How to connect vehicles and scale with ease with Wunder’s IoT Connector
Whether you’re in the process of setting up your own fleet of shared vehicles or you’ve already established yourself and have a fleet of vehicles on the road, there’s one thing that will make it easier for you to add vehicles and scale quickly and that’s our IoT Connector. Read on to find out how this single piece of software can boost your revenue and optimize your operations.
What is the IoT Connector?
The IoT Connector is a single piece of software that connects IoT-fitted vehicles to the Wunder backend. Every IoT device speaks its own language and has its own configurations. The strength of our IoT Connector software lies in the fact that it acts as a translator to facilitate smooth communication between the various different types of IoT devices and the backend.
When should I add the IoT Connector to my subscription?
The ideal time for you to consider opting for the IoT Connector is right after you have chosen your vehicles. There are a lot of IoT aggregators out there, but not all of them can connect to an extensive range of vehicles, so it’s important to do your research to ensure that the solution you choose works for all of your vehicles.
Our IoT Connector is designed to unify all of your vehicles under one piece of software so you can connect all of them, keep tabs on them, and make decisions accordingly. Choosing to use the IOT Connector from day one will save you a lot of time, effort and money in the long run.
How does it work?
When using the IoT Connector, the first step is the Preflight Check, which will be carried out by our experts to ensure that we can connect your IoT devices in as smooth and hassle-free way as possible.
During this process, we start by having a closer look at the what and how. Then, we take a deep dive into your hardware and vehicles to get a better understanding of what is possible for your business and your fleet. In this way, the IoT Connector is more than just a piece of software but a bespoke service which we tailor to you and your needs.
The next step is to connect your vehicles to our backend. With our IoT Connector, we can do this for our sharing-ready vehicles such as our co-developed Yadea e-moped and e-bike, or your own vehicles regardless of the brand and what IoT technology they are fitted with. If you have your own vehicles, then please get in touch with us to find out how best we can help you connect them.
Why should I use Wunder’s IoT Connector?
Our IoT Connector is a so-called Value Added service, which means that it is a paid-for extra that you can add to your monthly subscription. So, why should you consider adding it and what does it add to your day-to-day operations?
This piece of software, which comes with its own application, offers a huge range of benefits to make your operations smoother, more efficient, and, ultimately, more cost-effective.
On the IoT Connector dashboard, you can:
- Get a complete overview of your fleet
- See the total number of devices
- Onboard vehicles seamlessly
- Filter and manage your vehicles according to the model, configuration, and location
- See when each individual vehicle was last active
- Find out more about the firmware for each vehicle, ensure that it is uniform and update it when needed
- Track all of the interactions that your customers have had with your vehicles
- Update the configurations to do things like set the maximum speed for each vehicle, configure the locks, adjust the alarm and its volume
- Reboot or shut down vehicles when needed
- Identify any errors and troubleshoot remotely
Why the IoT Connector is a must-have for mobility providers?
With the IoT Connector, configuring vehicles is almost instantaneous. Gone are the days of having to go out to collect all your vehicles before you can update or reconfigure them.
The IoT Connector gives you 24/7 access to data about the health of your fleet. This means you can automate certain tasks and organize your ground crew to ensure that batteries are replaced and damage is repaired as quickly as possible.
Our IoT software gives you the power to take full control of your fleet and enables you to make all kinds of changes at the click of a button.
