Telematics technology powers London to Paris Tower to Tower Challenge

A total of 17 cyclists, five support vehicles and five support drivers took part in the challenge, setting off from the tower of London on 3 July 2015, en route to the Eiffel tower in Paris.  The four-day journey took the team through South East England, North East France and into the capital city.  Each day, the team travelled over 80 miles and endured temperatures of over 30°C. 

The cycle team comprised waste management professionals, with some returning to cycling after a 30-year absence.   

The support vehicles were fitted with vehicle telematics from CMS SupaTrak and via the SupaTrak system, supporters could view the real-time location of the team and live camera feeds, provided by Vision Techniques VT Live cameras.
