"Data analysis plays one of the key roles in energy and charge management for electric vehicles. We are therefore particularly pleased to announce that VDL Bus & Coach is now leveraging the advantages of our connectivity solution as a standard feature,” emphasizes Thomas Rösch, CEO of Openmatics. “As a leading provider of electric buses in Western Europe, we are flexible and open to technology, and we expect the same of our telematics system. Openmatics is the ideal partner for us,” adds Henk Coppens, CEO of VDL Bus & Coach.
Its open connectivity platform gives VDL a complete overview of the efficiency and status of its vehicles, which helps the company considerably reduce its total operating costs. In addition, the data provided by Openmatics enables new technologies to be implemented and further developed in vehicles. Not only that, the Openmatics solution also comes with application programming interfaces or APIs as well as software development tools (Software Development Kit, SDK).
