CANGO new approach presented in Dubai Conference
The subject of the 5th edition of the Telematics Conference that took place in Dubai at the end of March 2019 referred to Advanced Telematics in Fleet Management.
CANGO had a presentation slot in which developed the idea related to advanced telematics solution. As an important player in the industry and the recipient of the Frost and Sullivan Award in CANbus solution, CANGO involved the participants at the conference in order to define together some characteristics of what an Advanced Telematics solution is or should be.
Collaboration, Innovation, capacity of adding new features and functionalities, openness level, easy to implement solution were just few of the main ideas developed during the conference.
“We took this opportunity and announced one of our new products, or better said, we announced the shift that our company is making in this moment. All the functionalities that we offered until now inside our hardware are ready to be offered as applications on third party open platform telematics units. In this way we want and we are able to license our knowledge in any telematics devices and it is not only CANbus libraries but also we build applications like Driver Performance Assistance, MIL&DTC codes, Tacho, FMS2IP, car sharing or any other application that a partner can imagine”. (Bianca Barbu, CMO)
Related to the idea presented and the shift of the company into applications area and CANbus services, CANGO announced also the partnership with one of the biggest players on the market, TomTom. The company choose to partnership with CANGO for the CAnbus services and application based on them for TomTom Bridge Hub.
CANbus Services for Android is a Cango component that runs in the background of a third party telematics device without any user interaction or interface, except the one for configuring it. Service runs with a higher priority than inactive or invisible activities and therefore it is less likely that the Android system terminates them for resource management.

Leveraging the Power of Telematics. Education and Collaboration in the industry
On September 27, in Warsaw, Poland took place the eighth edition of the Telematics Conference for Central and Eastern Europe.
The main topic of the conference was “Telematics Industry Collaborations” and CANGO participated actively by being part of the panel in which were discussed the trends and ideas about leveraging the power of telematics.
One important stage in telematics industry is education. In most of the case, due to economic situation, people started looking for cheap solution losing their focus from quality. In most of the cases, the experience proves that a cheap solution will be in the end more expensive, even if we talk about telematics, electronic consumer goods or other products. That is why education is very important so companies will look for value added.
Telematics industry plays a crucial role when it comes to smart cities, for example. Without the information related to vehicles and drivers, the smart city strategy cannot be developed properly. If in the past years we were talking about connected vehicles and then IoT, nowadays the concepts are even more developed and it is very important how this information are correlated with the environment. In addition, AI is another aspect that should be taken into consideration so the whole ecosystem is part of this process that is continuously evolving.
CANGO also was present with a booth where the attendees had the chance to see the latest development of the company and discuss the future project opportunities and possible partnership. Two new products were presented including the future telematics platform as a service that the company will launch it soon.
“We know that the big data make the world go round and we want to value these information is algorithms which will bring value and results to any user in the market. Our goal is build a new platform and open it for our partners. In this way we will help the customers educate and choose exactly what they will need from the same place without switching from a platform to another and in the same time we will help the telematics supplier providers to increase their revenues.”
