Digital security provider Gemalto has announced that Flaircomm Microelectronics is integrating Gemalto’s M2M solution in their telematics control unit.
The solution, which has been designed for car manufacturers in China includes the Cinterion(R) MIM and integrates smoothly with in-car cellular networks.
In a statement, Gemalto said that the box is ruggedized for extreme condition including high temperatures, pressures and vibrations. It can inform the driver of the car conditions such as oil pressure, car speed and engine status, as well as providing information on nearest amenities like petrol stations and convenience stores.
If the car breaks down or is involved in an accident, an emergency call (eCall) will also be triggered automatically for assistance and medical help.
Luke Shi, Chairman of Flaircomm Microelectronics said: “We have passed the joint debugging test carried out by ten European operators, and so we have become a key player in the automotive industry for both domestic and international markets.”
