About PTOLEMUS Consulting Group

Created in 2008, PTOLEMUS Consulting Group is the first strategy consulting & market research firm entirely focused on augmented mobility and automation.

It was named after Ptolemy, the Greek geographer who, in the 2nd century, collected and united multiple fragments into the first real world map. Like Ptolemy, our firm helps all mobility stakeholders navigate in an increasingly fast changing mobility ecosystem.

With our clients, we are shaping the future of mobility and automation

Mobility is being augmented with connectivity and positioning but also multiple new fields that enrich our trips or make them more efficient: vehicle data, user data, context data, etc.

PTOLEMUS combines deep expertise of mobility topics with strategy making and market analysis capabilities. Through more than 130 consulting assignments, we have also proven our ability to help our clients shape future mobility.
