Digitalization has opened and continues to open completely new ways for monitoring and getting efficiencies from mobile objects and assets. Autonomous vehicles, location based services, asset and fleet tracking and management – all offer opportunities on a global scale. For example, according to Market Research Future, the global fleet management market is expected to grow at a CAGR rate of 22% in the period 2018-2023. Transparency Market Research predicts that asset tracking and management grows CAGR at the rate of 13% in the period 2018-2026.
