Rivian, Geotab partner on commercial vehicle telematics

Rivian's embedded telematics and Geotab's fleet management services will enable fleets to improve productivity, compliance and safety.

Geotab and Rivian are partnering to deliver an integrated data solution for Rivian’s commercial vehicles. The companies said the collaborative solution will use embedded telematics in Rivian’s commercial vehicles to enable the integration of vehicle data into the MyGeotab platform. The solution will be compatible with all commercially connected Rivian vehicles in the U.S.

“You hear a lot about the coming of the software-defined vehicle. The combination of Rivian’s rich sensor data capabilities accessed via the Geotab platform makes it a reality,” Rob Minton, associate vice president of connected car development at Geotab, said. “Not only are fleets getting a technology-rich electric commercial vehicle, the Geotab and Rivian collaboration will supply fleets with a connected solution that is simple to activate, cost-effective and will help fleet managers better manage their fleets through real, quality data insights.”

“Rivian is excited to add Geotab to its growing ecosystem of strategic fleet management partners,” Brandon Blumber, director of business development at Rivian, said. “Rivian has developed a truly software-defined vehicle and has access to unique attributes and analytics that simply do not exist in the industry today. Through strategic partnerships, our commercial customers can leverage this rich data, advanced insights, and analytics to increase fleet uptime, optimize vehicle performance and reduce total cost of ownership – all without the need of additional hardware on the vehicle.”
