More Information
  • MDT platforms are implemented with rich connectivity and display capability. Devices have GPS to get coordinates of the vehicle, both for displaying and updating the map and informing the connected server about the location.
  • MDTs with 3G/4G option allow the riders to use built-in WiFi hotspot facility. While one of the main purposes of the device is metering, it can also give location-based information to riders.
Key Features:
  1. Data Communication: MDTs are equipped with wireless communication capabilities, such as cellular networks, Wi-Fi, and sometimes satellite connections. This allows for seamless data exchange with central servers and databases, even in remote areas.
  2. Information Display: MDTs typically have a screen and user-friendly interface for displaying information, maps, messages, and other data relevant to the user's task. Some MDTs offer touchscreens for easy interaction.
  3. GPS Integration: Many MDTs include GPS functionality, enabling real-time location tracking, route optimization, and geospatial data collection. This is invaluable for navigation and logistics.
  4. Data Entry: Some MDTs support data entry through physical or on-screen keyboards. This allows field personnel to input information or updates directly into the system.
  5. Rugged Design: MDTs are often designed to withstand harsh environments. They are built to be durable, resistant to dust, water, and shock, making them suitable for use in vehicles and outdoor settings.
  1. Public Safety: Police, fire, and emergency medical services use MDTs in patrol cars and emergency response vehicles to access databases, receive dispatch instructions, and view maps for navigation.
  2. Transportation and Logistics: In the transportation industry, MDTs are used in vehicles for route planning, package tracking, and communication between drivers and dispatchers. This ensures efficient deliveries and transportation management.
  3. Field Services: Technicians and field service personnel use MDTs to access work orders, update service records, and communicate with their teams while on-site, improving service efficiency.
  4. Public Transportation: In buses and trams, MDTs help drivers monitor schedules, receive route updates, and maintain communication with central control centers.
  5. Agriculture: In precision agriculture, MDTs assist in monitoring equipment, collecting data on crop conditions, and guiding farming machinery using GPS.
MDT can be easily interfaced with the OBD interface of the vehicle to monitor various parameters.
