Bussynet Advanced Trading’s Telematics and Intelligence Mobility Conference is back for another year of deeper and intelligent look that goes beyond the obvious in latest available technologies for commercial vehicles and how they shape the transport industry in Africa.
Research and development into the connected car is gaining traction with each passing day, and with telematics in the middle of it all, this year’s conference will discuss how to progress in the other parts in the world of Internet of Things – 5G technology for instance – will help the connected car, and what this means for logistics organisations, trucking companies and supply chain industry players. To recap, telematics enables remote access to vehicle data over a wireless network and is used for the collection and dissemination of information between vehicle-based electronic systems, for vehicle tracking and positioning, on-line vehicle navigation, information systems and emergency assistance. The interest in ﬂeet managers and interest stakeholders in the commercial vehicle industry is in how they can leverage the latest 5th Generation internet technology to improve connectivity among their vehicles.
Besides connectivity, the issue of climate change and campaigns to reduce carbon emissions has dominated world headlines of late; the idea of green ﬂeets and zero emissions targets has been on the agenda in the transport industry, and the conference will look at how this will affect African companies, and their responsibilities in contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in as far as carbon emissions are concerned. It is also the reason why we will discuss smart city and smart mobility solutions; namely, how town and road planning technologies can be made to include the emerging technologies in telematics and transport technologies.
Besides, we will also address developments in the usual topics of vehicle recovery, driver management, vehicle safety, fuel solutions, tracking technology and how it extends to trailers, and also why electronic logging systems being enforced in the ﬁrst world to replace legacy paper logs is a good thing for driver management. The Telematics and Intelligent Mobility Conference has never failed in delivering value on cutting edge updates in transport and logistics technology, and this time will be no exception.
