Targa Telematics and astara Connect join forces to advance connected mobility solutions.

Targa Telematics has formed an association with astara Connect to accelerate the development of digital solutions that integrate advanced connectivity, artificial intelligence, and cutting-edge technologies in order to improve the efficiency, safety and sustainability of future mobility.

Targa Telematics – a technology company specializing in the development of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and digital platforms for connected mobility – will provide its pioneering technology for the collection, analysis and transmission of vehicle telematics data. Seamless integration of data streams will enable the development of innovative mobility services based on integrated Targa Telematics devices.

astara Connect, as the first iPaaS or “low-code” integration platform associated with mobility, allows the connection of any data, service or device in order to streamline, simplify and consolidate information for obtaining valuable insights, such as behaviors, preferences, usage patterns or projections. In this context, the incorporation of new data flows will be key for improving data quality and developing advanced solutions.

The agreement with Targa Telematics will initially cover up to 30,000 astara connected vehicles in Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, Chile, and Peru, amongst other countries. Additional projects are planned from 2024 onwards to expand the number of connected vehicles and extend this collaboration geographically.

In an increasingly interconnected world, smart mobility is one of the fundamental pillars for economic and social development. The integration between Targa Telematics and astara Connect’s digital platforms is a major breakthrough for mobility operators, who increasingly require innovative solutions to exploit the native data provided by connected vehicles and create specific solutions with them, digitizing their fleets quickly, easily and efficiently. These solutions allow for optimization of the performance, management and supply of vehicles, reducing the environmental impact and providing a more comfortable and safer driving experience to users.

Nicola De Mattia, CEO of Targa Telematics, commented: “At Targa Telematics we are committed to building a connected mobility ecosystem that promotes efficiency and sustainability. The strategic alliance with an industry leader like astara confirms our ability to develop cutting-edge technologies that respond to the evolving needs of our customers. Together, we are committed to driving smarter, safer and more sustainable mobility for all”.

According to Jose Garcia Pacheco, astara’s Chief Innovation Officer and Managing Director of astara Connect: “It is becoming increasingly clear that the mobility of the future will have data as its central axis, which is key to achieving the goals of modern corporations. By obtaining accurate, real-time measurements of their assets based on high-quality data, we can design even more effective and innovative solutions that contribute to achieving these goals and more sustainable and advanced mobility”.
