Waterloo’s Intelligent Mechatronic Systems (IMS) has received a prestigious 2015 Ingenious Award recognizing excellence in the innovative use of information and communication technology for their DriveSync connected car platform.
The award was backed by nominations from Intel Corporation and presented by the Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC).
In 1999, IMS started out as an organization with a vision to build automotive solutions for societal improvements around safer, smarter and greener driving.
IMS’ DriveSync connected car platform was born out of this idea and today delivers connected car solutions and services, from usage-based insurance to fleet management, to road-usage charging and new driver education.
“We are honored to be named by ITAC as an Ingenious Award winner; this is an incredible recognition of IMS’ commitment and vision for safer roads and smarter driving,” said Dr. Otman Basir, CEO and Founder of IMS. “Our innovative DriveSync platform delivers compelling services for drivers on a worldwide scale and continues to innovate in new emerging spaces such as connected home and the Internet of Things.”
