Making mobility sustainable

Data, analytics and IoT-driven services are central to the development of clean, green mobility. 

Sustainability should be the buzzword on the lips of every fleet manager. Faced with urbanisation, pollution, traffic and the high cost of individual mobility, sustainability is not simply a fairer approach to the planet’s future; it is also central to delivering significant cost savings to fleet budgets by minimising the consumption of resources.

From a fleet perspective, the sustainability umbrella covers the management of vehicles’ total cost of ownership, compliance with regulations, and ensuring the safety of drivers and all road users. Every fleet manager has a duty to focus on these issues in order to safeguard corporate investments and satisfy the changing needs of employees, who are increasingly attracted to mobility services rather than the individual vehicle ownership model of one car, one driver. 

OCTO Telematics sees mobility as one of the key elements in the transition from an exclusively analogue world to an increasingly digital one. Vehicle sharing, ride sharing, car-pooling, short and long-term rental, leasing, and corporate fleets will all be important pillars of the ‘sharing economy’, offering operationally functional and effective alternatives to long-established models of vehicle ownership. 

Connected society

As the world’s largest telematics and data analytics service provider, OCTO is laying the foundation for this new era of smart mobility (also known as mobility as a service) by offering technological solutions that connect the world of mobility through advanced analytics and IoT-driven services. OCTO are building a connected society by creating solutions that link connected vehicles with connected places and connected people, inspired by OCTO's Vision Zero goals – zero crashes, zero congestion and zero pollution.

OCTO use sophisticated machine learning algorithms to transform data into actionable insights, allowing its clients to dynamically manage their mobility, optimise vehicle use and enhance driver safety. Connected vehicles are at the heart of OCTO's mobility as a service solutions with their ability to capture information related to mobility and receive contextual information such as traffic flow and electric vehicle charging stations.

But the electrification of vehicles is only the first step towards more sustainable transport. The next steps must include fundamental changes to models of vehicle ownership and use. A truly sustainable future demands fewer vehicles, shared by more people who continue to enjoy the ease and convenience that traditional vehicle ownership has provided.
