Cubic takes pole position for automotive connected software solution.

Cubic Telecom has been named the overall winner of IoT Global Awards’ Automotive, Transport, and Travel category for its innovative connected software solution, PACE.

With over 100 entries submitted across the eleven IoT categories, including Harman, Lenovo, Telstra, G&D, and Vodafone the global IoT software provider was also named a finalist in the Big Data, Cloud, and Analytics category.

Now in its third year, the prestigious awards program identifies the most innovative companies, products, and individual talent. It has quickly become an industry benchmark for excellence in IoT.

“It is an honour to be recognised among these top-class IoT technology providers, and to subsequently win such a distinguished category. This further positions Cubic as a leader in not only the IoT, sector, but also as a leading connected software solution provider, on the world stage.”

Cubic PACE for Automotive is a connected software and data analytics solution that enables automakers to ship vehicles with preconfigured software for optimum connectivity and regulatory requirements already in place for each country. PACE gives automakers complete control. It facilitates a centralised architecture and integrates different data sets which can be analysed for a wide variety of use cases to inform evidence-based decision-making.

PACE’s central integrated management system gives automakers the power to launch, customise and control digital services that can be easily scaled and aligned to global markets. Seamless software updates, live diagnostics and data collection – and the ability to ‘adopt and drop’ new features and functionality grant automakers much more flexibility, and a built-in ability to comply with fast-changing, region-specific requirements.

“In a year like no other, filled with global health, social and business challenges, it has been a huge encouragement to all of us behind the 3rd annual IoT Global Awards to see so many entries displaying a wealth of business and engineering creativity,” said Chair of the Judges, Jeremy Cowan, Editorial Director and Publisher of IoT Now.

“To the Award Winners, we salute your ideas, hard work and your applications of IoT-enabled services to improve lives worldwide. It really is that simple: You make all our lives better. In 2020 we can say for certain, that the Internet of Things has never been more important.”

Today, over 3.5 million connected vehicles are powered by the Cubic PACE for Automotive platform, across over 90 countries globally. Automotive customers include Audi, Arrival, Bentley, e.GO Mobile, Porsche, Skoda, and Volkswagen.
