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.
We’re 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, we 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 we connect so much more than cars. We support all sorts of connected vehicles, including one of the biggest of all – connected long haul trucks.
- We have 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.
