Complete Coach Works Receives Contract for Remanufactured ZEPS 100% Battery- Electric Buses from Twin Transit

 

 

 

RIVERSIDE, CA – Complete Coach Works (CCW) is pleased to announce its contract to convert two, 2004 35′ Gillig buses into Zero Emission Propulsion System (ZEPS) buses for Twin Transit in Centralia, WA.

 

CCW takes previously used, internal combustion engine buses and remanufactures them into like-new vehicles containing ZEPS all-electric drivetrain systems. ZEPS is an integrated technology tested for more than 4 million miles of revenue service.

Each ZEPS vehicle will feature a 180KW electric PMS motor and controller. The motor and controller are designed to handle heavy duty drive cycles and provide high torque and top speeds. The ZEPS buses will also include a 403kWh battery pack and battery management system. In addition, a new electrically driven air compressor, electrically driven power steering pump, and new lightweight roof-mounted HVAC system will be added.

The ZEPS battery-electric buses will replace current buses in Twin Transit’s fleet to further improve the nation’s air quality environment. In addition to providing invaluable public health and environmental benefits, ZEPS delivers financial benefits, including substantially reduced maintenance costs and reduced fuel costs.

 

“Twin Transit has worked toward integrating green technologies for a long time. To see that dream becoming reality is truly fantastic,” states Andrea Culletto, Twin Transit’s Community Relations Director.

 

“In 2018, Twin Transit offered its riders free trips between the Twin Cities in an effort to engage the public and gather feedback on electric buses. Complete Coach Works provided Twin Transit with a ZEPS bus for the demonstration,” states Jim Paul, Northwest Regional CCW Sales Manager.  “The ZEPS bus was well received by Twin Transit and its riders. We are thrilled Twin Transit has given us the opportunity to provide its riders with familiar safe and reliable transportation.

 

“Complete Coach Works is wonderful to work with. They are great partners, integral to helping us realize the vision of a more sustainable future,” stated Andrea. Complete Coach Works continues to advance the industry with its multiple deployments throughout the United States. “Twin Transit will be a great addition. We look forward to the completion of this project,” states Jim.

Whole Foods Market Chooses Park Assist to Elevate the Parking Experience

Whole Foods Market Chooses Park Assist to Elevate
the Parking Experience

 

 

CHESHIRE, CT –  September 10th, 2020 – Park Assist® has been awarded the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract at Whole Foods Market HQ and Flagship store in Austin, Texas. The multinational supermarket chain, founded in 1980, quickly rose in popularity thanks to its focus on quality, sustainability, and natural and organic foods. This commitment to quality also extends to the value Whole Foods places on both customer and employee satisfaction.

Whole Foods’ HQ and Flagship store sees an extremely high traffic volume, causing parking shortages within the underground garage. Employee parking is often overfilled, and team members are left searching for open spaces, costing them valuable time and gas while adding to congestion. To alleviate this unnecessary inconvenience, Park Assist offered Whole Foods the ideal solution to help accommodate and elevate its guest and team member experience.

Park Assist’s camera-based M4 PGS and exterior wayfinding signage remove all confusion from the parking journey by clearly guiding visitors from beginning to end. The exterior signs, continuously updated with real-time data, indicate the number of available spaces within each area of the facility, and enable parkers to determine the best parking location at any given moment. From there, the M4 smart-sensor system goes a step further and specifies whether parking bays are available or occupied using color-coded LED lights, so there is no more guessing.

Additionally, Park Assist’s custom mobile Park App allows Whole Foods’ team members to find open spaces and decide where to park before heading to work. Because there are several different locations designated for team member parking, the ability to predict availability before arriving is key to guaranteeing a hassle-free, no-time-wasted, employee parking experience.

“Our team is really pleased to work with Whole Foods Market, in Austin, Texas, where they started. Park Assist’s M4 technology will not only make employee parking quicker and easier, but it will also help reduce parking challenges and traffic congestion in a busy, growing downtown location.” Said Jeff Sparrow, Regional Account Manager.

The installation is set to go live by the end of 2020.

Our patented technology helps customers effortlessly find parking spaces in real-time as well as find their cars when they return.

Tattile contributes smart camera technology to Weight in Motion System on new Genova Bridge

September 09, 2020

 

 

 

Tattile contributes smart camera technology to Weight in Motion System on new Genova Bridge

 

 

 

The collapse of the Morandi Bridge in Genova as a major Italian strategic transport line on 14 August 2018 which caused 43 victims will remain in the memory of the Italian people. As such, it can be taken as a symbol for the strength of the Italian nation that in less than two years after the disaster the newly constructed viaduct was inaugurated in Genova on 3 August 2020. Despite the extremely ambitious construction period one lesson learned from the catastrophe was to massively invest in the static surveillance of the new infrastructure. The old viaduct was already equipped with basic motion sensors under the road deck which detected movement of the deck. However, these sensors were not able to trace back the causes of the movements.

 

As a consequence, the constructors of the newly erected San Giorgio Bridge in Genova decided to install a much more comprehensive system of structural monitoring which provides a constant and complete picture on what happens on and with the infrastructure. The entire structural monitoring system now includes not only sensors under the platform to detect movements. In addition, four Tattile Vega Basic cameras are mounted above the bridge to monitor the traffic flow and detect license plates. These Tattile cameras are connected to a Weight in Motion System designed by iWIM which detects and records the weight of the axles and the gross weight of the vehicles as they pass over a sensor integrated in durable steel plates installed on the road surface of the viaduct. All the data generated from the sensors and cameras is sent to a central server enabling a clear picture of what happens on the bridge at any time. By integrating Weigh in Motion technology with the combination of Tattile Vega Basic cameras on the new San Giorgio it is now possible to correlate structural deformations to the weight that weighs on the infrastructure; and to trace the weight load caused by individual vehicles crossing it. As such the combination of sensors and smart cameras acts as an early warning system and facilitates management and planning of interventions in the stability of the infrastructure as well as preserving investments such as repaving the asphalt.

ParkMobile App Hits the 20 Million User Milestone

 

 

Despite COVID-19 impacts on the parking industry, ParkMobile continues to rapidly grow its user base and expand into new cities.

 

 

Atlanta, GA – September 9, 2020 – ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced today that the company has reached the 20 million user milestone.

Additionally, ParkMobile’s strong business growth has landed the company on the Inc. 5000 list, recognizing the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S, for the past three years.

 

This year has been challenging for ParkMobile, as COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the parking industry.

Since the beginning of the year, ParkMobile has launched in over 50 new locations including Allentown, PA, Atlantic City, NJ, Birmingham, AL, Boca Raton, FL, Colorado Springs, CO, Lake George, NY, Little Rock, AR, and Rockville, MD. The company has also introduced service at several large universities including the University of Alabama, the University of Georgia, Louisiana State University, Mississippi State University, and the University of Wisconsin.

 

“Twenty million is a big milestone for our company, and I want to congratulate all of our employees for helping us get here,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “We have come a long way in the past twelve years, and I feel like we are just hitting our stride. The future is very bright for ParkMobile.”

KERBSIDE TECHNOLOGY LEADER APPYWAY LAUNCHES £20M SERIES B FUNDING ROUND  

September 08, 2020

 

 

 

 

KERBSIDE TECHNOLOGY LEADER APPYWAY LAUNCHES £20M SERIES B FUNDING ROUND  

 

 

New funding will support organic growth, strategic acquisitions, further technological investment and international scalability 

 

 

Existing blue-chip investors include Hyundai Motor Company, Sumitomo Corporation  

and Aviva Ventures 

 

 

UK mobility market worth billions, global market expected to rise to £256 billion by 2025 

 

 

 

LONDON – 7th September 2020: AppyWay, the leading kerbside management and smart parking technology firm, today announces the launch of its £20 million Series B funding round. This will be used to support organic growth of the platform, strategic acquisitions, further technological investment and international scalability.

 

AppyWay is helping to digitise and integrate what is a highly fragmented, but high potential, market for mobility. In the UK, the government has invested well over £200 million into connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV) research and development since 2014, as well as several billion pounds into infrastructure investment for electric vehicles. In the UK, the mobility market is already valued in the billions of pounds, and across the world is predicted to be worth around £256 billion by 2025. The global connected vehicle data sector is set to be worth around US$450 billion by 2030, with the value of the global MaaS market exceeding £1 trillion.

 

AppyWay offers the most advanced platform of accurate, standardised data, APIs and tools for smart kerbside management in the world. It does this through effectively digitising the kerb, utilising IoT sensors to establish robust kerbside demand data, further enriching this via a wide range of sources such as payment operators, navigation and traffic solutions, mobility and last mile operators, mobile as a service (MaaS) apps, electric vehicle and infrastructure apps, plus a variety of other tools.

 

Through one Mobility API, AppyWay’s proposition helps to rejuvenate high streets by addressing parking difficulties, easing congestion, reducing pollution and improving air quality to create smarter, cleaner, efficient cities, more important than ever as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It also helps raise safety standards and enables kerbside compliance for drivers, fleets, and CAVs.

 

Among the organisations that will benefit most from AppyWay’s platform are councils. In the UK, 418 councils spend around £1 billion a year operating parking services1, while the cost of managing kerb regulation runs to about £126 million a year2. AppyWay helps councils more effectively utilise parking space, integrate payments and implement local traffic regulations. Councils already working with AppyWay include Milton Keynes, Cambridgeshire, Portsmouth, Harrogate, Coventry, Southwark, Cornwall, Dorset and more.

 

Ordinary drivers, fleets and logistics firms also gain advantages from AppyWay’s platform. Drivers in the UK waste an average of four days a year looking for a parking space3 and their parking fines come to around £1.2 billion a year4. Overall, the loss to the UK economy is about £6.9 billion a year5. Fleet and logistics firms such as Safo and Domex, and transport bodies such as TfWM are already using AppyWay’s platform to innovate their services and operations.

 

As part of its organic growth, AppyWay plans to invest in data capture and improving parking yield. It will also put money into data as a service (DaaS) for mobility service providers and vehicle original equipment manufacturers. Its broader strategy around acquisitions is to accelerate city adoption and expand product functionality.

 

The new funding will build on the £10.8 million raised to date, including a £7.6 million Series A round that drew in blue-chip investors including Sumitomo Corporation, Hyundai Motor Company and Aviva Ventures, West Hill Capital and Breed Reply. These funds were used to grow AppyWay’s world class mobility team, expand its Sales and Marketing functions, and accelerate new product and IP development.

 

Founded by Dan Hubert in 2013, AppyWay began mapping all of Greater London’s restricted road network in high definition, up to an accuracy of three centimetres. It now hosts the largest dataset of the UK’s kerbside restrictions which is aligned with the recently announced data standard by the Alliance of Parking Data Standards (APDS).

 

The fund-raising is being managed by Cavendish Corporate Finance.

 

Dan Hubert, CEO and Founder of AppyWay, said: “We’re thrilled to announce this funding round, which will help us move further towards our goal of helping local authorities and businesses unlock the potential of their kerbs. Whether it is residents, drivers, businesses and councils, all stand to benefit from the mobility revolution that is underway.

 

Under-utilised on and off-street parking, along with outdated and inefficient processes and technology with high operating costs are features of many cities and towns across the UK. Councils are missing out on fair, effective and efficient revenue generation, along with the opportunity to reduce congestion and air pollution. A different approach is clearly needed if zero carbon targets are to be met and cities are to have the necessary infrastructure for electric and autonomous vehicles.”

 

Phil Smith, Non-Executive Chairman of AppyWay and ex-Cisco UK and Ireland CEO, said: “By transforming the parking experience, we believe you can transform the entire driving experience. Easy parking saves time and reduces stress, so it’s good for our well-being. That’s what we are able to provide. AppyWay is at the forefront of digitising and integrating the mobility market as well as helping to deliver the cleaner, smarter more efficient cities on which so much of our future economic prosperity depends.”

 

Jon Edirmanasinghe, Partner, Cavendish Corporate Finance, said: “AppyWay helps pave the way for a new era of smart cities through digital infrastructure and is led by a world class management team. The business occupies a unique market position by utilising IoT, alongside a wide and established partner network, to enable seamless end-to-end journeys for drivers of today and connected cities of the future. The business has built a significant sales pipeline and Series B funds will enable it to continue building on the strong commercial traction it has already achieved.”
