KDDI is joining forces with FLECT to jointly offer Cariot real-time vehicle management services to corporate clients in Southeast Asia and the Middle East.

Cariot is a real-time vehicle management service that provides corporate clients with the ability to use the Internet to monitor digital data including vehicle speed and distance traveled, engine rpm, fuel consumption, primary electric power voltage and more.

No special installation is required for the device, which simply plugs into the vehicle cigarette lighter. The ability to make vehicle information visible enhances compliance and safety capabilities while helping cut costs and make business operations more efficient.

Using "the Global Air SIM card" provided by SORACOM, the service is capable of roaming, in which the service automatically switches from one country's systems to the next when a vehicle crosses a national border.

This is particularly useful in regions such as Southeast Asia, in which vehicles frequently pass through numerous adjacent countries and vehicle traceability has become an important issue. Numerous traffic accidents have also been caused by unsafe driving practices such as sudden starts, making employee driver education a crucial issue for companies.

As the distribution source, KDDI Singapore will begin by offering the service to Japanese corporate customers in Southeast Asia and the Middle East, and will then expand its sales effort among local firms. KDDI Singapore will also work to make the service available in as many countries and regions as possible.
