DALLAS -- As 4G LTE networks reach more and more people in the US, virtually every automobile manufacturer is working toward a connected car that takes advantage of next-generation data speeds, from voice-controlled apps and infotainment to advanced diagnostics. AT&T today announced two major initiatives to lead innovation in the connected car market – a first-of-its-kind connected car center in Atlanta, called the AT&T Drive Studio, and a modular, global automotive platform called AT&T Drive.

Located in Atlanta, the more than 5,000-square foot AT&T Drive Studio features working garage bays, a speech lab, a full showroom to exhibit the latest innovations, conference facilities, and much more. The AT&T Drive Studio integrates AT&T solutions across multiple companies and serves as a hub where AT&T can respond to needs of automotive manufacturers and the auto ecosystem at large.

AT&T is the first carrier to open a dedicated facility for connected car innovation and research. Called the AT&T Drive Studio, it will be the premier location for creating the future of connected cars.

Located just blocks away from AT&T’s newest Foundry innovation center in Atlanta, the AT&T Drive Studio is a working lab where AT&T tests and develops technologies to enhance the driving experience by improving safety, convenience and entertainment.

AT&T Drive is the company’s connected car platform – a modular, global solution that allows automakers to pick and choose what services and capabilities are important to them in order to differentiate their solutions in the marketplace. From connectivity and billing solutions to data analytics and infotainment, AT&T Drive will allow auto makers and developers to develop their own innovative and customized connected car solutions, now and in the future.

AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T)

Safety first
How about AT&T putting a device in cars that will not allow texting and phoning while car is moving. That would endear them to all who lost loved ones in accidents. Just saying!,,
