Verizon teaming up with car makers to speed up the adoption of LTE-connected vehicles
The goals will basically include the grafting of smartphone or tablet-like computers into the vehicles as consoles, GPS devices, and in-car entertainment. VZW’s Chief Marketing officer Tami Erwin say "There are many challenges to designing next generation telematics and infotainment solutions, including supporting safe and responsible driving, advancing vehicle-to-vehicle solutions and improving sustainability, among others.”
Vehicle-to-vehicle solutions could refer to helpful safety features, or else they could refer to video chat and gaming with other travelers on the freeway. Hopefully their commitment to safety means you won’t be able to play Words with Friends or Fruit Ninja on the console if the driver is the only person in the car. Otherwise we may need Google’s self-driving cars sooner rather than later.
