The award recognises companies from all sectors which implemented the most creative and effective solutions using IoT and telematics technologies. This year saw projects from no less than 24 countries compete for the “project of the year” title, with the winners delivering efficiency and cash savings measured in millions of dollars.
The IoT project of the year winners were selected by an international jury of internet of things (IoT) experts, assessing entries in categories ranging from cold chain transportation and long-haul shipping to agriculture and public safety. The IoT project of the year award is software and hardware agnostic, and open to any company.
The winning projects show a wide array of business solutions, from reducing waiting times in cold-chain management in UAE, to tracking the railway construction wagons in Switzerland preventing cargo and vehicle theft in Mexico or Thailand, and reducing fuel consumption by 30%-50% for fleets in Central Asia, South America and Africa, optimising staff transportation and associated costs in Sri Lanka, developing GPS tracking in agriculture in Israel or enabling driver safety monitoring in remote areas with severe weather conditions in the Arctic.
The IoT project of the year award demonstrates how fast IoT and telematics are developing and shows how innovative applications change not only a specific business, but also our everyday lives.
Aliaksandr Kuushynau, head of Wialon, Gurtam said,“Telematics today is becoming embedded into an increasing number of industries across the globe. The flexibility of the technology means solutions are limited only by users’ creativity.
“And the IoT project of the year contest highlights the best industry solutions that have been delivered over the past year – inspiring businesses to become more efficient through IoT.”Aliaksandr Kuushynau

Andrei Liatsetski, jury chairman, and head of project implementation, Wialon, said, “Just looking at the logistics sector, this technology solves problems that cannot be addressed any other way. Businesses in this industry are exposed to numerous risks such as theft of vehicles, cargo and fuel and these risks can be monitored and mitigated using telematics and IoT technology.”
“IoT also allows fleet managers to reduce the cost of unplanned maintenance by monitoring all aspects of a vehicle’s performance to ensure remedies are in place before any malfunction occurs.”
