Volvo secures order for 1,400 telematics systems for buses in Brazil

ITS4mobility is Volvo Buses' advanced technological platform that supports the bus operators' control of bus operations.

The system enables traffic controllers to monitor all of the buses in real-time, to see where they are and their progress in relation to the timetables.

Traffic controllers can also maintain constant contact with drivers via text messages.

The system makes it easier to maintain timetables and to react quickly to disruptions to bus traffic.

ITS4mobility also provides passengers with information. Electronic boards at bus stops display when the next bus will depart, and electronic boards and audio announcements on the buses inform passengers about the next stop.

The ITS4mobility system can be used for all types of buses irrespective of manufacturer. In fact, none of the systems covered by this order are destined for Volvo-manufactured buses – clear evidence, says Per Gabell, head of Volvo Buses in Latin America, that Volvo is no longer primarily a vehicle manufacturer, but a supplier of transport solutions.
