Continue reading below to learn more about the major differences between Squarell FMS and FMS-Standard used by the vehicle manufacturers.
|Squarell’s advanced vehicle data interfaces are compliant with the FMS-Standard, using non-intrusive technology to collect data.||The FMS-Standard must be activated by the manufacturer. Additional costs may be charged.|
|Squarell FMS has significantly more functionality: the wide range of parameters exceeds the FMS-Standard parameters.||FMS-Standard parameters only.|
|It is possible to provide tailor-made data solutions, as requested by your customer or partner.||Tailored vehicle parameters are not available.|
|Obtain data in universal standards including SAE J1939, FMS-Standard CAN or RS-232 messages.||Outputs FMS-Standard CAN messages only.|
|Vehicle signals are extracted directly from the CAN bus, ensuring pure and reliable vehicle data.||Vehicle data has to pass through the FMS gateway first.|
|Because the data remains in your own fleet management solution, data protection is guaranteed.||If you are using Remote FMS (rFMS), you will need to transfer your data through a third party cloud server.|
|Compatible with all major vehicle brands: trucks, buses, vans, cars (basically all vehicles equipped with CAN bus).||Only support for trucks and buses equipped with FMS-Standard.|
|Vehicle data is comparable between all types of brands and models in a fleet.||Comparing data from different vehicles requires data conversions.|
|Retrofit vehicles with FMS-Standard, including all of Squarell’s benefits.||Not possible.|
