Government bodies from federal to municipal find better ways to serve the public through M2M technology

Charity Pihlaja, M2M Magazine

One issue it seems all government bodies deal with is vehicle maintenance. Whether it’s a fleet of squad cars, an all-important fire truck, or durable tanks and Humvees, each agency has means of transportation.

M2M also offers mobile asset monitoring. Included in this is GPS (global positioning system) to help agencies track where their vehicles are, how long they spend at one location, and can be used to help drivers find better routes to destinations.

It is not unusual for governments to be an early adopter of technology.
