Solutions for smart cities have come to the fore, so are the main focus of attention from GMV here at the 2015 ITS World Congress. “People are talking more and more about the need for smarter, safer and cleaner mobility in cities,” says GMV’s business development executive for mobility services Sara Gutiérrez Lanza.
“The products and services of our GMV Mobility business provide the hardware and software associated with this growing demand for car and bike sharing networks, including the central ITS platform for public and private vehicle sharing, for example.”
GMV is headquartered in Spain, but working multinationally across Europe, India, ASEAN the US and South America. The firm is well known for its expertise in safety critical software, in aeronautics, space and defence industries, as well as transportation. GMV’s ITS services displayed here in Bordeaux include vehicle telematics, mobility apps and automotive products, in addition to the GMV Mobility business for Smart Cities.
“An example of this is the corporate car sharing provided by one of the main leasing companies in Spain. This vehicle fleet is used and shared by different users, managed using GMV hardware and software in cars sending information to a central platform,” says Lanza.
Other products on display on the GMV stand include aftermarket and embedded in-vehicle telematics units for fleet management, road user charging, pay-as-you-drive insurance, remote diagnostics and other telematics services.
