How telematics data helps you in accident reconstruction?

 
Unfortunately car accidents are very common in Kingdom although most of the car crashes are because of human error. There are many ways to avoid an accident but once it happens, the question arises what to do next?
Since car accidents litigations are governed by the state laws and for investigation and proving yourself innocent one needs to provide proper witnesses and proofs to prove. It is very important to know how it happened, why it happened and what the causes were. Rebuilding as much information as possible is vital to take the necessary action. With accident reconstruction data one can decide easily weather to fight a lawsuit or settle down quickly.

What is accident reconstruction?


It is the process which defines the event happened before, during and after the collision by using telematics data. Telematics data helps you in understanding the accident in a broader perspective. It provides you the scientific pattern of events with the access to the previous history of the specific vehicle or driver.
This tool can proved to be of significant importance for fleet managers and administrators in analyzing the causes of accidents, how it happened and who was guilty.
In accident reconstruction report Eagle-I offers you two types of information
1. Information about what happened
2. Information about the driver
This report is divided into three categories i.e. journey report, violation report and driver scorecard. The journey report gives you the detailed information about that specific information. The track he choose, the time of accident, location of accident along with the distance travelled before accident and the utilization of asset. Here utilization of asset is of paramount importance as it can help in identifying the fatigue of driver. How long did he travelled without taking break before an accident? Eagle-I also provides you the last stop where he rested with his duration of stay.
The violation report shows the summary of all the violations happened in that specific journey. Whereas driver scorecard gives you the comprehensive information about driver’s behavior with accelerometer data (harsh braking, harsh acceleration, harsh corning), RPM data and speed profile during the accident.
The above mentioned all information will not only be beneficial in analyzing the situation of accident but it can also be used to prevent accidents in future by observing the pattern. Moreover, this information can also help you in claiming your insurance.

Why do banks need an effective ATM Tracking and Monitoring Solution?

Why do banks need an effective ATM Tracking and Monitoring Solution?

Automated Teller Machines widely known as ATMs had become an integral part of Montreal transactions. Despite the global shift to mobile and internet banking and forecasts of a cashless society, ATMs are still regarded as a necessary service. The convenience of an ATM allows user to undertake rapid self-service operations such as cash deposit and withdrawal, bill payment, and account transfers.

But the question arises why do banks need an effective ATM Tracking and Monitoring Solution? We have seen multiple cases where the ATM machines are either dislocated or are smashed and grabbed. which not only results in the loss of cash within the unit with heavy damage or even complete loss of the expensive machine.

In order to reduce the frequency and severity of ATM crimes, new legislation issued by the Central Bank of Saudi Arabia now requires all banks operating within the Kingdom to install GPS tracking devices across all remotely located and/or outdoor ATM machines. It is essential to implement effective monitoring and management solutions for predictive and proactive approach to prevent these problems in the future.

Eagle-IoT has specially designed its ATM Tracking and Monitoring Solution to offer real time 24/7 insights with its sensors to use in ATM units, with long battery backup, call facility and of water proof casing in order to maximize the performance.

What is multifactor authentication and how does it work?

What is multifactor authentication and how does it work?

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) – also referred to as Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is a layered approach to secure data and applications, by extending a combination of two or more credentials to verify a user’s identity for login in order to prevent it from being compromised.

How does multifactor authentication work?

MFA is a fundamental element of a successful identity and access management (IAM) policy. MFA reduces the risk of a successful cyber-attack by requiring one or more extra verification criteria, rather than just a login and password. In case of one credential compromise, unauthorized users are unable to manage the second authentication criterion and hence cannot access your computing device, network, or database.

Multifactor authentication involves combination of different kind of factors to authenticate your identity, when you try to sign in first time into an app or device. It can be done by

Inherence based MFA

  • Fingerprint, or facial recognition or voice

Possession based MFA

  • OTPs generated by smartphone apps
  • OTPs sent via text or email

Knowledge based MFA

  • Answers to personal security questions
  • Password
  • Memorized PIN.

However, the second step authentication will not be required quite often.

Multifactor authentication is not as cumbersome as some people think; it is often used just the first time you enter into an app or device, or the first time you sign in after resetting your password. Once done you can use your primary factor to sign in, (which is often a password), like you do normally.The added security comes from the fact that anyone attempting to hack into your account is unlikely to be using your device, so they’ll need that second factor to gain access.

Eagle-IoT supports Two-Factor Authentication for your account security, and Telematics services to enhance the stability and security of our partner organizations.

GNSS spoofing attack possess the threat to safety and security of Tesla Model 3 and Model S.

GNSS spoofing attack possess the threat to safety and security of Tesla Model 3 and Model S.

Regulus Cyber recently revealed in their research that Tesla Model S and Model 3 electric cars which are known for their speed and safety are prone to cyberattacks aimed at their navigation systems.
Regulus Cyber is the first company dealing with smart-sensor security across a wide range of applications including automotive, mobile, and critical infrastructure. The vulnerability of Tesla was revealed during a test drive using Tesla’s Navigate on Autopilot feature when a staged attack not only caused the car to slow down but the car also veered off the main road. Moreover, the concerned cyber firm also discovered the spoofing attacks on the Tesla GNSS receiver can easily be carried out wirelessly and remotely, exploiting security vulnerabilities in mission-critical telematics, sensor fusion, and navigation capabilities.
The Navigate on Autopilot feature was initially intended for making the route to a destination easier by suggesting and making lane changes and taking interchange exits under the driver supervision. According to Tesla, both the models initially requires the drivers to confirm the lane changes using the turn signals before the car moved into an adjacent lane, however, the current versions of Navigate on Autopilot allow drivers to waive the confirmation requirement if they choose, which means the car can activate the turn signal and start turning on its own. Tesla emphasized that “in both of these scenarios until truly driverless cars are validated and approved by regulators, drivers are responsible for and must remain ready to take manual control of their car at all times.”
However, the attack staged by Regulus Cyber to reveal the reaction of Model S and Model 3 began by testing the car driving normally and activating the autopilot navigation feature, maintaining a constant speed and position in the middle of the lane. When the spoofing attack happened, the car was three miles away from the planned exit.
The car suddenly slowed down from 500 meters away from the exit and activated the right turn signal and made the sharp turn off the main road. The driver instantly took the charge yet he was not able to stop the car from leaving the road.
