Connected Cars are increasingly popular and becoming a necessity rather than a luxury. Safety features and navigational aids along with being able to “keep the kids happy” with entertainment options are some of the more popular features.
AT&T is the first telecom company to open a research and innovation center, dedicated to the connected car (AT&T Drive Studio, Jan. 2014), to promote safe driving and efficient navigation. We’re working to help make cars safer, more efficient and more reliable through Internet of things (IoT) technologies.
AT&T is helping to improve safety, diagnostics, entertainment and security for connected cars.
Our connected car platform (AT&T Drive) offers a modular, global solution that lets automakers pick and choose what services and capabilities are important to them.
In 2016, AT&T connected more than 50% of all new connected passenger vehicles in the U.S.
We added 1.3 million connected cars to our network in 4Q16.*
But AT&T connects so much more than cars. We support all sorts of connected vehicles, including one of the biggest of all – connected long haul trucks.
- AT&T has relationships with 22 of the top global car and long-haul truck brands: Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, FCA US, Ford, Freightliner, GMC, Honda, Infiniti, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lincoln, Nissan, Opel, Porsche, Subaru, Tesla, Vauxhall, Volvo and VW.
- Our global SIM platform provides wireless connections virtually anywhere in the world (200+ countries and territories).
We are committed to improving road safety through our It Can Wait campaign and as a founding member of the Together for Safer Roads coalition.
