On-board computers are the central information systems and computing systems in motor vehicles, aircraft or on ships. They receive their information from the many sensors and via radio technologies, store and process all relevant data for the route, driving and standing times, fuel consumption, etc. and present some of these directly on the connected displays.

The data processed by on-board computers include average fuel consumption and consumption averages, speed and distance travelled, time and predicted arrival time, and much more.
