The first million connected assets is only the start, we arecommitted to remain a leader in this field.”

As more and more people move into cities, the needs for better infrastructure as well as transportation of both people and goods are growing. Mr Lars Stenqvist, Chief Technology Officer at the Volvo Group said that “The Volvo Group is a pioneer in connected vehicles and we use the knowledge and insights we get from connectivity in strategic alliances with customers and other partners to speed up the innovation cycle.”

Volvo Group uses data from connected vehicles and construction equipment to develop solutions that provide real value to the customer as well as to the society at large.

For owners of construction equipment, trucks and buses uptime is vital. Thanks to the collected data, wear on crucial parts can be predicted, services planned and spare parts ordered in advance all reducing downtime for the owner, thus leading to increased productivity.
