PUTRAJAYA: Atilze Digital Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of G3 Global Bhd (formerly known as Yen Global Bhd), signed a collaboration agreement with telco operator U Mobile Sdn Bhd for the provision of 3G and 4G LTE connectivity for the Atilze Connected Car devices.

The Atilze on-board OBDII connected car devices are equipped with various sensors that collect a range of data that is sent to the Atilze Cloud Platform through the 3G and 4G LTE connectivity provided by U Mobile. 

The Atilze Connected Car offers many data-driven applications including real-time diagnostics, predictive maintenance, next generation fleet monitoring and management, driving pattern analysis, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (Adas), Usage Based Insurance (UBI), as well as in-car WiFi, infotainment, and e-commerce.

These applications optimise vehicle operation, maintenance, customer satisfaction, security, and improve in-car experience to enhance the comfort and convenience of the driver and passengers as well as safety for all road users.

Statistically, the installation of Connected Adas for commercial vehicles are proven to reduce road accidents by up to 80%.

Many countries, even around Asia, have mandated the installation of Connected Adas in commercial vehicles that have resulted in dramatic reduction in road accidents.

Apart from being a connectivity partner, U Mobile is also looking into bundling Atilze Connected Car solutions as part of its mobile plans to its enterprise customers.

This means that U Mobile’s enterprise customers will have the option of having Atilze Connected Car devices installed in their vehicles, and the various smart car solutions that will be available through the telco’s 3G and 4G LTE connectivity.

Atilze CEO Gerard Lim said: “Atilze is in full support of the Ministry of Transport’s action around road safety, especially with the recent Pandu Cermat, Sampai Selamat campaign.

“We look forward to working closely with the Ministry and industry partners to bring the many benefits of Connected Car to Malaysia and to make Malaysian roads safer for everyone.”

The event officiating the partnership was attended by Minister of Transport Malaysia Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

“The collaboration between Atilze and U Mobile is a timely response to address the challenges on road safety that our nation is currently facing.

“The Ministry will consider the implementation of Connected Adas for commercial vehicles on Malaysian roads that we expect will improve the commercial drivers’ driving behaviour to then create safer roads and reduce road fatalities for everyone,” said Liow.
