To make transport for coaches, VIPs and athletes safer and more efficient, the UK’s largest bus and coach manufacturer has installed software by Traffilog in their public service vehicles. Traffilog, an Israel-based telematics provider, provides solutions that improve safety, comfort and efficiency. Software built into cars and buses have the capacity to detect dangerous driving and mechanical failures. It also allows public authorities to monitor vehicles remotely, thus improving security around major events such as the Olympic Games. The Traffilog system also uses the vehicle and fuel more efficiently, reducing fuel consumption and maintenance costs in addition to increasing security. To learn more about Traffilog, visit their website and read MarketWatch’s report on their use in the 2012 Olympic Games. Traffilog is not the only innovation from Israel focusing on increasing security around public events. The Homeland Security Conference Israel in November in Tel Aviv will showcase similar innovations in homeland security by Israeli companies. The conference also offers professionals a chance to discuss strategies and best practices in homeland security, especially focusing on security in a major city or during an event.
