Wialon, an IoT and fleet management platform developed by European software company Gurtam, has launched the IoT Project of the Year 2024 competition.

This global competition aims to recognise and showcase the most innovative fleet and IoT projects worldwide.

IoT project of the year is a competition for companies implementing projects using telematics and IoT technologies. Wialon organises the awards to promote the use of modern tools to solve various business problems across key industries. It also aims to create a platform for companies worldwide to showcase and exchange ideas, recognise contributions in the telematics field, and share their achievements.

Service providers of any scale, or industry who have implemented projects for clients in fleet management using telematics and IoT technologies from the beginning of 2023 to April 30, 2024, are invited to submit their projects (iot-project.com). Entries are free and can be submitted online until August 2, 2024.

The competition’s panel of judges comprises global industry experts in IoT and telematics, who will evaluate entries based on criteria such as scalability, innovation, effectiveness and practicability. Up to 40 finalists will be announced on September 19, 2024, with winners revealed at an awards ceremony on October 13, 2024, in Dubai.

Awards for the twelve IoT Project of the Year winners include publicity and promotion within the global IoT and telematics ecosystem, as well as $1000 prizes for marketing campaigns for each of the winners. Additionally, the four top winners will receive the invitation to exhibit at the Wialon IoT Zone, or up to $2000 travel expenses, in any qualifying Wialon industry event worldwide.

This year marks the fourth edition of the global contest. Previous winners have included a diverse range of IoT applications in cold-chain transportation, AI-based video telematics in long-haul shipping, fuel consumption and fleet management applications in construction, public transport management, farming, route emergency alert systems in cargo transportation in the Arctic, fleet monitoring in the sub-Saharan region, or endangered species monitoring.

“B2B tech companies often fly under the radar in terms of public awareness, so recognition by peers is incredibly valuable, especially in a specialised industry such as IoT and telematics,” said Andrei Liatsetski, head of project implementation at Wialon. “This year’s IoT project of the year competition aims to bring again into the spotlight the best minds and the most effective projects in our industry, and we place a strong emphasis on diversity. We understand that great results and innovations can be achieved just as well in projects for a small construction company with 50 vehicles, for example, or a big taxi fleet with 1000 cars. All innovative projects and experts deserve industry-wide recognition, and that’s what the Wialon IoT project of the year global competition is about.”
