Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication involves machines communicating with other devices.
The sensors in the devices collect information which is then send as telemetry to the machine or uploaded remotely to the internet for the user to analyze. The data collected by the devices can also trigger pre-programmed automated processes in the machine. Technology advancement has made it possible to integrate smart software in the internal computer processors of machines. There are parameters set which the software operates. Communicating from one machine to another is made through their language called telemetry which is basically data from sensors and machines send remotely and wirelessly to central point for analysis.
M2M technology is being applied to almost all industries. M2M communication has revolutionized the taxi industry with many firms in the taxi business harnessing its efficiency. You are able to track where you taxi is from the location information send to you. This information helps you know how far one of your taxis is from customers and also its availability. It helps you in controlling all your fleet from a central location remotely. The M2M sim cards in the taxi has enough data to continuously upload telemetry from the sensors to your computer. In most cases you find that there is a multi-network system to enable the system to stay online without getting signal black spots. This is necessary to get an extensive network infrastructure usually from more than one provider such that if the location the taxi is there is no coverage by one provider, the other providers will keep the system online.
There are several benefits of M2M which you can enjoy as taxi owner. One is that your fleet fuel usage will be minimized. The fuel bill in taxi business is normally too high and reduces profitability. Since you know all the location of your fleet, you only allocate job to the taxi which is closer to your client. The shorter routes the taxi takes will translate to lower fuel consumption.
M2M helps increase your revenues as the taxi can complete more jobs within the day. The shorter routes you allocate your fleet means they complete jobs in shorter time creating more time to work and ultimately increased revenue. On top of this, you will have happy clients because they will consider your service reliable. They don’t take long waiting for the taxi to arrive.
