Teltonika Smart Autonomous Solutions (SAS) is delighted to announce its cooperation with GOVECS Group, Europe’s leading manufacturer of electric scooters. Teltonika’s TFT100 trackers will be incorporated in GOVECS scooters with the view to offer full-connectivity solutions for end customers.
For years GOVECS had been providing services to major players in the e-scooter sharing field, such as Cityscoot in France, eCooltra in Portugal and Italy, Emmy in Germany or Felyx in the Netherlands. After advanced discussions in the Q4 of 2020, we have reached an agreement with GOVECS to implement our TFT100 tracker into Govecs’ e-scooters.
Martynas Osauskas, CEO of Teltonika Telemedic & Smart Autonomous Solutions, commented on an agreement: “I am glad that one of our best developments – TFT100 (E-Scooter Tracker) – can provide a significant value and enrich GOVECS scooters with remote control possibility. Arguably, GOVECS has grown a reputation as a professional and top manufacturer of electric scooters. For us, it is an honour to have it as a trusted partner in the European market and all over the world. Thanks to the synergy and common trust, we are now at a very fruitful partnership path”.
Thomas Grübel, founder and CEO of GOVECS, said: “We are convinced that we have found the perfect partner in Teltonika. The technical and customer support, we have received already, is of the highest quality”.
Functionalities and benefits of TFT100 for customers
The implemented TFT100 will communicate with GOVECS’ cloud server using API. Relevant information regarding the battery status or the state of the drivetrain (mode, speed or mileage) will be sent directly to the cloud. Besides that, TFT100 collects data about the real-time location of the scooter as well as additional parameters, for example, indication if the top case is closed. Furthermore, the device can send various commands back to the scooter, such as locking and unlocking the vehicle or its components (e.g handlebar or the top case). Overall, the implementation of the telemetric device forms the basis for fleet management. “The scooters are now fully connected, which is particularly important to our sharing and delivery customers as they will have full control over their fleet”, - commented Thomas Grübel.
It is also possible to develop different front-end solutions like an app for delivery customers as well as for end-users of a sharing solution for example. Also, private customers will benefit from cooperation with Teltonika.
In compliance with the needs of GOVECS, Teltonika SAS team went through the diligent process until all of the requirements were met and the perfect solution was found. Now we are closely working with GOVECS engineers to make sure that none of the details goes unnoticed. Implementation of special command support and enhanced safety – all of that being done to ensure the maximum delivery of a solution. "Easy and remote data access does not only allow convenient fleet control but also it serves as a perfect diagnostics tool to improve the performance of e-scooter and its new versions in the future", - said Martynas Osauskas.
Timeline and further plans
Currently, GOVECS is in the final testing phase, the series production with implemented telematics devices will start in March. The scooter-manufacturer is going to start with two models: The Schwalbe for sharing-purposes and a modified and further developed version of GOVECS FLEX.
