Gatubolaget, one of the largest rental actors and purchasers of environmentally adapted cars together with WESTMA and Pilotfish now takes a big leap forwards and connects parts of their vehicle fleet using a wireless link. The aim is to benefit the environment and to make the usage more efficient. Gatubolaget will use the system for their carsharing and other in vehicle based services such as alco-lock and the measuring of environmental data.

”In 2003, the Gothenburg municipality set a target to reach 90 % of the municipal light
vehicles in 2008, we will reach that target, but it is not enough. We will have to use the
vehicles in a more intelligent way in order to reduce our environmental impacts” says Ove
Erikson, head of business area from Gatubolaget.

”The agreement with Pilotfish encompass the usage of Pilotfish® Miveo which is a platform
that is used in order to deliver services to vehicles.” Ove Erikson, Gatubolaget continues
We asked for a system that makes it possible to add services subsequently and that will
minimize the installations- and maintenance costs. Pilotfish Networks AB supports us with
the system and we, at Gatubolaget, will handle the customer contact and the daily
operations, we look forwards to seeing what the collaboration could bring us.”
Per Lanevik from Pilotfish Networks AB underlines the importance of the collaboration with
Gatubolaget. ”We are extremely proud that Gatubolaget who are one of the leading and
largest vehicle actors chose us for this collaboration.”
