AT&T, Geotab partner on transportation decarbonization

Currently, the transportation sector is the single largest source of greenhouse gas emission in the United States.

To support the goal of dramatic emissions reduction, Geotab is participating in AT&T’s Connected Climate Initiative (CCI), a collaboration that works on connectivity-based solutions to reduce greenhouse emissions by 1 gigaton by 2035. The effort brings together corporate leaders, universities and non-profit organizations to unleash the power of connectivity solutions, including the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and edge computing. 

Geotab’s solutions include the Green Fleet Dashboard, a tool for improving a fleet’s fuel economy and reducing emissions, and the EV Suitability Assessment (EVSA), which offers data-driven recommendations to make the transition to electric vehicles as seamless as possible. Geotab’s telematics solution pairs with AT&T’s IoT platforms and nationwide data network to help any business or government entity look holistically at their fleet of vehicles. The combined technologies allow users to make assessments from a single analytics-based platform, the companies say.

The companies say this collaboration can provide several impacts for customers. Enabling tracking and managing of fuel consumption and idling trends, optimizing routes and coaching drivers on fuel efficiency with a connected fleet platform can simplify tasks and provide real-time performance insights to manage costs, while also reducing emissions. Having real-time data in hand can also support the identification of which fleet vehicles would be prime for transitioning to alternative fuel vehicles and which can wait, as any transition for a large fleet will often take time and require a rollout.
