SAP brings Vehicle Insights for managing connected cars

|June 17, 2016 0

GERMANY: SAP has introduced an application, SAP Vehicle Insights which offers a variety of services to manage connected vehicles, including basic data analytics that can be used for fleet analytics and vehicle diagnostics.

This flexible application is based on SAP HANA Cloud Platform and collects, stores, maps and analyzes real-time sensor data from vehicles and equipment. This data can then be integrated or consolidated with both external and customer data.

The application enables companies to use information about entire fleets and car-specific key data like gear recognition, fuel stops, scores for economical driving or heat mapping to improve not only the management of their fleets but also of individual vehicles.

With predictive maintenance functions for mileage and tire wear, repairs can be planned more efficiently, thus reducing costs.

The valuable insights also help companies to shorten their time to market for scenarios involving building connected vehicles.

“Vehicles and, to an increasing extent, machines need to be integrated in digital business processes. Whether it is a truck on the road, a forklift at the warehouse or an excavator at a construction site, everything needs to be operated in the most efficient way possible. We help customers not only to rapidly develop and implement these scenarios for their businesses, but also to validate them in the market and scale them accordingly over a short period of time,” said Stephan Brand, senior vice president, Products & Innovation Internet of Things (IoT) and Moving Assets, SAP.

These scenarios include conventional areas of logistics optimization as well as management of commercial fleets, which are able to use vehicle data like geo-positions, load weight, temperature or the estimated time of arrival. Additional services for geo-fencing or speed-limit analysis support new business processes and models in the fields of digital farming and telematics for insurance.

SAP Vehicle Insights enables innovative business processes with minimal disruption to existing systems. Standardized web-enabled services with open integration reduce costs through improved operations, planning and control. This helps create new business models, increase business agility and optimize fleet operations.
