SESSION 1: Fleet Telematics, Advanced location technology

for complex industry use cases





In this session we will explore the power of location technology in fleet telematics, look at the value this brings to the industry through a range of use cases and examples. We will review key new location technology and industry trends and look ahead at what role location technology may play in the future. We will discuss what barriers there are to adoption, what challenges there are in the industry from environmental, legal and safety through to availability of data and technology.

Enterprise IoT, HERE Technologies


SESSION 2: Implementation, Utilization, and Sustainability of a

Telematics System


During this session we will discuss the importance of good

implementation practices with regard to the physical device,

the system’s capability to transfer knowledge to its users, and

the support those users might need to get the most out of the

features available. We will talk about ways of insuring that systems

remain up to date, about whether these solutions should be

integrated with other software and how that could be done.

What is the overall view of digitization and what role do telematics

companies see themselves playing in the future?
