Auto components India - - NEWS - ACI

Pri­col Limited, a lead­ing man­u­fac­turer of au­to­mo­tive com­po­nents, and solutions provider for the global au­to­mo­tive mar­ket, has re­ceived the Au­to­mo­tive Re­search As­so­ci­a­tion of In­dia (ARAI) cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for telem­at­ics de­vices. The ARAI cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for the telem­at­ics de­vices comes un­der AIS 140 reg­u­la­tion which is in line with the Min­istry of Road Trans­port and High­way (MoRTH). The reg­u­la­tion is aimed at in­tro­duc­ing in­tel­li­gent trans­port sys­tem in In­dia, re­quired for mak­ing roads safer.

This cer­ti­fi­ca­tion com­ple­ments Pri­col’s in­her­ent ad­van­tage of man­u­fac­tur­ing the de­vices in its own fa­cil­i­ties in In­dia. Apart from be­ing de­signed to meet the new safety reg­u­la­tion manda­tory from April 1, 2018, the de­vice of­fers ad­di­tional fea­tures which OEMs can in­te­grate across buses, trucks and pas­sen­ger ve­hi­cles and ac­ces­sories like RFID read­ers, Fuel level sen­sors, etc. The ad­di­tional IP ad­dress­ing makes ve­hi­cle data avail­able to OEMs for their own ap­pli­ca­tions.

Vikram Mo­han, MD, Pri­col Limited said, “With the new ARAI cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, we at Pri­col be­lieve that our AIS140 telem­at­ics sys­tem will do much to en­able In­dia’s safety mis­sion of en­cour­ag­ing safer pub­lic trans­port sys­tems. Pri­col is working with sev­eral OEMs to fit, in­te­grate and test the cer­ti­fied telem­at­ics de­vice in var­i­ous ve­hi­cles. This will equip the OEMs to be mar­ket-ready when the reg­u­la­tion comes into ef­fect by April 1, 2018.”

Pri­col is one of the lead­ing telem­at­ics de­vice man­u­fac­tur­ers in In­dia with an in­stalled base of about 100,000 ve­hi­cles. Pri­col’s telem­at­ics de­vices find pres­ence in sec­tors such as Au­to­mo­tive OEMs (Off High Way Ve­hi­cles, Trucks, and Trac­tors etc), Am­bu­lances, In­dus­trial, Lo­gis­tics etc.
