Zipabout showcased their Zipabout Mobility-as-a-Service platform, a ground-breaking data aggregation and communication platform for the transport industry. It is a large scale, real-time big-data platform which consumes, process and normalises live streams of operational, environmental and passenger-level behavioural data across an entire transportation network. Advanced machine learning techniques identify data patterns, allowing transport operators to gather highly detailed passenger behavioural information, predict service disruption, optimise capacity and deliver fully personalised communications at an individual level.
Immense Simulations showcased first of a kind, city scale, predictive simulation tools for fleet managers. By understanding and simulating the transport network across entire cities, our tools deliver unparalleled insight that drive greater efficiencies and cost savings. Fusing together novel, disparate data sources with machine based learning underpinned by deep sector knowledge, we deliver both strategic & operational enhanced decision making capabilities.
Edg-VR will create a scalable, multi-subject training workshop for Anglian Water. The training covered subjects such as driving safety, vehicle inspection and roadside maintenance. The training was delivered using mobile VR technology, networked via a wireless hub.
Toyota is the world leader in the electrification of passenger car powertrains having sold more than 10.7 million petrol electric hybrid and plugin vehicles since we pioneered the technology 20 years ago. 4 out of 5 electric vehicles in the world today is a Toyota or Lexus model. As every other manufacturer follows our path we are now leading the next phase in electric powertrain development, the hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle.
Our Corporate CarSharing solution, AlphaCity is an innovation in today's world of mobility. This fresh alternative to grey fleet, pool cars and ad-hoc rental vehicles has already proven to reduce fleet mobility costs.
