Velio, providing an Infrastructure –as- a- Service (IaaS) solution to enable companies to get vehicles connected in real time, joins the ThingWorx partner program as a ThingWorx Ready partner. ThingWorx is the leading rapid application development platform for the Internet of Things.
Velio’s Vehicle Diagnostic Module (VDM), a next generation OBD-II device is certified as compatible with the ThingWorx platform, resulting in a pre-integrated solution that enables users to improve time to market and reduce overall solution development costs for customers utilizing the Velio solution. Velio has partnered with Transition Technologies, an experienced software provider and integrator for the energy, gas, automotive, aerospace and defense sectors, currently specializing in the Internet of Things (IoT) to deliver intelligent operations, diagnostics, connected and serviceable products. The partnership has resulted in a middleware application called Velio Webhook which can send data from Velio’s OBD-II devices into the Thingworx Platform. The program is fully configurable and is capable of tracking up to 20 vehicles. The application displays basic data coming from modules: GPS, accelerometer and OBD-II and enables users to create customized views depicting the data that is important to them while also enabling access to both live and historical data. The application will be made available in the ThingWorx Marketplace.
Velio differentiates themselves from other vendors by providing a secure solution which supports global cellular connectivity. This unique feature requires no complicated configurations and uses advanced cellular connectivity technology to transmit anywhere in the world making global deployments cost efficient and scalable. Velio devices can securely transmit a vast amount of vehicle data at high frequency intervals.
“We’re excited to announce that the Velio Technologies (Velio) OBD-II device has been certified as ThingWorx Ready,” said Chris Kuntz, Vice President Ecosystem Programs, ThingWorx. “The ThingWorx Ready program is designed to accelerate IoT solution development, and we believe the ability to utilize the Velio connected car technology in our Marketplace will enable partners and customers to improve time to market with their managed connected car infrastructure - merging hardware, cellular networks, and web services into one easy-to-use service offering."
