Mobility is referred to the ‘’movement’’ of vehicles, goods, people, etc and their interaction with the end user. Smart mobility solutions help automotive companies, recreational vehicles, transport and transit companies digitize the experience.
Making mobility smarter for a sustainable future
Opportunities for new market segments and convergences driven by strong end-user experiences are shifting traditional products and services into entirely different business models.
Connected Autonomous Shared Electric (CASE) is turning the automotive industry upside down, while trends in micro-mobility such as intuitive or on-demand mobility are transforming mass transit and last-mile transportation. Cities are making room for increased pedestrian and micro-mobility traffic while reducing automobile capacity.
Connecting vehicles to their mobile dynamically rich environments (V2X) brings efficiency and elevated experiences. Data analytics, ML and AI solutions are driving the next phases of mobility.
Smart tech real-time tracking, electronic logging devices (ELDs), robotization and data intelligence in logistics are rapidly changing how things are made, stored, delivered and purchased. Current trends in last-mile delivery include drones and autonomous vehicles or trucks (AVs or ATs). These advances are expected to bring down fulfillment significantly, supply chain costs and timings.
Being user-centric and working at the confluence of multiple industries, we have a comprehensive vision and advantageous approach. Our Agile Transformative Teams develop custom solutions and harness sensor data to develop viable smart technologies, providing real business insights.

Some mobility client stories
Automotive and RV
We architected and implemented a comprehensive system for real-time control and monitoring of a fleet exceeding 1,000 vehicles (buses and subways). The system optimizes critical response times, ensuring efficient data transmissions. This enhanced visibility empowers the client to make informed decisions based on real-time fleet operations data.
Onboard Embedded Software Management System
Leveraging our previously developed smart fleet system, we conducted a successful beta test allowing residents to book bus rides on-demand via a mobile app. The app provides route details, payment options, and pick-up information, significantly reducing last-mile distances and substituting underutilized bus lines. This contributes to an efficient and sustainable mobility ecosystem.
Solving Last-Mile Challenges: Bus On-Demand System
In 2016, SEIDOR Opentrends pioneered developing and implementing the first OEM's app, providing an entirely new digital experience. Users could conduct basic vehicle diagnostics and schedule dealer services through their mobile devices. Technologies utilized encompass Swift, CarPlay, high availability by extending the MirrorLink app's backend architecture, Apache Tomcat, replica set in MongoDB and Oracle, and OpenCMS static content manager. Client Case
First OEM Apple CarPlay App Implementation
Developed a service network (native) app for a major carmaker, featuring AI chat functionalities to effectively engage vehicle owners and service managers. The project incorporated usability sprints targeting specific user segments and utilized technologies such as Angular JS, Java, OpenCMS, and Docker. Client Case
OEM’s After-sale Customer Interactions
Building upon our prior experience developing OEM applications for smart devices and post-sales and buying experiences, we unified the ownership experience through a single application. The backend solution collected vehicle and driver/owner data via OBD-II and the driver’s smartphone, amalgamating data from both sources. Technologies employed included iOS and Android native development, Mockups, Dongle simulation car using WebSocket, and Java for building the data configuration backend.
Unified Digital eXperience for a World’s Top Automaker
SEIDOR Opentrends developed plans for an AWS IoT Data Analytics Cloud Platform capable of processing millions of real-time signals from operating PBBs. This platform has the potential to generate new revenue streams and significantly reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) due to its modular architecture. The proposed solution is designed to remain adaptable and scalable without becoming obsolete. Client Case
IoT Data Analytics for Passenger Boarding Bridges (PBB)
We designed and developed an architecture to collect and analyze vehicle and environmental data from one of Europe's largest Low Emission Zones (LEZ). The platform, running on AWS and integrated with 3rd party data source systems, follows an SOA architecture system oriented to business logic, providing the client the flexibility to develop related services or add new applications. Backend services were developed using JAVA Spring APIs, and frontends were created using Bootstrap / React JS frameworks. Read More
