Noida-based connectivity solutions provider Aeris Communications has announced a partnership with Bhubaneswar-based Omjay EV, which runs electric vehicle startup EeVe India, to power the latter’s two-wheelers with IoT solutions.
As part of the partnership, Aeris has deployed its IoT-enabled telematics solution AerTrak in both existing and upcoming EeVe vehicles to enable the startup to locate its bikes and offer real time exchange of data.
Omjay EV, which has a presence across eastern India, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Chhattisgarh, claims to have sold more than 3,000 units of Aeris powered two-wheelers between January and August 2020.
The automotive industry in India is on the verge of disruption with a high degree of innovation, Harsh Vardhan Didwania, co-founder of Omjay EV, said, adding that the startup was heavily focused on research and development to “ride into the future”.
“Aeris has been our preferred partner as their IoT portfolio allows us to offer new and advanced connected two-wheelers to our customers in India and abroad,” he said.
“Aeris is proud to have a long-term commitment with Omjay EV to offer our latest Aeris IoT solutions and navigate them through their journey of delivering market-leading connected two-wheelers. Our global expertise and deep understanding of Indian consumers has helped us to work closely with the company and make connected vehicles a reality for them,” Sameer Mahapatra, country sales head for India and SAARC region at Aeris Communications, said.
Earlier this year, Aeris launched the Smart Fleet Platform, an integrated solution that offers fleet managers the ability to incorporate vehicle data into the platform for a single view of the entire fleet. It also partnered with automotive telematics provider Omnicomm to roll out a fuel monitoring solution in India.
