Spoke will use T IoT to protect vulnerable road users
Mobility platform Spoke has announced that it will use T IoT from T-Mobile and Deutsche Telekom to protect vulnerable road users (VRUs) such as cyclists.
Spoke aims to protect VRUs by connecting vehicles such as bicycles to the Internet of Things and giving motorists greater awareness of their presence using C-V2X (Cell Vehicle-to-Everything) technology.
Spoke is on a number of major partnership signings. Last year, the company signed partnerships with Qualcomm and Amazon Web Services. This year, Spoke partnered with V2X connectivity giant Commsignia. Audi, on the other hand, has announced that it intends to integrate the Spoke platform so that cars can detect cyclists and other VRUs.
With this dynamic, Spoke is looking for a connectivity partner that can adapt to their needs.
T IoT, the global IoT connectivity solution from T-Mobile and Deutsche Telekom, will use Spoke to connect and manage Spokeware – a hardware and software system that digitally connects cyclists and motorists.
