General fitment levels of security features have increased on passenger cars across the world, including mandatory immobilisers and insurance incentives, which has led to a general downward trend in vehicle theft. However, our latest research suggests that thieves targeting newer vehicles overcome these security systems by first stealing an original key.
Devices like remote immobilisers, often linked with Stolen Vehicle Tracking systems, boost the chance of vehicle recovery even if the thief has the key and are a popular product with customers.
This report explores the market drivers for remote immobilisation and the technical issues globally with particular reference to OE development, European insurance criteria, new legislation in Brazil and the liability issues surrounding the use of this technology.
This report will enable you to:
• Decide the future market position for remote immobilisation within a stolen vehicle tracking or telematics strategy
• Overcome known drawbacks and understand liability issues
• Compare different approaches to remote immobilisers regarding the method of activation and how many systems are activated
• Understand how to meet insurance and security requirements for remote immobilisation

General fitment levels of security features have increased on passenger cars across the world, including mandatory immobilisers and insurance incentives, which has led to a general downward trend in vehicle theft. However, our latest research suggests that thieves targeting newer vehicles overcome these security systems by first stealing an original key. Devices like remote immobilisers, often linked with Stolen Vehicle Tracking systems, boost the chance of vehicle recovery even if the thief has the key and are a popular product with customers. This report explores the market drivers for remote immobilisation and the technical issues globally with particular reference to OE development, European insurance criteria, new legislation in Brazil and the liability issues surrounding the use of this technology. This report will help you: Decide the future market position for remote immobilisation within a stolen vehicle tracking or telematics strategy Overcome known drawbacks and understand liability issues Compare different approaches to remote immobilisers regarding the method of activation and how many systems are activated. Understand how to meet insurance and security requirements for remote immobilisation For additional information please email jappleby@sbd.co.uk or telephone Juanita on +44 (0) 1908 305101 and she will be happy to deal with your enquiry.
  • Remote immobiliser fitment to increase...Remote immobilisers are an example of after-theft security and are usually afunction of a Stolen Vehicle Tracking (SVT) system, although some aftermarketalarm systems also have this capability. The purpose of a remote immobiliser is todeny the thief continuous use of a vehicle even if they have access to the originalkey.There are currently seven European countries that have insurance approvalcriteria for SVT all of which either allow for or require that the system includesremote immobiliser functionality. Brazil is currently the only region that has anylegislation mandating SVT where all passenger vehicles must be fitted with SVThardware which includes remote immobilisation capability from April 2011. Example of insurance conditions on SVT fitment* Vehicle Vehicle valuetheft risk < €30k > €30k < €50k > €50k No additional security No additional security Fitment of SVT capable Low requested requested of remote restart Some insurers may Fitment of SVT capable No additional security request fitment of SVT or Medium of remote restart requested other aftermarket security prevention system Some insurers may Fitment of SVT capable request fitment of SVT or High Fitment of SVT of remote restart other aftermarket security prevention system*This table is a general summary of the views of leading insurers across Europeanmarkets - the policies of individual insurers may varyOverall, there is an increasing market for SVT systems with an average fitmentrate of 5% of passenger vehicles in most developed regions. Remote immobiliserfitment takes up a varying proportion of that fitment rate, depending on localfactors such as market acceptance and insurance criteria. SBD believe that thenumber of SVT systems with remote immobiliser functions is likely to increaseover the next few years, especially as a result of a shift from aftermarket fitment toOE specification for SVT as a telematics function on new vehicles.In Europe, SBD predict that by 2012 almost half of SVT systems will be OE fit andthe majority of OE systems will have remote immobilisation capability. The recentlegislation in Brazil will see 100% of new vehicles in that market and a generaltrends towards increasing telematics functions will see an increase in remoteimmobilisers globally. However, SBD feel that the activation level of SVT will belower than the fitment level and there may be a reluctance on the part of serviceoperators to use the remote immobilisation function because of liability issues andalso because in many circumstances it is necessary to have the police within line-of-sight.

It includes an analysis of the impact of readily-available information on the internet, changes in legislation and the effect of the world recession to provide a comprehensive picture of vehicle crime and what the future holds. Reference SBD/SEC/2196 The changing outlook for stolen vehicle tracking in Europe This report covers the threats and opportunities for both aftermarket and OE systems as the European landscape changes as a result of other telematics services being introduced in the coming years. It also includes an overview of the latest technical requirements across Europe and includes an analysis of the future trends and the growing influence of Thatcham. Reference SBD/SEC/2195 Strategic advice for Stolen Vehicle Tracking in the UK The purpose of this report is to clarify the different categories for insurance approval of tracking systems and to summarise which are the most appropriate for manufacturers to target based on a survey of current insurers’ policies. It explains the different insurance criteria, written by Thatcham, to which stolen vehicle tracking systems can be approved. Reference SBD/SEC/2198 The impact of mandatory anti-theft systems in Brazil The Brazilian government initially called for tracking systems and immobilisers to be introduced on all new vehicles from 2009. A six-month trial period started in August 2009 and the mandatory fitment of tracking systems was expected to commence in February 2010. However, a new legal challenge has been made which may further delay the implementation timing or change the requirements. In response to the recent developments, SBD has produced an updated report which details the technical requirements for OE tracking systems, the approval processes and the future outlook for the stolen vehicle tracking market and the opportunities this provides for the fitment of added value telematics services.
