Regarding your suggestion: If manufacturers share some level of standard, it can certainly be supported by a library or even more ready component. I am no telematics expert myself, but I'll speak to our telematics guys. Can you disclose what devices you are looking at? We currently work with Castel, Indagon, Elm Electronics, Aplicom and Continental.
Btw. what you suggest is quite similar in many vertical, so we came up with the concept of "vertical essentials". These would be offering basic APIs for device integration and applications in a particular industry domain. Telematics is one of them, but it is currently in the making.
