CORRECTING and REPLACING Connected Objects: a Global Ambition at Total
Please replace the release dated July 10, 2018 with the following corrected version due to multiple revisions.
The corrected release reads:
CONNECTED OBJECTS: A GLOBAL AMBITION AT TOTAL
Total has joined forces with Sigfox, the world’s leading IoT connectivity service, to deploy a solution designed to optimise rolling stock and help manage trailer fleets.
What’s the solution?
Created by transporters, for transporters, Where’s my Trailer? is an innovative new way to improve how trailer fleets are used and kept secure.
The solution works by installing a box on the trailer, to identify any equipment that is underused or has been lost or stolen.
The solution was developed by Total Marketing France through its subsidiary Stela and has been in test phase for a year with the company’s transporter customers.
“Sigfox technology, together with our proximity to Freight and Logistics, has given us the opportunity to offer a reliable and efficient way of geolocalising rolling stock throughout Europe,” explains Benoît Luc, Director of Total’s European Marketing & Services Department.
“We are delighted with how the Total project has developed,” adds Patrick Cason, Managing Director of Sigfox France. “The significant size of the Total group has in no way hindered our progress, in fact quite the opposite. We have seen how its full force can really benefit innovation. The group knows how to listen to its customers, how to think about their experience as users, and how to commit to providing innovative services. Our teams worked together very easily because Total both responds and makes decisions promptly.”
How it works
The boxes are self-powered and very easy to install on the trailer. They communicate using Sigfox technology, which is able to provide a low bandwidth connection network at a very low cost.
Where’s my Trailer? localises any stationery trailers and allows users to set up notifications. Messages are displayed on the secure customer portal, which can be accessed from the websites stela.fr and as24.com,and are compatible with all digital devices.
Maps and dashboards provide information on:
- Trailers and a track record of inactive periods
- Tractor-trailer pairing – drop-and-hook detection
- Maintenance – vehicle safety inspection, repairs
- Unauthorised movement during time periods can be configured by the customer
How to access the service
Where’s My Trailer? is easy to deploy and use, and is very competitively priced on the transport market.
This solution marks the end of high costs and complex systems: benefiting from Sigfox’s services and international network, this disruptive solution both significantly reduces costs and simplifies the system’s implementation, unlike current solutions that are complex to deploy.
It will be available from July 9, 2018, first in France and then in Europe, through Stela and AS24. There will also be a hotline open 5 days a week, to help customers install their boxes, use the secure portal, and configure their options. Where’s my Trailer? is free to download – the only requirement is to purchase a subscription.
The solution is scalable and will soon include new features.

Greene Tweed Receives Patent for Rapid Gas Decompression-Resistant Fluoroelastomers and Molded Articles24.10.2018 00:00 | Tiedote
The U.S. Patent Office has awarded Greene Tweed Patent Number 10,011,690 for Rapid Gas Decompression-Resistant Fluoroelastomer Compositions and Molded Articles. The innovative elastomer technology was developed by a team that included inventor Ron Campbell, PhD, Principal Scientist and Technology Leader for Elastomers in Greene Tweed’s Advanced Technology Group, to provide a competitive advantage in the Energy market and expand technology protected under a previous patent. Rapid gas decompression (RGD) often occurs when high-pressure gas molecules migrate into an elastomer at a compressed state. When the pressure surrounding the elastomer is suddenly released, the compressed gas inside the elastomer tries to expand and exit the elastomer, thus causing RGD (also known as explosive decompression). Most elastomers experience severe blistering or cracking when the force of these expanding gases overcome the strength of the surrounding material; however, materials engineered to withstand RG
Morinaga Milk Study Suggests Infant-Type Human-Residential Bifidobacteria May Benefit Infant Health by Improving Digestion of Peptides in Milk and Grains23.10.2018 21:00 | Tiedote
Scientists at Morinaga Milk Industry Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:2264) have long theorized that Human-Residential Bifidobacteria (HRB) are superior to non-Human-Residential Bifidobacteria (non-HRB) in promoting good health outcomes. The results of a new study strengthen the evidence for this theory, showing that infant-type HRB may be able to break down incompletely digested peptides in the infants’ gastrointestinal systems and thus contribute to their overall health. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20181023005015/en/ Fig 1. Food-derived opioid peptides are potential risk factors for human health (Graphic: Business Wire) Human-Residential Bifidobacteria for Humans Morinaga Milk has been conducting research on bifidobacteria for many years, and studies over the past decades have shown that bifidobacteria play a vital role in various aspects of human health. There are two major groups of bifidobacteria: Human-Residential Bif
myPOS Founder Christo Georgiev Announces Two Upcoming myPOS Stores in Barcelona and Paris23.10.2018 19:22 | Tiedote
Christo Georgiev, fintech entrepreneur and founder of myPOS, has confirmed his intention to open two new flagship stores in major European cities by the end of the year. The opening is part of an initiative to bring the product closer to potential customers, giving them a hands-on experience and a live demonstration of what myPOS has to offer. The two new stores will be opened in Barcelona, Spain and Paris, France – two of the most important markets for myPOS. “Our Spanish and French customers have always placed a tremendous amount of trust in us, and we in turn have worked hard to justify it,” Georgiev says. “Opening physical locations in Barcelona and Paris is an extension of that relationship. It’s important to test a product with your own hands before you choose to trust it, and if that’s true for TVs and phones why can’t it apply to POS terminals?” The Barcelona store will open as soon as November, followed shortly by the Paris one before the end of the year. myPOS has already ope
