Hughes Telematics has implemented the world's first technology-neutral telematics framework that allows virtually any supplier's technology to be integrated into the system.

This Next Generation Telematics Architecture establishes an open telematics platform structure for interconnectivity between multiple content providers, call centers, and in-vehicle hardware platforms.

The platform allows vehicle OEMs to custom-tailor content and features while maintaining maximum flexibility in hardware selection and the addition of future services. This includes improving the driver experience by allowing for new content, Internet applications, and service updates to be downloaded remotely.

The Next Generation Telematics Architecture system also supports various vehicle interfaces and data formats, so it can be configured to any vehicle.

“These developments liberate the supply chain and ensure the ability to offer new services without reconfiguring the vehicle,” the company said.
