ABI Research Forecasts Huge Growth in Car Telematics, from which ML-C will Benefit

The percentage of new passenger cars globally shipping with factory-installed telematics will increase from less than 10% in 2010 to 62% in 2016. This is the main result of a new report from ABI Research. It is yet another encouragement for ML-C to enter this large market segment with its perfectly suited platform solution. Read more details about the trend here.

 

M2M Connections Forecasted to Grow at a CAGR of 32%

According to a new research report of Berg Insight, the total number of wireless M2M connections is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 32.0 percent to reach 294.1 million connections in 2015. If only a third of these devices had GPS or GLONASS positioning included, which is more than a conservative assumption, then ML-C's target market would hit the 100 million unit size in 2015.

New Generation of Bicycle Sharing

The ML-C team happily recognized a new trend in bicycle sharing called “social bikes”. Even today it comes at an improved cost structure, which will surely boost its adoption in the metropoles of the world. A field trial is about to start and an explanation of the system is given by its creator Ryan Rzepecki at socialbicycles.com.

The key requirements of the SoBi system are

  • GPS positioning,
  • Mobile communication,
  • Secure locking, 

requirements, that coincide with the sweet spot of ML-C’s GG1 capabilities. We can reasonably expect that ML-C’s GG1 system platform

  • could bring cost further down significantly,
  • could enable battery operation,
  • could improve positioning accuracy,

triggering considerations at ML-C to offer GG1 into this new and fascinating “green” application.
