TomTom (TOM2) today announces a deal with Eliocity, part of Mobivia Group, and creator of the Xee connected vehicles solution. Eliocity will bring to market a professional solution which is designed to offer drivers of light commercial vehicles a better way to communicate, locate and work together, by combining data from their XeeCONNECT box in the TomTom BRIDGE platform.
The combination of TomTom BRIDGE and Eliocity’s expertise will offer a unique, efficient and innovative solution making it easier to use light commercial vehicles. In particular, drivers will be able to communicate with colleagues in real time and locate their position using GPS; they will also benefit from alerts about the condition of their vehicles.
Yvan Gravier, Managing Director, Eliocity, said: “This synergy between our companies epitomizes Eliocity’s desire to make Xee an open solution that is useful for all kinds of drivers. The partnership we have signed with TomTom enables us to expand our range of services, and to place the vehicle at the heart of digital mobility.”
