NC1701, first commercial firmware release
Latest firmware update to their "NC1701 Enhanced Vehicle Communications Controller" takes it out of Beta test phase and into commercial use
The NC1701 is a dedicated vehicle communications chip solution capable of extracting OEM data from any vehicle. It can be embedded into any telematics device and has been designed from the ground up with a focus on telematics applications and removing the headache of understanding vehicle CAN systems, from hardware partners.
Roman Di Lullo, CEO of Nebula Systems said "We identified that the complexities of OEM communication protocols were holding back many companies in the telematics space from exploiting the wealth of data available in modern cars. NC1701 enables easy access to this data which we expect will lead to some exciting new applications"
The NC1701 chip is already being embedded into next-generation telematics devices by Nebula's hardware partners like META Systems and Teltonika. The latest October 2018 1.0 firmware release brings NC1701 out of Beta testing and into a fully operational state.
With standard features such as "Automatic VIN reading", "Advanced low power and wake up modes", "Smart ignition detection for electric and hybrid vehicles", the NC1701 has the potential to transform a telematic device's data access capabilities.
The NC1701's core data capability allows simple access to thousands of OEM data points such as:
So many telematic devices claim to have "diagnostics"
The NC1701 can be applied across a wide range of Connected Car industries that are interested in expanding their data access abilities:
Rental, UBI, Fleet, Roadside Recovery, Car Sharing, Fuel Rewards, Market Research, In Car display, Car Driver Apps and many others.
