M2M Communications Benefit 2012 Olympic Games in London

June 06, 2012


The 2012 Olympic Games to be held in London are on its way, and will require the best possible technology to ensure high levels of security and safety throughout the competition. 

With Traffilog, a premier Web-based telematics provider, participants will receive just that.

Alexander Dennis, the U.K.’s largest bus and coach manufacturer, has announced that the system will be implemented in public service vehicles just in time for the summer Olympiad. There are two specific Traffilog solutions within the system, which will ensure security and safety in a vehicle while the Games take place: Traffisafe and Traffimech. 

Traffisafe detects harmful and inefficient driving behavior that can be sustained more quickly, and Traffimech transmits vehicle data in real time and can detect any mechanical failure before it happens. 

This state-of-the-art technology allows public authorities to monitor a vehicle when necessary, ensure that there are no glitches, and that things run smoothly and efficiently during the three-week event.

The Traffilog system saves fleet operators money with a more proficient vehicle use with little fuel consumption, and its M2M device – featuring the GE863-GPS advanced cellular modules – can wirelessly transmit real-time driver and mechanical performance to their fleet management center.

This will ultimately ensure the safety and security of passengers during the 2012 games, leaving their minds worry free and fully concentrated on the gold. The Traffilog’s application for the Olympic games proves to be well worth the cost, and also the overall significance of M2M technology, which continues to expand as its use becomes more in demand.   

The solution is now available in 26 countries and has supplied blue-chip organizations, including UPS, Fed-Ex, Nestle and several others. The company’s service has been available to the U.K. since 2007.
