Keolis announced it has launched a new entity, Hove, a subsidiary of the Keolis Group assigned to the design and deployment of digital tools to boost shared mobility.
The products developed are based on analysis and processing of mobility data. They will aim to improve the understanding of mobility within a local region, orientate the transport offer, track its performance, and facilitate the journeys of passengers.
Hove brings together 110 mobility data experts of the Keolis Group, according to the company's news release.
The goal for Keolis' new entity is to support public transport authorities and passengers with digital products.
Hove features include:
- accelerate understanding of mobility and passengers' journeys within a local region.
- improve the quality of passenger information to make it available and accessible to the greatest possible number of people, in real time.
- increase the options available to passengers according to their travel criteria.
Keolis said Hove targets all within the mobility sector, public or private, offering digital products and tools.
Hove includes platforms like Patterns and Impulse. Patterns is a platform designed to analyze and understand mobility patterns within a given region, by collecting and studying anonymised GPS tracks. Impulse allows public transport authorities and operators to visualize a transport network's performance.
Hove also includes the Navitia trip planner. This integrates all transport modes, displaying timetables, traffic information, and next departures in real time.
Dotpulse is another tool in the new entity. This tool allows transport operators to measure the number of passengers on a transit line by collecting and processing WiFi tracks.
