ERM Advanced Telematics, Altair Semiconductor Team Up on Automotive IoT Asset-Tracking Tech

Altair Semiconductor, a provider of cellular Internet of Things (IoT) chipsets, has announced that it is partnering with ERM Advanced Telematics, a supplier of automotive technology and IoT solutions, to develop low-powered and installation-free automotive IoT systems.

ERM's IoT and asset-management solutions leverage Altair's cellular IoT chipsets to provide solutions for IoT, asset-management, stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) and vehicle financial services. These include event-based platforms for automatic vehicle location and asset-management applications using sensors. The ultra-low power consumption of Altair's chipsets allows the device to be connected without having to be powered by a vehicle's battery.

"As installation costs continue to rise in comparison to hardware prices, Altair's unparalleled low power figures and extended battery life means we can provide on-board solutions with minimal installation requirements that are able to remain in the field for up to two years," said Kfir Lavi, ERM Advanced Telematics' senior VP and deputy CEO, in a prepared statement. "This will usher in a new dawn for IoT and asset management, opening up a whole new market of applications for a wide range of automotive IoT scenarios."

"Low power consumption is essential for the efficient and long-term growth of the automotive IoT space," said Gili Friedman, Altair Semiconductor's director of business management, in the prepared statement. "We are delighted that ERM Telematics has selected Altair's cellular IoT technology to provide the low cost and power-efficient connectivity necessary to enable new markets and use cases."
