Plaine Commune near Paris has 550 specialists who operate and maintain 90 cleaning vehicles in an area covering 47.4 km². Bucher Connect is the ideal solution for managing the vehicle fleet efficiently in every respect, especially on this scale. The fully automated data collection in real time and the communication channel with experts such as Roland Fröhlich are key to this. The goal: to optimise the efficiency of Plaine Commune’s fleet and reduce its ecological footprint.

“With the help of Bucher Connect, Plaine Commune can track the use of its vehicles in real time, adjust routes, plan maintenance precisely and thus reduce its environmental footprint.”

“The ongoing monitoring and optimisation of operations improves the fleet’s energy balance by around 1 tonne of CO2 per year and vehicle.”

“In summer 2024, the Olympic Games will be held in Paris, largely in the Plaine Commune area. With Bucher Connect, Plaine Commune will be well equipped to support this global event in an efficient manner whilst minimising environmental impact.”

Bucher Municipal is currently examining the potential of artificial intelligence and algorithms for municipal vehicles. The focus is on developments such as live roadmaps, real-time rec­om­men­da­tions in the vehicle cockpit or even more economical driving, but ultimately also fully autonomous solutions.

The aim is to enable cities and mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties to carry out their tasks in an even more energy and cost-efficient manner.
