Partnership with Monotch
Monotch and Be-Mobile have a partnership agreement for realising and upscaling C-ITS services in the Netherlands, Flanders, France and the rest of Europe. With this collaboration, both parties underline the importance of a fully operational C-ITS ecosystem, which provides many benefits such as improving traffic flows and road safety, prioritising road users and reducing emissions. Together, they can serve the entire mobility ecosystem and offer cities, road authorities, and road users excellent opportunities to deploy C-ITS services to their fullest potential.
By teaming up for the Dutch, Flemish and French markets, Monotch and Be-Mobile can further promote the benefits of V2X platforms. Monotch provides data flows via the TLEX I2V platform by connecting traffic light controllers and other roadside equipment to service providers, the automotive industry, road authorities, emergency services and ultimately, road users. TLEX perfectly matches Be-Mobile’s C-ITS platform that lets drivers instantaneously receive local traffic information and anticipate traffic conditions beyond the windshield and has gained much knowledge about C-ITS use case aggregation. Time-to-red, time-to-green, informing road users about hazardous situations, and traffic light priority, to name but a few.
In addition, Monotch is also part of the Be-Mobile consortium for the Mobilidata project in Flanders. Monotch assists Be-Mobile in Mobilidata with the C-ITS message exchange between the various stakeholders in the C-ITS ecosystem. The Traffic Live Exchange (TLEX) platform also provides data exchange with traffic lights.
