Many environment and task specific methods and systems for building Service Robots exist. However vast strides in the evolution of Smart Device Technologies and Telematics create the need for a Telematic Framework that is generic, scalable, modular and dynamic. This Framework though generic in nature can be applied quite successfully to specific problems like Robot Navigation and Sensor Fusion as discussed here. The fundamental design aspects and implementation issues encountered during the development are discussed. Experiments were conducted and the results of the deployment of three major peripheral modules of the Telematics Framework namely the GSM/GPRS based Communication Module, GIS based Decision Support Module and Smart Client Integration Modules ( for GPS sensor) are reported in this paper.
