Inmarsat is to showcase its connectivity solutions for the next generation of connected vehicles at the upcoming International Motor Show (IAA) and New Mobility World.
It is known that Inmarsat is the provider of global mobile satellite communication services. The Connected Car team of the company will showcase and demonstrate its satellite-powered connectivity solutions that will have the capability to enable automakers to efficiently, cost effectively and securely deliver a wider range of operational services and applications to their fleets of connected vehicles around the globe.
Inmarsat Connected Car is working with automotive manufacturers and suppliers around the globe to begin incorporating satellite as part of a ‘network of networks’ that has the capability to provide the connectivity needed to the next generation of connected vehicles. Earlier this year, it entered into a partnership with Continental to begin developing the satellite equipment that will be able to be embedded into a vehicle’s existing antenna and internal electronics units to access Inmarsat’s global, two-way data network.
With Inmarsat embedded into the vehicle, motor manufacturers will be able to efficiently and securely transmit critical updates to its fleet of vehicles using the company’s highly reliable, fully owned and operated global network – reducing millions in recall and warranty costs and drastically decreasing the need for the driver to bring the car into the dealer or servicing center. Additionally, Inmarsat’s satellite network will be able to deliver enhanced GNSS data for more precise and detailed positioning that will be critical as autonomous driving vehicles become more prevalent.
