UAZ announced the start of pilot testing of off-road vehicles with Connected car technology, which includes the ability to remotely control certain vehicle functions with a smartphone. About it reports a press-service of the Ulyanovsk automobile plant.
Oise partner in the new project was the IT company of C-Cars, the program which allows in real time to different telematics data from the car. It is, for example, about his whereabouts, the driving style of the driver or the fuel level in the fuel tank and on the technical condition of the car.
