Sweden: Icomera Join Information Technology for Public Transport Initiative
Icomera Join Information Technology for Public Transport Initiative
Icomera, a frontrunner in Swedens technology industry and provider of mobile internet solutions, has become an associate member of the Information Technology for Public Transport (ITxPT). As part of the initiative, it plans to implement working standards and practices for plug-and-play IT systems used on board vehicles and in offices.
Membership of ITxPT will enable Icomera to work with vehicle manufacturers, service providers and operating companies. It currently delivers internet connection to tens of thousands of vehicles and millions of passengers every week, providing a range of virtual applications such as passenger infotainment, remote condition monitoring and real-time video surveillance.
Umberto Guida, UITP EU Projects Director and Chairman of the ITxPT Executive Board said:
Icomera’s one box virtualisation strategy is very attractive to ITxPT’s existing members. It alleviates many of the challenges transport authorities, operators and manufacturers face when attempting to adopt new technologies, minimising disruptive installations, unnecessary equipment redundancies, wiring, maintenance access and quality issues.
Karl-Johan Holm, President and CEO of Icomera, said:
Icomera’s approach is very much aligned with ITxPT’s goal of establishing commonly accepted standards for the safe and cost-efficient development of digital systems for public transport. By becoming a member of this initiative we have reaffirmed our commitment to our vision.
