Micronet SmartHub

Micronet SmartHub Platform is a next-generation Telematics On-Board Computer.  Powered by Android open Operating System, and featuring a best-in-class set of technologies, Micronet SmartHub goes beyond traditional Telematics black-boxes to provide a powerful and flexible environment for application development and integration.


Advanced real-time applications:
With a powerful processor and extended memory, Micronet SmartHub supports advanced, resource-intensive applications. Such cost-saving, value-added applications are resource intensive: real-time fuel management, for example, demands in-vehicle analysis of the sensor and CAN data to coach drivers on fuel savings, utilizing Micronet SmartHub’s Audio features for real-time sound cues to the driver. It runs the advanced algorithms required for applications including video-based driver behavior analysis, driver fatigue recognition and ADAS.


Extended pool of services:
With the ability to run multiple applications simultaneously, Micronet SmartHub allows Telematics Service Providers to extend their offering beyond their own applications, providing their fleet customers with advanced third-party mobility applications.


In-Cab Hub:
With a rich set of wireless and wired vehicle and peripheral interfaces, Micronet SmartHub functions as an “in-cab hub” to which other in-vehicle devices, accessories and sensors can easily connect. Micronet SmartHub’s support for cellular communication, WiFi hotspot, Bluetooth audio, BT tethering and BLE, NFC, WiFi direct, multiple CAN channels (including open/customizable CAN libraries) and multiple I/O, give it a significant edge over traditional Telematics black-boxes.


Shorter Development Cycles:
With a huge ecosystem of Android development tools and software frameworks, and with a flourishing community of developers, Android-based platforms accelerate development and integration cycles.


Micronet SmartHub & Micronet SmartHub-U Product Models:
Micronet SmartHub Platform supports two physical product models to best fit in with the solution specific operational and installation requirements. The standard “Micronet SmartHub” product model supports on-dash or windshield mounting and provides integrated Voice capability, visible LED notifications, and user accessible Function Key. The “Micronet SmartHub-U” model allows a hidden under-dash or under-seat product mounting, provides enhanced device Ingress Protection level (IP65) and supports dedicated interfaces for external Speaker, Microphone and GPS Antenna connection. Both models are based on the identical Electronic, Software and Connectivity core.


Compatibility with Micronet SmarTab:
The Micronet SmarTab, Micronet’s next generation Android rugged tablet, is based on the same hardware and software platform as SmartHub. Telematics Service Providers who develop applications for Micronet SmartHub can easily adjust and run them also on Micronet SmarTab for fleet customers who need tablets as part of their solution.


Lower Total Cost of Ownership:
With a robust architecture and cost-effective design, Micronet SmartHub simplifies maintenance tasks and enables extended product life. Designed to operate in harsh commercial automotive environments, withstanding shocks and vibrations, functioning reliably in broad-ranging temperatures, and incorporating the Best-in-Class Enabling Technology Feature Set, Micronet SmartHub Platform lowers the Total Cost of Ownership.
