Taiwan startup TMS Technologies, dedicated to operating a DataBar-MaaS (Mobility as a Service) platform integrating Taiwan's traffic data, will extend MaaS API (application programming interface) solutions to Southeast Asia in line with the government's efforts to enhance trade and tourism exchanges with regional countries, according to company sources.

TMS data manager KP Wang said that the company will first incorporate data concerning traffic events, parking lots and scenic spots in Thailand into its traffic data mart before covering similar information in more Southeast Asian countries.

The firm's president Tim Chen also disclosed that TMS' ultimate goal is to become the regional window for international digital mapping and GPS solutions providers, by providing quality traffic data to help them render high-dynamic mapping and navigation services to regional markets.

Chen continued that his company will also help businesses engaged in transportation and tourism segments develop more application service scenarios.
