TRANZO works on Smart Mobility-as-a-Service (SMaaS)

Cities around the world strive to solve problems related to traffic congestion, transportation emissions, and road security. To help with this, companies and research organizations work on smart transit solutions. These solutions incorporate remote monitoring, capacity calculations, and driver’s condition checking to ensure the safety and efficiency of public transit.

Indian startup TRANZO develops Smart Mobility as a Service solutions. The startup’s services include the SMARTDRIVER driver portal, the Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled measuring tool for capacity, fuel efficiency, and energy utilization called SAFEROADS, as well as the remote monitoring and alert management system SAFEBUS. Additionally, TRANZO offers smart solutions for school buses, trucks, and ride-sharing services thus ensuring safe transportation.

Ozi Technology offers Seat Sensor Systems

Understanding and predicting the load of public transit services allows transportation companies and cities to adjust bus schedules, capacity, and frequency. These improve transit reliability and reduce waiting times for passengers. To determine passenger load, startups work on seat sensors that identify and track the presence of passengers. Additionally, such sensor systems enable presence monitoring and transportation security for school bus transfers.

Turkish startup Ozi Technology develops seat sensor systems for buses. The startup’s system identifies passenger presence and the seat belt status. Moreover, the system is compatible with in-vehicle cameras and enables access to real-time passenger information. Additionally, Ozi Technology develops a module for school buses that allows parents to monitor their children’s safety and receive alerts when the child is absent or forgotten on the bus.

iPoint offers Connected Bus Solutions

Connected transit solutions increase the security and efficiency of public transportation. These solutions span a wide range of technologies, from Wi-Fi to Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communication. To this end, startups offer connected transit solutions to increase passenger satisfaction, ensure vehicle safety, and optimize routing strategies.

British startup iPoint offers connected bus, coach, and train solutions. The startup’s iCentral platform provides services such as advanced telemetry, security monitoring, passenger information systems, and high-speed Wi-Fi connection to transportation companies. iPoint allows transportation operators to centralize access to vehicle management and operational data, thereby improving transit efficiency.

Bercman Technologies develops a Smart Mobility Hub (SMH)

Current, often outdated, passenger information systems take a significant amount of time to update the transit schedule, especially in rural areas. Moreover, these systems rarely include user interaction modules, which renders them almost useless for passenger-driven transportation modes such as on-demand transit. Therefore, startups work on electronic mobility hub platforms that provide passenger information and incorporate user interaction features.

Estonian startup Bercman Technologies develops a smart mobility hub platform for public transportation. The startup’s digital information center provides passengers with timely updated schedules, routes, and traffic conditions. Additionally, the SMH allows passengers to schedule a bus directly from the interface, facilitating the adoption of on-demand transit services.

ellipse produces Printed Circuits for Transit

The widespread use of transit cards prompts transit companies to improve the functionality and sustainability of these cards. To address this, startups enhance the cards with digital screens that display relevant information, such as the number of remaining trips left. The application of such solutions allows transit operators to improve card convenience and the resulting passenger experience.

US-based startup ellipse develops printed circuit solutions for the transit and eCommerce industries. The startup’s solutions display balance information, remaining trips, or expiration date information directly on the card. This allows passengers to instantly check the balance and make sure that the payment is successful. Additionally, since ellipse’s printed circuits do not require a battery, the card’s lifecycle is not limited by self-discharge, which significantly increases the shelf life of a card.
