KDDI America and Flect bring their real-time vehicle management system “Cariot” to America

KDDI America, Inc. December 05, 2018

KDDI America, Inc. and Flect Co. (HQ: Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo; President: Koji Kurokawa; hereafter “Flect”) will jointly deploy the real-time vehicle management solution “Cariot”(*) to customers in America.


Cariot (a combination of “Car” and “IoT”), is a real-time vehicle management service aimed at corporate customers, in which a tracking device is inserted into a vehicle, allowing the vehicle to be tracked on the Internet for its speed, distance traveled, engine RPM, fuel consumption, main power voltage, and other digital data. Through visualization of vehicle data, Cariot allows customers to improve their compliance with laws and regulations and the safety of their driving operations, cut costs and improve business efficiency. Additionally, using the globally-oriented service Air SIM by KDDI group company SORACOM, Inc. (HQ: Setagaya Ward, Tokyo; President: Ken Tamagawa; hereafter “SORACOM”), even when a tracked vehicle crosses national borders, it can continue to be monitored through automatic roaming capability.

Utilizing KDDI’s global deployment strength, KDDI America will act as seller for Cariot in America, offering proposals to potential customers for service introduction and providing support. We will help companies with vehicles in America to solve the issues that face their businesses through global telematics and fleet management via Cariot.

As KDDI Group works to achieve its goal of integrating telecommunications and life design, it strives to be a company that is always offering exciting new ideas. We provide powerful support for the global business operations of our client companies, creating new customer experience value.
