Always connected, always in control
When it comes to applications and technologies about connected vehicles or even the best practices to monetise their data, then you can rely on Targa Telematics. With 20 years' experience in connected vehicles and over half a million of connected assets, Targa Telematics is one of the largest providers of technological solutions in telematics, smart mobility and digital IoT platforms for mobility operators in Europe.
The company through its open mobility platform delivers several solutions including fleet management, car sharing, insurance telematics, remote diagnostics and telemetry. Targa’s customers operate in the mobility industries such as car rentals, leasing companies, car makers, insurances, large corporate fleets and airport handlers. They are globally and widely adopting their solutions. The open mobility platform ingests data coming from the on-board unit provided by Targa Telematics or OEM data stream. All the data collected is normalized, stored and made available for the mobility applications.
Over the last few years mobility has been changing consistently and customers have been looking for new efficient mobility solutions. We are now facing a scenario that is getting more complex, since new smart mobility services are being developed and offered by taking advantage of innovative cutting-edge technologies. In this context, C.A.S.E. (Connected, Autonomous, Shared and Electric) vehicles are a good example to empower new smart solutions for Mobility. The evolution of the transportation market is currently unpredictable. No-one knows whose scenario will win or which technology will be the new standard. In this context, several players are moving towards contiguous market sectors (either buying complementary businesses or developing new solutions) to offer broader and more complete Smart Mobility solutions to their customers. The development of innovative solutions is crucial to ensure the competitiveness of companies and the sustainability of communities, also in a circular economy.
Targa Telematics has long time expertise on cybersecurity, a priority in the automotive sector and beyond. By providing different services, also for the airport sector, the company collaborates with multinationals requiring a high level of security. In this regard, "penetration tests" are frequently carried out and passed, according to its customers. Targa Telematics' technological platform allows verification of the compliancy and certification of this with current regulations, as well as the adequacy of the activities carried out by allowing access and use of vehicles only to authorized staff. Data is essential to create the best solution for customers: it operates worldwide and thus requires demanding levels of quality, efficiency, security and reliability. Moreover, data must be available globally since the company offers its solutions across Europe, the US, Asia and Oceania.
The 1NCE IoT Lifetime Flat offers exactly what Targa Telematics needs: A SIM card specialized in communication in the Internet of Things, which reliably provides connection across several networks and radio technologies (2G, 3G, 4G or NB-IoT). Not only in Italy or Europe but in over 100 countries worldwide. “Monitoring over 500,000 connected assets, mostly vehicles of the major car rental and leasing companies, shared fleets and airport handlers, data availability is crucial to guarantee the best services for our customers", emphasizes Alberto Falione, Vice President Sales, Targa Telematics “Also, we are closely collaborating with our partners and customers to co-create new mobility solutions – and data is essiential to take the right decision."
