ATILZE Digital Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of G3 Global Bhd (formerly Yen Global Bhd), signed a collaboration agreement with U Mobile Sdn Bhd for the telco to provide mobile connectivity to facilitate their connected car solutions.
The event officiating the partnership was attended by Minister of Transport Liow Tiong Lai, and the collaboration agreement was signed by Atilze chief executive officer Gerard Lim and U Mobile chief executive officer Wong Heang Tuck.
The partnership will see U Mobile providing 3G and 4G LTE connectivity for the Atilze Connected Car devices.
The Atilze on-board OBDII connected car devices are equipped with various sensors that collect a range of data that is sent to the Atilze Cloud Platform through the 3G and 4G LTE connectivity provided by U Mobile.
The Atilze Connected Car offers many data-driven applications including real-time diagnostics, predictive maintenance, next generation fleet monitoring and management, driving pattern analysis, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), in-car WiFi, in-car Infotainment, in-car e-Commerce and Usage Based Insurance (UBI).
These applications optimise vehicle operation, maintenance, customer satisfaction, security, improve in-car experience to enhance the comfort and convenience of the driver and passengers as well as safety for all road users.
For ride-sharing services, Atilze Connected Car solutions can offer in-car WiFi to improve the in-car experience of passengers with content and commerce possibilities as well as provide the necessary connectivity for an in-vehicle panic button that can be implemented to improve the safety of the passenger.
Additionally, the data collected from the connected car can be applied for new and differentiated Usage Based Insurance (UBI) products, in-line with the insurance detariffication that came into effect on July 1, 2017.
Apart from being a connectivity partner, U Mobile is also looking into bundling Atilze Connected Car solutions as part of its mobile plans for enterprise customers.
This means U Mobile’s enterprise customers will have the option of having Atilze Connected Car devices installed in their vehicles, and the various smart car solutions will be available through the telco’s 3G and 4G LTE connectivity.
“We are making significant commitments to lead the future of the connected car. We like U Mobile’s forward-looking leadership supporting our connected car agenda in Malaysia. IoT is becoming increasingly mainstream, hence Atilze wants to be amongst the first to offer customers smart and useful connected car digital services and solutions that will unlock the unlimited potential of our daily lives,” says Lim.
“U Mobile is constantly creating ideas to help our customers be unlimited in their daily lives and this partnership with Atilze is in sync with our overall approach. Through this agreement, we are honoured to be one of the connectivity partners powering Atilze’s connected devices which will enable local business to benefit from connected car solutions and features,” says Wong.
