Uruguayan operator Antel has developed a connected vehicle platform in cooperation with local specialist firm Cabatel/Revenga, reports Telesemana. The platform is said to be similar to Chevrolet's OnStar service and equips vehicles with Wi-Fi connectivity and sensors so that real-time data can be gathered on the car's status, location and driving habits. Car rental operator Europcar has already signed up to the service and will connect 500 vehicles in its fleet in time for the summer season.
