The burgeoning internet of things is heading for automotive as surely as night follows day, with vehicle manufacturers rushing to deliver exciting new services thanks to their latest generation of connected cars.

For the world of fleet management, mobility is a much-discussed concept, but the killer challenge for most is how to deliver what the customer wants, i.e. seamless switching between different modes of transport, without drowning in crazy levels of extra admin behind the scenes.
