 2023-10-12 By: InnoVEX Team

The innovation hub of Asia, InnoVEX 2023 was held from May 30 to June 2 in Taipei; attracting over 20,000 visitors both locally and internationally. Among the main events was the InnoVEX Forum that invited influential speakers from industry leading companies and rising startup teams.

One of the speakers in the InnoVEX 2023 Next Generation EV Innovations Summit Forum is Mr. Cristoph Ludewig, Vice President of Geotab. Geotab is a global leader in connected transportation solutions that provide telematics to over 47,000 customers in 150 countries. Backed by a team of industry-leading data scientists and AI experts, Geotab is unlocking the power of data to understand real-time and predictive analytics.

In his keynote, Mr. Ludewig said that any company that owns vehicles and want to manage their fleets very efficiently will rely on accurate data. Information such as weather, road, and traffic conditions will also be valuable for fleet operators as they might affect the operational safety and efficiency. In this situation, the vehicles are not only data users, but also data sources.

Telematics for users today rely on 6 main aspects: productivity, optimization, safety, sustainability, compliance, and expandability. Of the 6 aspects, sustainability has become more important as companies hope to reduce their carbon footprint and potentially adopt more EVs in their fleet. However, this transition can be quite costly especially because the operators will need to purchase their new vehicles. For operators, telematics led data will be able to calculate the optimal solution for electrification.
