AT&T and Panasonic: connected car trial

AT&T and Panasonic have teamed up to test a connected car concept to Peachtree City Georgia.  The two companies will work together to test consumer and commuter based features for connected cars including in-car entertainment and emergency services.

From the press release:

“As today’s drivers spend increasing amounts of time on the road, they continue to seek vehicles that complement their ‘always-on’, hyper-mobile lifestyles,” said Steve Deguchi, President of Panasonic Automotive Systems Company of America. “Automakers that successfully make vehicles that deliver smart, personalized services to drivers on demand have a tremendous opportunity to stand out from the competition. The most appealing vehicles will be those that serve as yet another node in a driver’s existing network of devices.”

“There are incredible wireless opportunities in the automotive space and we’ve only scratched the surface,” said Glenn Lurie, President of emerging devices, resale and partnerships, AT&T. “We continue to explore ways to develop a safer connected ecosystem for emerging devices.”
