Spoke will use T IoT to protect vulnerable road users

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. Misha Dhegihan, senior vice president of strategy, products and solutions at T-Mobile Business Group, said: โ€œSpace is exactly the kind of customer, innovation and global application we had in mind when we launched T IoT earlier this year. Spoke is committed to using IoT and 5G for global good, and with T IoT, they have the team and solutions to manage all their connections around the world โ€“ helping the most vulnerable on our streets. by connecting them with the mobility ecosystem around them. .โ€ 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 Spoke ware โ€“ a hardware and software system that digitally connects cyclists and motorists. Jarrett Wendt, CEO of Spoke, said: โ€œT IoT supports the low-latency speed and massive data needed to connect the global network of Spoke hardware and software on the go. Thanks to this, the Spoke will offer cyclists more than just rest. It will provide a premium user experience with driving-enhancing features built just for them โ€“ such as traffic information, navigation, driving and health information. T-Mobile and Deutsche Telekom’s leading innovation makes them the perfect teammate for the Spoke solution. According to the World Health Organization, around 41,000 cyclists die each year while cycling to school, work, shopping centers or home. Around 50 million bicycles were sold worldwide last year and this number is likely to increase as more and more people look for greener, healthier and cheaper modes of transport. To protect the growing number of VRUs, platforms like Spoke โ€“ supported by reliable connectivity โ€“ are essential. Dennis Niles, CEO of Deutsche Telekom IoT, said: โ€œThe future of our transportation system is based on a robust vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) ecosystem delivered through 5G global mobile connectivity. We are excited to support pioneers like Spoke and help create a trusted connected system for mobility safety and rich rider experiences through our global T IoT footprint. T IoT supports various connectivity technologies โ€“ including NB-IoT, LTE-M, LTE and 5G โ€“ in 188 destinations worldwide. Such a strong connection helps ensure that alerts are sent as reliably and quickly as needed. (Image credit: T-Mobile) Want to learn about IoT from industry leaders?
