Default Reliance Jio to foray into automobile telematics this year

Reliance Jio to foray into automobile telematics this year

http://www.thehindu.com/business/Ind...le17054514.ece

Billionaire Mukesh Ambani’s telecom venture Reliance Jio Infocomm is planning to foray into automobile telematics with the launch of a device that will control vehicle’s movement and alert owner about fuel and battery through a mobile app.

“Reliance Jio is ready with a car connected device that will have multiple features like immobilise car at the time of theft, alert owner about car movement, locate car and also provide wi-fi within car. The owner needs to use Jio sim in the device to avail benefits,” an industry source said.

The company is in advance talks with automobile companies to launch it very soon.

“There are lots of factors that determine price, but price of the car connected device is estimated to be either equal to or less than its Jio’s mifi device which costs around Rs 2,000,” the source said.

With help of Jio’s car management device, the owner will get information about the way his driver is driving the car, the movement of vehicle can be restricted within a geography, switch on AC of car from any remote location, get alert of car break etc.

“Jio is working on the modalities on its sales model for the existing cars as well,” the source said.

The device and application has been internally developed by Jio but the hardware device will be initially imported from China.

“Jio has asked its device vendor to start making it in India after initial roll—out,” the source said.

Besides this, the company is also scaling up its fibre to the home project for which it is running pilot in some cities including Delhi and Mumbai.

“With Fibre to the home, Jio will focus on automatic entire home from entertainment to home surveillance to utility management,” the source said.

Jio has touched a customer base 7.24 crore and claims to be adding 1 lakh mobile subscribers per day.

If it really works as well as they claim, then this product is surely gonna be a hit in our market.

Kudos to Jio for entering this market. It would be very useful for us car owners, because this would standardise the process and make it simpler for everybody to track their vehicle data and share it among fellow vehicle owners. This would bring a lot of clarity about their vehicles and how it is performing without visiting service centers.

If you are a Jio user, you would know how great their entire service is. Jio apps are so well developed and designed from launch, data speeds have been very good (particularly after New Year), calls are almost immediate, 4G is available in the remote of places where other operators fail to provide even 2g services, using Adhar to verify credentials when getting a new SIM instead of submitting documents, photos, etc. They really seem to have hit the other operators hard, who for all these days have looted the customer and now are facing the heat.

Judging by the above, I expect this service to be excellent as well from the word go. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

P.S. Not a biased message in favour of Jio. This simply came out of me after all the experiences I have had with telecom operators over the years.

I guess many of the features will depend on your car. for eg. not all cars allow control of AC via OBD (CAN).
