New Technology Platform Enables OEMs, Dealers and Insurers to Build
Strong Relationships with Drivers Telematics Detroit 2013, Michigan - June 5, 2013
WATERLOO, ON, June 5, 2013 /CNW/ - Intelligent Mechatronic Systems
(IMS), a leading Connected Car™ company, today unveiled its next
generation IMS DriveSync®solution at Telematics Detroit 2013.
The new IMS DriveSync solution is a fully converged Connected Car
platform that combines the best of Telematics and Infotainment, with
the fun of social networking - turning any vehicle into a connected
car. IMS DriveSync uniquely puts drivers at the center of the
experience, connecting them to the entire driving ecosystem - including
OEMs, dealers, insurers, service providers and fellow drivers. It
delivers the ultimate Connected Car experience by enabling strong
relationships through services that help save time, money and lives.
On the Infotainment side, IMS DriveSync works through a smartphone or
other mobile device. Using a voice-powered "tap and talk" interface,
drivers can safely send and receive texts and emails, access Internet
radio, and update Facebook and Twitter. On the Telematics side, a
self-install device plugs into a vehicle's On-board Diagnostics (OBD-2)
port to monitor vehicle health and support preventative maintenance.
This device links drivers to OEMs, dealers and insurers - all of whom
can communicate with the driver using custom notifications. Drivers
also get access to an exciting, new social community where they can
chat, meet-up, and upgrade to premium services, such as usage-based
insurance and young drivers programs.
"IMS DriveSync brings Connected Car technology to any vehicle, enabling
drivers to be smarter, safer and greener", said Dr. Otman Basir, CEO of
IMS. "In addition, OEMs, dealers and insurers can adopt this platform
to build strong, loyal relationships with drivers of new and used
IMS DriveSync technology is available immediately to OEMs. The solution
will be available to consumers and dealers during Summer 2013. For more
