Vauxhall Motors launch new Insignia Grand Sport using real-time traffic data to reach motorists with digital OOH campaign

Posterscope and Carat have launched a dynamic, digital OOH campaign for Vauxhall Motors as part of a nationwide campaign to launch the company’s new flagship vehicle, the new Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport.
The campaign launches this week and uses real-time traffic data to deliver contextual ads to motorists stuck in traffic jams. Whenever car-speeds go below the appropriate threshold, tailored creative executions are deployed to highlight the innovative range of technology solutions available in the new Vauxhall Insignia. More generic creative will play-out when car flow is moving normally. Liveposter will create poster templates to automate the scheduling of copy changes which will be pre-agreed and supplied via a content matrix.
Using the Liveposter platform and traffic data supplied by INRIX Traffic, the campaign will be seen on 16 digital 48 sheet sites and 10 large digital format screens on key arterial routes in Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Bristol and London until the end of the month.
Andy Biernacki, Head of Brand at Vauxhall Motors, said: “With all the innovative game changing tech in the new Insignia, we wanted to ensure that our media placements leverage the same data capabilities and connectivity to highlight the car’s premium features in an engaging way for our audience.”
Michael Bartrop, senior client manager, at Posterscope, added: “This is first time we’ve delivered a national level campaign triggered by traffic data. By delivering this tailored content in real-time, in reaction to traffic behaviour, we are able to reach Vauxhall’s target audience with the right messages, in the right place, at the right time to capture their attention.”
The campaign is supported by static 48 sheet formats across the UK, and by TV, digital paid social and print advertising.  Creative is by McCann and MRM.

Vauxhall uses real-time temperature data to drive new dynamic digital outdoor campaign for ‘A-Z of Corsa’

A real-time DOOH campaign launched on the 16th February for the new Vauxhall Corsa. The campaign – which is the first of its kind for the automotive sector – uses live weather data to trigger special ad creative dependent on the temperature, promoting the new Corsa’s heated product features.
Planned by Posterscope and Carat, the campaign has been designed to target two specific audiences using ROUTE data. When the temperature is low enough, each audience is targeted with creative about the product features that are most likely to interest them.
The bold all-new Corsa campaign ‘A-Z of Corsa’ is currently displaying ads for the new Corsa across a network of digital screens using the Liveposter platform, showing on more than 500 sites nationwide, (including key cities London, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow) across shopping centres, cinema, roadside and the London Underground. From today, whenever the temperature drops below 5°C, the creative will switch to highlight the new Corsa’s weather-related product features, such as the heated windscreen, the heated seats and the heated steering wheel.
The ‘A to Z of Corsa’, is an affectionate nod and rebellious take on the Vauxhall Corsa, which has sold over 1.8 million vehicles in its 22 years on the road.  The ‘A to Z of Corsa’ accelerates viewers through a whirlwind of alphabetic themed scenes.  Illustrating everyday British life and driving scenarios from boxers, cricket and dogs, to quiffs, roundabouts, snogging and tea, the ad follows people through their own personal road trips. The soundtrack, ‘There’s a beast and we all feed it’, by Jake Bugg is used across the campaign.
Chris Hawken, Vauxhall brand marketing director, said: “This is the first time General Motors has implemented a dynamic DOOH campaign. Real-time temperature data enables us to bring some of the new Corsa’s best features to life in a way that will help consumers better identify with the creative. Posterscope and Liveposter have helped us to implement a campaign that reacts to the world around it in a way that will help us to better engage our target audience with an unforgettable out-of-home experience.”
Glen Wilson, managing director at Posterscope, said: “DOOH works best when it’s made to work as hard as possible. By delivering content in real-time, this new Corsa campaign is enabling General Motors to reach its target audience via DOOH in what we call ‘right-time’. The temperature-dependant creative enables them to deliver exactly the right message to the right individual at exactly the right time.”
