AT&T, Panasonic to create a connected city in GA

AT&T and Panasonic Automotive Systems on Thursday announced they have teamed up to create and test a connected car concept. The initial testing of interfaces between in-car infotainment systems and upcoming mobile devices begins late this year in Peachtree City, GA. AT&T will provide network service while Panasonic Automotive will supply the hardware and integration services.

Details as to the expenditures and how they will be split between the two, however, haven't been revealed. The goal is to provide a framework for the two companies to make customized products for global automotive manufacturers in North America.

"The most appealing vehicles will be those that serve as yet another node in a driver's existing network of devices," said Steve Deguchi, President of Panasonic Automotive Systems. A connected model city is being built that's open to automotive manufacturers, tech providers and others. Panasonic and AT&T will work on their own initiatives but work together on some programs for returned value.
