Revolutionize Your Fleet Management with Positioning Universal’s Cutting-Edge Mobile IoT Solutions: Harnessing the Power of the CAN Bus Network

Positioning Universal’s cutting-edge Mobile IoT solutions redefine the way you connect, monitor, and harness the power of your vehicles’ built-in technologies such as its CAN Bus network.


The CAN Bus (Controller Area Network Bus), a standard vehicle component, enables seamless communication between various electronic control units (ECUs). Today’s vehicles are equipped with an array of features, sensors, and systems that work together to provide an enhanced driving experience.

The CAN Bus acts as the nervous system of a vehicle allowing ECUs to transmit and receive information. It offers a centralized pathway for communication, eliminating the need for each feature to be individually connected. The CAN Bus simplifies wiring, reduces costs, and enhances efficiency.

The CAN Bus also enables compatibility with external devices like telematics systems. For example, our FT7500 connects to the vehicle’s CAN Bus. The FT7500 syncs to the vehicle through a simple, seamless installation and then accesses the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to read custom parameters from each vehicle.

The CAN Bus, by providing a centralized and efficient method for devices to interact, enhances fleet management, improves safety, and optimizes the integration of external devices for monitoring and customization. Positioning Universal is a GPS pioneer with members of its management team having launched several of the leading companies in the market. We stay at the forefront of emerging technologies and have deep domain knowledge of fleet technology including CAN Bus, Dash Cameras, and GPS device architecture.
