TeliaSonera has recently introduced a cloud based connected car solution - Telia Sense - which was announced at the recent TeliaSonera´s annual Internet of Things symposium. Together with partners from the automotive and insurance industries, the operator is bringing smart features such as car diagnostics, pro-active car maintenance, tailored car insurance, all with 4G wifi hotspot connectivity to the car. The new value added services will be made available in the Nordic and Baltic countries starting with Sweden next year, said the operator. 

By using an app together with the installed hardware in the car, car owners get access to existing and new smart features. The cloud based connected car solution will be offered under three separate componenets, a monthly subscription, hardware consisting of a car telematics unit with an included SIM-card for installation in the OBD2-port of the car which is available on all cars from 2001, and an app for smartphones.

The end user interface and the technical platform for Telia Sense are provided by Springworks, a pioneer in building smart human interfaces for Internet of Things-applications. 

Hans Dahlberg, Head of TeliaSonera Global M2M Services
Our cloud based solution can as easily be installed in older as well as newer cars enabling our customers to be in control and feel at home both on and off the road. We don´t make cars but we want to make cars awesome for our customers.

Jens Henriksson, CEO of Folksam, a leading insurance company in Sweden
Safer driving is important from a human as well as more environmentally friendly perspective. The combination of our engagement in our customers and focus for safer driving with the expertise and connectivity by Telia is the first step out of many towards the future of connected insurances.
