AT&T Introduces Three New Applications to the AT&T Drive Connected Car Platform, from AT&T.
Almost two-thirds of drivers surveyed after learning about Connected Car services consider them an important feature in their next car.
AT&T has made a big commitment to bring these services to customers with two major initiatives focused on innovation – AT&T Drive and AT&T Drive Studio. We plan to lead the ecosystem by making it easier than ever for automotive manufacturers to integrate apps from top companies, furthering the connected car reality for drivers.
Over the past year, we announced several applications available via the AT&T Drive platform and today we’re adding three new applications for auto manufacturers to use in their upcoming cars by NPR, Urgent.ly and Xtime. These apps can provide drivers with a wide range of services including stories from NPR and local stations, roadside assistance and remote dealership appointment management.
AT&T Drive is our connected car platform. It is a modular, global solution that allows automakers to pick and choose which services and capabilities are important to them in order to differentiate their solutions in the marketplace. From connectivity and billing solutions to data analytics, infotainment, and firmware over-the-air updates, AT&T Drive allows automakers and developers to implement their own innovative and customized connected car solutions. Drive’s cloud-based app platform can deliver speech-enabled applications designed specifically for cars, so that drivers have access to the information they need while on the road.
