Keolis and Pilotfish, a company specializing in the development of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for public transport, have signed a partnership to deploy IoT solutions in real operating conditions onboard buses and coaches.

As part of this agreement Keolis will equip its vehicles, in France and in the rest of Europe, with an innovative device that in collecting technical and driving data, will support the adaptation of operating and maintenance methods to optimize energy use and operational performance.

The vehicles will be equipped with a 4G internet solution to connect the vehicles and their equipment to the company's information systems.

This device complies with European standards and ITxPT1 specifications supported by Keolis.

The gateway, developed by Pilotfish, will be used to collect technical data in real-time from the vehicles (e.g. engine temperature, battery charge, "Alcolock") and from the driver's performance (e.g. braking). Analysis of the data will allow Keolis to adjust its operating and maintenance processes to optimise fleet performance. For example, the data will be used to support driver training in "eco-driving," which will significantly improve the passenger experience while saving energy. The data collected and processed will allow the development of new and innovative business applications.

Keolis will initially install the device on 60 "pilot" vehicles and intends to equip at least 750 vehicles in France by 2021. Keolis also plans to develop the solution for the European market.
