Can Bus in the fleet management using GPS

The ability to connect the data network Can Bus a vehicle with a GPS device opens a number of advantages thanks to the large flow of information it generates connectivity. 

The data to be collected by GPS tracking systems can be sent and processed in order to have real-time reporting of critical data such as fuel levels, instantaneous speed, RPM, remaining distance to your next maintenance and many other values ​​of the vehicle. 

The combination of this information in our multi-location platform mark allows easily understand and compare these values ​​in a fleet of vehicles and to generate reports by type of driving, Co2 emission or consumption and thus achieve a return on investment much more accelerated.

What data can be obtained through the Can Bus?

The amount of data depend primarily on (i) the standard of Can Bus offered by the vehicle itself and (ii) which such data are available. 

In generic terms, these data are:
