Targa Telematics – a tech company specialized in the development of digital solutions in the field of telematics, smart mobility and IoT platforms for mobility operators – is the technology partner of Duferco Energia, the energy company of the Duferco Group which manages the car sharing service in the city of Genoa. Elettra – this is the name of the service – relies on a fleet of internal combustion engine-vehicles plus 100 electric cars from Volkswagen, with the goal of having a fully electric fleet with zero emissions.
Thanks to the consolidated experience of Targa Telematics in the development of smart mobility solutions, Elettra allows vehicles to be used in free floating mode, with the possibility of picking up and returning cars in the city, in addition to the station based mode, in order to book cars located in 46 points in the city, meeting the different mobility needs of users.
Targa Telematics’ digital platform manages the service completely, from user registration to vehicle booking and the various payment methods. Moreover, by accessing the website or through the mobile app developed by Targa Telematics with Duferco Energia, users can book, pick up and return the car at the areas visible on the map, and manage car door opening and closing via smartphone, thanks also to Bluetooth technology.
“The evolution of the offer towards the world of electric cars and the service towards more flexible systems requires specific skills and know-how acquired over time. We are very pleased to be able to support the implementation of virtuous projects and in favor of sustainability for the community, developing turnkey solutions and ensuring optimal service management.” commented Roberto Bordin, Product Owner of the Targa Telematics Smart Mobility services.
