In January, Mitsubishi announced a new partnership with Otonomo to improve the smart tech for Mitsubishi vehicles. Though Mitsubishi vehicles currently offer plenty of opportunities for connectivity, the newly-announced alliance will help meet the ever-growing consumer demand for intelligent safety and convenience technology in their cars and SUVs.
Otonomo specializes in internationally-compliant data transfers that allows information to be relayed expeditiously and securely from the vehicle to third-party merchants and service providers. Otonomo is currently partnered with over 100 different companies, which means that Mitsubishi is joining a massive network that will help expand in-car technologies for drivers.
As a result of this partnership, Mitsubishi drivers could benefit from in-vehicle apps that allow them to pay for parking, find a place to charge their car, or schedule maintenance from the comfort of the driver’s seat – while parked, of course. The potential integration of intelligent navigation in future Mitsubishi vehicles could lead to safer, less congested roadways and fewer emissions.
Ben Volkow, co-founder and CEO of Otonomo, endorsed the company’s partnership with Mitsubishi. “This is an exciting opportunity for drivers around the world, and we look forward to a continued relationship. We are very proud of this partnership, which will position Mitsubishi Motors as an industry leader, providing driver experiences powered by car data.”
