OPENMATICS

We open ways to the world of intelligent connectivity

The demand for connectivity within the modern world is enormous and we at OPENMATICS are fully aware of this fact. For the last 6 years we have been constantly thinking about better solutions and more efficient enhancements in telematics.

We had to overcome a few challenges at the very beginning of our journey, though. As a part of ZF Friedrichshafen, it was essential to start functioning right away up to the highest standards, but on the other hand to become easily recognisable and to be able to bring some unique value of our own. Then we had to think about the right business partners who could deliver a superb quality and maybe also inspire us on our way. And the most important element we bore in our minds was our customers. We wanted to create something that could be very easily applicable to everyday operations and the benefits would be visible right away.

To be able to find the best solutions we identified 4 main needs of our customers, these are as follows:

The most valuable commodity we all have is time. So we created apps which can remotely download all kinds of information and optimize fleet processes immediately. Your drivers can be informed about the duration for which they have been driving, for instance. This saves time and enhances safety.

Our system will provide your drivers with feedback about fuel consumption, ideal speed or rpm. This kind of information not only help reduce fuel costs it also helps lower the costs of wearing parts such as brakes and tires. Only those who can operate on cost-effective basis can stay competitive nowadays.

All above the standard helps beat the competition. And that is why we add also a multimedia system into our platform. Our customers can provide their passengers with online onboard entertainment including internet access.

So far everything has been focused only on the space around the vehicle. And we felt the need to pay attention to transported goods too. That is why we invented very easy solution in the shape of a small tag. Our customers can check every move on their mobile phone or tablet. They can see right away if there is something wrong, such as higher temperature which would lead to spoiled transported food for example. It means they have more time to react and deal with the problem. We constantly help increase quality throughout the whole chain.

To save time and money of our customers both at the same time we looked at complications which may be caused by late diagnostics and projected the need into creating various apps. Some of them can plan preventive maintenance while the others can automatically send an error message once there is a failure detected.

We see great potential in the OPENMATICS platform for the future. A vehicle will be a part of networked mobility concepts. As it fast becomes an “IP-address on wheels”, it will soon be capable of identifying service intervals and self-initiating services and repair using data available from the platform. The vehicle will be able to communicate and we will use innovative solutions to ensure that the message is understood.
