Answer to the riddle: what prevents a mass introduction of telematics?
All of the car companies that offer telematics systems have introduced their systems first in their own major market, which is usually their headquarters country, and then have gradually begun selling it in other markets around the world. Only one company, Daimler-Benz, attempted a big bang introduction of telematics, and that attempt failed. Today, it is sold only in the US and China. Volvo Cars delivers telematics in fifteen western European countries, Russia and Brazil, but it is still not available in Eastern Europe. It has taken BMW over fifteen years to cover the largest countries in Europe, the US and China. There are many factors that inhibit a mass introduction of telematics. In this presentation I will describe the most important of these factors.
