Telematics Plug | TEP
Smart sensor device designed for crash detection and analyzing driving behavior
For the fastest first help
Keep your customers’ effort to a minimum with the Telematics Plug from Bosch. This smart sensor device is designed for crash detection and the analysis of driving behavior. The user-friendly advantage is that the plug fits into a convential 12V outlet of a passenger car. Benefit from Bosch’s best-in-class technology which is derived from our knowledge in airbag development in a small frame. You can choose between the following options: accident detection functionality & driving behavior determination; accident detection functionality only; driving behavior determination only.
Accident detection functionality:
Increase a driver’s safety and help accelerate first aid with the functionality of the retrofittable accident detection. With its hyper-accurate integrated acceleration sensor and built-in microcontroller, the Bosch accident detection system detects the severity of a collision. The advantage? Quick and professional help, whenever it’s needed.
Driving behavior analysis:
Offer your customers’ a greater insight into their own driving behavior and, if necessary, the chance to act upon it. The Telematics Plug transmits acceleration, braking and cornering event data to the driver’s smartphone via Bluetooth® and serves as informational help to improve driving performance. Additionally, it helps utilize more personalized services.

Make use of these benefits
Improved Customer Relationship
Take the chance to improve your customer journey and customer retention by making use of personalized offerings to provide better and holistic services.
With its fit into the well-known 12V outlet, your customers can easily apply the Telematics Plug. Compared to On-board diagnostics (OBD) and black boxes, the TEP installation is much easier.
Scalable and affordable for mass consumption
The device is suitable for mass consumption due to the low investment for the device. In addition, the software development kit is available for an easy integration into an existing Smartphone App.
Features that make the difference
The Telematics Plug detects relevant information on crashes and their severity level. Additionally, it tracks scoring events such as acceleration, braking, cornering, starting and stopping.
High IT security
The accident detection does not connect to the IT infrastructure of a car. Therefore the given security level of the vehicle remains unaffected.
Excellent data accuracy
Compared to "app-only" solutions, the telematics plug provides much more accurate data. Our motto is "the more precise the data, the more targeted the accident assistance, the lower the number of false alarms".
