The shape of things to come. There are many resident engineers from Suzuki and Daihatsu in TMC. Basically they go there to learn the specifications and take it back with them to their company to implement in their vehicles after their 2-3 year assignment is over. That’s how the collaboration works. TMC gains leverage.

Watched the speech to kill some time in lockdown. He did a great job pandering to the crowd mimicking our bogan sayings. The media was also very considerate until the last reporter asked him about Fukushima and how it impacts Japans future nuclear roadmap and what their plans are, he skipped around the question, the reporter asked him again and he the then refused to answer saying “I’m going to stop right here on this topic”. Guess the program couldn’t execute that one.

That is true. Telematics now allows remote services of the vehicle. Anything you imagine that has an ECU can be remotely controlled. You can immobilize the engine, open or close windows, turn the AC on or off, lock or unlock doors and remote start. If Ford is proclaiming this now they are a little bit behind the game as JOEMs and EOEMs have been doing this for more than a few years now. It’s actually the supplier that makes the hardware and applications for this functionality. The vehicle company has to construct the backend servers to process this and you know that all your data will be sold to insurance company’s or what not. Now everything and every time you drive you will be tracked and the information recorded. Systems of control.
