Innovative Solution Helps Make Getting Around Easier and Safer.
Mahindra GenZe, a leader in all-electric two-wheel transportation alternatives, uses AT&T’s Internet of Things (IoT) technology to bring the first connected scooter to the two-wheeler industry. The companies are also working with Tech Mahindra, a world leader in connected solutions helping enable GenZe’s telematics device to utilize AT&T’s network capabilities.
The GenZe 2.0 is a two-wheel vehicle built for urban commuters. It works on a CANBus network. The connected scooter uses multiple AT&T IoT products including Global SIM and AT&T Control Center to build the GenZe mobile rider solution. The GenZe Cruise–Connect System™ monitors data through a cloud–based system and governs settings through the app.
“We continue to focus on meeting the demands of today’s connected urban commuters,” said Vish Palekar, CEO, GenZe.
“GenZe is redefining urban mobility. We deliver a fun and practical commute experience by incorporating cutting edge technology, like AT&T’s IoT connectivity.”
“We’re changing how people live, work and get around. People can connect and monitor assets from almost anywhere,” said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, AT&T Industrial IoT Solutions. “Connecting these amazing 2-wheel machines is an example how we are a leader in the connected vehicle technology.”
The GenZe 2.0, designed and built in the U.S., has:
- A removable lithium-ion battery: Riders can recharge at any standard electrical outlet, for optimal freedom and ease of use.
- Smart, utilitarian design: Ample rear storage space lets riders get where they want and take all of their belongings with them. It enables device recharging in a compartment under the driver’s seat.
GenZe was founded in 2012 to develop sustainable urban transportation solutions. The GenZe 2.0 was born in Silicon Valley. It was designed, engineered and is being manufactured in Ann Arbor, Michigan, to the highest international and federal vehicle standards.
