There has been a lot of buzz surrounding new developments in the M2M market. Now that it’s Saturday, take some time to check out a summary of some of the stories from the past week.
AT&T (News - Alert) and GE have come together in a strategic partnership with plans to dominate the M2M market. AT&T, a mobile technology provider, and GE, an innovation company that works on various technology projects have signed a global alliance agreement that will give GE the ability to access AT&T’s network and cloud operations.
Additionally, the agreement will allow both of the companies to work together on a variety of projects including building products, SIM systems, and cloud solutions. According to the reports, both AT&T and GE are excited about this new agreement and hope that customers will soon benefit from their join projects.
While to large companies have come together to work on development, another is looking for funding. The collision avoidance system is installed in most of the newer cars on the market. You have probably seen it in the advertisements boasting that it can help stop the car before an accident.
In response, Radarboys, has developed a new tool that needs crowdfunding to get off the ground. The new solution takes smartphone technology and with a small module addition will offer the same solution to prevent accidents. The major difference – it would work for all cars, basically anyone with a smartphone and it would come at a much less expensive cost.
"Our iC2 device is more than a fad tech gadget. The same collision avoidance technology that is used in high-end luxury cars is now available to everyone in an affordable, easy-to-use device. We believe that helping drivers become more aware of their surroundings can decrease injuries and deaths on the roads and help them become more confident behind the wheel. Whether on the road for business or taking the family on vacation, we’re committed to helping our customers get from Point A to Point B more safely," said Andrew Cramer, CEO of Radarboys.
