HAAS Alert and Monotch announce digital infrastructure partnership

Dutch roads will become safer and more connected thanks to a new partnership between Monotch and HAAS Alert, which will deliver in-car safety messages from Monotch’s TLEX-based national UDAP (Urban Data Access Platform) system to vehicles on HAAS Alert’s Safety Cloud® digital alerting platform, including Stellantis vehicles.  

HAAS Alert, a Chicago-based automotive technology developer, announced the formal launch of its Safety Cloud® platform in Europe in November last year. Safety Cloud is the largest commercially deployed digital alerting and connected vehicle service in North America, connecting millions of vehicles on the road to emergency vehicles, work zones, and other emergency and alerting assets. Safety Cloud enables automakers to connect consumer vehicles directly to these assets, making them capable of receiving and displaying in-vehicle EVA (Emergency Vehicle Alert) notifications (called digital alerts) through in-vehicle displays. The service is already fully deployed in North America by Stellantis, delivering digital alerts to millions of vehicles on the road, including 2018-and-newer Jeep®, Dodge, RAM, and Chrysler vehicles.

Through the newly announced partnership between HAAS Alert and Monotch, information in Monotch’s UDAP system will now be shared with Safety Cloud, enhancing the service with real-time data from the Dutch digital mobility platform that serves as a national ecosystem of digital infrastructure, agencies, and road users where billions of status and safety messages are exchanged daily.

While EVA messages in the Netherlands have been in place since July 2022, this new integration will make it possible for vehicle owners to receive these alerts directly in their dashboards or centerstack displays without needing a third-party application.

Integrating Safety Cloud in the TLEX-based production systems also enables federation into neighboring jurisdictions. For clients who wish to do so, HAAS Alert may benefit from real-time information in other northern European countries. This integration also addresses cross-regional differences while minimizing integration and effort.
