telematics

Telematics is a neologism of telecommunications and computer science, representing the integration of applications and technologies from these fields.

  1. In telecommunications, telematics services are a collective term for telecommunications services supported by computers. Telematics services extend functionally across all layers of the OSI reference model; in contrast to transmission services, which are limited to the transport-relevant communication functions. The great depth of standardization ensures comprehensive compatibility - including terminal functions - in message exchange. Typical telematics services are fax and Datex-J.

  2. However, telematics is also used in other technical disciplines, such as traffic and automotive engineering, where high-performance information and telecommunications systems improve automobile and traffic safety.
