Expand Your Telematics Solution with Third Party Device Integration

Third Party Device Integration With Existing GoFleet Solutions

We integrate with a large variety of different third party devices. Some of the most popular applications include the following:

  • Garmin device integration to deliver notifications to your drivers.
  • Iridium Satellite to enable connectivity when traveling out of cell coverage.
  • Hours of Service to log how long your drivers have been on the road to help keep them safe.

The IOX platform was developed as a modular solution to the integration problem. The platform allows for flexible product support while keeping individual costs down. The Third Party Protocol was designed to easily allow the integration of external devices. By utilizing the IOX platform & Third Party Protocol, starting the integration process is simple.

Step 1: Request an External Device ID
Our software needs to know who it’s talking to. Contact GoFleet to obtain an External Device ID unique for your product. We will save a record when we see your device to indicate it was found.

Step 2: Request Status Data IDs
It is always beneficial to know what data you’re sending and its format. You can apply a different offset and conversion factor for each type of data. Request a distinct ID for each type of status data you want to send.

Step 3: Implement Third Party Protocol
It is important all devices involved speak the same language. The Third Party Protocol attempts to link with the device connected and expects messages to be structured in a certain way. A checksum is included to help ensure the integrity of the data during the process of transmission.

Step 4: Use the data
Once GoFleet has the data, what can be done with it? Take a look at the Software Development Kit (SDK). With this powerful tool you can create new applications, custom reports, or integrate the data into your own systems.

Could integrating your device with GoFleet add value to your products and expand the capabilities of your current solution(s)? Contact us to learn more.
