Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will use Idemia’s connectivity services to make driving easier and safer.
Idemia’s Dakota eSIM will be embedded into new vehicles due to be launched in multiple regions, and integrated with subscription manager platform Smart Connect.
They pave the way for features such as emergency calls, predictive maintenance and insurance-related services.
The augmented identity company says it also simplifies the manufacturing process and can remotely update software and tailor connectivity packages to local regulations and requirements.
Yves Portalier, executive vice president for biometric devices and automotive activities at Idemia, said, “The fact that leading premium car makers and more than 500 mobile operators around the world turn to Idemia to support them in addressing various connectivity needs and simplify the migration to this new ecosystem, shows that we are clearly a trusted partner.”
