Technological advances help us improve our quality of life style and make our daily easier. Being constantly connected has become essential for people.
That is why Facomsa is committed to intercommunicated mobility, which we understand as connecting the vehicle, with the user and with the environment, facilitating driving to the user. In today’s post we discuss 3 of the latest technologies developed by Facomsa’s technical team and that Peugeot y Zero Motocycles have already implemented on their motorcycles.
Facomsa offers a standard connectivity box with CAN communication and a Bluetooth Low Energy module v4.2, so the CAN acts as BLE gateway to forward data to the instrument cluster. Other applied fields are wireless diagnostic functions, keyless entry-system, motorbike sharing and connection of other sensors through BLE.
Other optional modules can be embedded such as a Bluetooth dual mode (Classic and BLE), Wi-Fi, GPS, cellular (2G / LTE Cat M1) and narrowband ( Cat NB1).
Facomsa can develop custom iOS and Android applications with Bluetooth Low Energy capabilities to always stay connected with the motorbike.
A map can be integrated to the applications, so the riders can discover new places. The turn-by-turn navigation data is transmitted over BLE to the motorbike and can be displayed in the instrument cluster.
Riders can also receive smartphone notifications and customize the cluster by modifying the color, the language, etc.
Applications are able to display real-time telemetry data received from the motorbikes such as trip distance, odometer, fuel level, etc.
In case you already have a smartphone application, we also offer iOS and Android SDKs to transmit data over BLE protocol and receive smartphone notifications compatible with our instrument clusters.
Facomsa offers a platform which is equipped with a connectivity module that integrates both Wi-Fi and dual-mode Bluetooth (Classic and BLE), allowing a wide range of connectivity possibilities.
Along with our mobile applications, the user will have the possibility to display their smartphone screen on the instrument cluster of their motorbike, offering the option to have their navigation maps at a glance.
In addition, users can receive smartphone notifications, personalise their instrument -modify the color, language, etc- and receive telemetry data of the motorbike, such as trip distance, fuel level, odometer, etc.
