Telenor Connexion offers a remote control system that allows the owners to operate the car’s features or check the battery level and so on via private mobile networks, using a mobile phone or PC. It will connect the car to Nissan’s CARWINGS Data Center and will enable electric vehicle battery state monitoring, usage history and air-conditioning remote control.
Now imagine if someone hack into it and change your settings as you’re driving along, probably put the AC on when it’s freezing cold out there! Could be fun!
– “Telenor Connexion’s dedicated telematics solution connects Nissan LEAF’s onboard unit to the Nissan CARWINGS Data Center in a private network environment allowing Nissan to deliver a secure and stable product to our customers,” says Pierre Loing, Vice president of product strategy and planning at Nissan International SA and head of the company’s European zero emission business unit. Nissan International, located in Rolle, Switzerland, is the headquarters of Nissan in Europe.
– “We are very excited to work with Nissan, who is playing a major role in setting a standard for the whole EV industry. This agreement is the start of what we expect to be a long-term partnership. It is of significant value for Telenor Connexion, but above all it reinforces our position as the leading connectivity supplier in the automotive industry. We already have agreements with major global automotive players such as Volvo Cars, Volvo Trucks, Scania and Daimler,” says Per Simonsen, CEO of Telenor Connexion.
