New Mandate by European Parliament for Vehicle Telematics


- June 28, 2011

Despite rapid advances in telem­at­ics in the past five years, pen­e­tra­tion with Euro­pean OEMs remains low. A few car man­u­fac­tur­ers have wad­ed into the telem­at­ics mar­ket, but most have remained on the bank tepid­ly tap­ping their toes. From this per­spec­tive, eCall is pos­i­tive leg­is­la­tion for the telem­at­ics indus­try, as it will force car OEMs to imple­ment a basic telem­at­ics plat­form by 2014.
