While cars worldwide are plagued with distracted driving, car manufacturers are trying to find a solution. Without having a million public service announcements, and having new laws that prohibit dangerous driving, car manufacturers are taking this matter into their own hands. In an effort to make vehicles more safe and user friendly, mobile technology is being developed. Drivers will not have to wait very long to get this new technology. Within only a couple of years, consumers will begin to see cars with certain mobile features and GSMA expects that by the year 2025, nearly every vehicle will be fully equipped with mobile technology. The following 4 are types of mobile technology that automakers and GSMA expect to see built into all vehicles during the coming few years.
Many drivers are already benefiting from mobile technology cars. The plans for the European Commission are by 2015 to have all new cars equipped with emergency service call features. Due to the fast growth of mobile technology, sales of emergency call services are expected to reach by 2016 to 7 million units. In Russia it will be mandatory very soon for every vehicle to be equipped with this technology. Brazil is also planning that by 2018 all vehicles will be equipped with stolen vehicle tracking systems. Also by 2018, 9 percent of all vehicles will include tethered solutions, 18 percent will be equipped with smartphone integration and 31 percent will be equipped with SIM technology. No doubt it is obvious as to why automakers expect that by 2025 mobile technology will be the norm.
