Stellantis has announced the launch of MyTasks, a tool for commercial fleet managers that enables real-time communication, task assignment, and status updates with drivers in the field via the vehicle’s built-in infotainment unit.

MyTasks provides benefits to both drivers and fleet managers. It allows drivers to avoid using their cell phone, reducing distractions while behind the wheel. Fleet managers do not need aftermarket accessories, which enhances efficiency and safety.

How MyTasks Works for Fleet Managers and Drivers

The application is a patented interface between fleet manager and driver, leveraging over-the-air capability and updates.

Through an over-the-air update, MyTasks will also be available on existing Stellantis vehicles in the field today equipped with compatible communication technology and infotainment units.

MyTasks enables fleet managers or dispatchers to assign tasks or change schedules of individual drivers via an online portal. Vehicle drivers then get an instant notification of assignments via a pop-up message in the vehicle’s infotainment screen.

The connected system allows drivers to send their assigned destination to the vehicle’s navigation system for routing and provides dispatchers the status of each task.

“A breakthrough tool like MyTasks is the result of when we put our customers’ needs above all else,” Stellantis Chief Software Officer Yves Bonnefont said. “We know that our B2B customers value efficiency and safety for their drivers and their fleets and we are using the capabilities built into our vehicles to cut down on the potential distractions and deliver key information to make their job easier.”

How to Gain Access to MyTasks

Free2move will add MyTasks to its commercial offer, completing the already existing business solutions such as Preventive Maintenance and Connect Fleet.

The service can also be made available via API integration to all B2B partners that already have a tool to plan daily fleet activities.

Pro One, the Stellantis Commercial Vehicles Business Unit, will be the first to offer this technology.

MyTasks will be available in the first half of this year in Europe on compact and mid-size vans from the Citroën, FIAT Professional, Opel, Peugeot and Vauxhall brands.

Availability will expand by the end of this year to large vans and compatible passenger cars in Europe and commercial vehicles in North America.

Deploying advanced technology geared toward advancing vehicle safety and keeping drivers informed is an element of Stellantis’ commitment in the Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan to offer cutting-edge mobility.

Stellantis is also developing STLA Brain, STLA SmartCockpit, and STLA AutoDrive, three all-new technology platforms that will be deployed starting in 2024.
