Weekly Brief: Frankfurt Motor Show and the ‘networked vehicle’


The networked vehicle takes center stage as automakers and telematics suppliers debut new solutions at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Andrew Tolve reports.

In this week’s Brief: Porsche, Opel, Jaguar Land Rover, Bosch SoftTec, Volkswagen, OnStar, Mercedes-Benz, QNX, Continental, IBM, TomTom, Ford, Renault, Sony and Nokia.

It says something of the growing acceptance of telematics when one of Europe’s biggest auto shows is themed around the “networked vehicle,” as was the case last week at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
