Abellio signs three-year framework deal with 21st Century Fleet Systems

Abellio has committed to continue working with 21st Century Fleet Systems, a Journeo company, for a further three years following the renewal of a framework agreement.

The deal will see Abellio become one of the first London operators to benefit from 4G video transfer.

Under the contract, 21st Century will continue to provide CCTV and associated equipment on all new Abellio buses, along with those transferred into their fleet through tendering in London.

In addition, approximately 200 vehicles already installed with the Journeo EDGE internet of things (IoT) gateway will be connected into a new cloud-based Video Management System (VMS), Journeo Transit, which uses 4G video transfer.

The Journeo Transit platform also allows Abellio to connect a wide array of other systems on the bus into a central cloud server, offering real-time access to information.

Russ Singleton, Journeo chief executive, said: "We are delighted that Abellio have asked us to continue providing support services for their safety-critical video systems and supply our innovative solutions for their London bus fleet.

"Our R&D, engineering network and dedicated London support team has helped Abellio consistently achieve first-place rankings in Transport for London's (TfL) measurement of CCTV systems availability and our latest IoT systems provide further enhancements."

The Smart Transport October 2020 Conference - 'Connecting policy to solutions'

Smart Transport’s autumn conference will be held virtually across three days in October to help showcase solutions to government policy in the fast moving UK transport sector.

The bi-annual event was due to take place at etc. venues Manchester Piccadilly this October, but as a result of the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, Smart Transport has taken the decision to hold an online event instead on October 20, 21 and 22.

Smart Transport editor-in-chief Stephen Briers said: "We may have been prevented from staging the 'real' event this year, but our Virtual Smart Transport Conference will be a wonderful alternative, offering delegates, exhibitors and sponsors many of the benefits and features they love most over the three days in October.

"Our stunning digital event platform will put delegates right in the room, replicating the familiar surroundings of the conventional conference with seminars, live Q&A, polls, interactive chats and numerous network opportunities."

All speakers for the October dates will present virtually using Smart Transport’s digital event platform.

There will also be areas for delegates to network and collaborate with other senior smart transport experts on the practical steps needed for private sector solutions to turn the Government’s vision into reality.

The diverse range of private sector leaders from the intelligent transport industry will share their passion and vision to bring the concept of ‘mobility for all’ to life during the three day virtual event, including exploring how Covid-19 has greatly impacted all modes of travel.

There will also be virtual stands for all the event partners for delegates to interact with on each day of the event.

Smart Transport would like to thank its headline strategic partners for their support with this virtual event including ABB, AECOM, Centrica, DAF Trucks, Enterprise, FedEx, Geotab, Liberty Global, Macquarie, PJA, Raleigh, Renault and Worldline.
