Autonet Mobile Joins with AT&T to Launch the Next Generation of Connected Car Software

By Business Wire News   


Autonet Mobile and AT&T Inc. announced an agreement to bring Autonet Mobile’s telematics solution and services to the automotive market. These new mobile applications will allow consumers to access their cars from their phones, allow Auto OEM’s to update their cars while on the road and protect the secure and proprietary vehicle information when connected to the cloud.

Using Autonet Mobile’s telematics applications and cloud services running on AT&T 4G LTE network, car owners will have the ability to stay connected to their cars with new features that include the ability to remotely and securely control vehicles with their smartphones, find and track vehicle locations, receive vehicle health reports for timely maintenance, receive instant alerts when airbags are deployed, connect mobile devices to the internet through the in-car WiFi hotspot, and more.

By leveraging Autonet Mobile’s technology and service management platform, AT&T is able to offer connected services to a broader range of vehicles and automakers. Going forward, Autonet’s technology will form the basis for automakers to monitor, in real time, not only how their vehicles perform, but also fix problems and improve vehicle performance through “Over the Air Updates” (OTA) between the manufacturer and the vehicle.

“Commercial partnership like this with AT&T will accelerate the adoption of connected cars and deployment of new connected service capabilities,” said Philip Hughes, President of Autonet Mobile. “We have invented and patented several new technologies that could complement the AT&T Drive platform, and we look forward to showing them in the AT&T Drive Studio.”
