SKT joins hands with Chery for vehicle networking techChery Automobile, China’s seventh-largest automaker, said yesterday it has jointly built a laboratory with Korea’s leading mobile carrier SK Telecom in a bid to boost both sides’ competitiveness in vehicle networking technology.
After three years of coordination, the two companies recently launched the Vehicle Networking Technology Laboratory to study the application of the Mobile In Vehicle (MIV) telematics service to Chery automobiles, Chery Automobile officials said.
“We seek to develop smart vehicles that will enable mobile phone-controlled driving using the top Korean telecom operator’s technology,” said Chen Anning, vice general manager at Chery.
The MIV service is expected to enable drivers to use their mobile phones to check driving performances and control various vehicle components.
Chery has been working to expand its presence in the world’s electric vehicle market in line with the Chinese government’s push to foster an eco-friendly automobile market
