Mobile Knowledge and Comfort Transportation revolutionize the Singapore taxi experience

Mobile Knowledge Inc., a leading provider of advanced GPS and wireless communications technology for fleet telematics applications, today announced the successful installation of 3,500 state-of-the-art mobile data terminals in Singapore’s largest taxi fleet, operated by Comfort Transportation. Comfort’s entire fleet of 12,000 vehicles is now dispatched using the Mobile Knowledge system, which includes the powerful, multimedia-capable Series 6000 terminal and uses GPS-based closest vehicle dispatch to achieve significant gains in productivity, efficiency, and customer service.

The Series 6000 terminal, the latest addition to the Mobile Knowledge product set, combines an open programming platform, unparalleled processing power, integrated GPS and advanced multimedia features such as a colour touch screen display, text-to-speech, internet connectivity and compact flash memory to enable a variety of interactive services for both drivers and passengers.

Comfort has equipped 3,500 of its cabs with the new Series 6000 terminals, building on its proven success with the Mobile Knowledge system, which was deployed in 8,000 cabs several years ago and resulted in a 1000% increase in the number of jobs that could be dispatched each day.
