December 22 Motorola Opens Application Communication Protocol Specs to Telematics Industry Players; Motorola Hopes Move Will Encourage Universal Protocol for Telematics Applications

In an attempt to standardize its over-the-air protocol, Motorola, a leading provider of telemetric systems to auto manufacturers, announced that it is allowing public access to its Application Communication Protocol Version 3 (ACP V3) specifications.  This move capitalizes on the wide acceptance of ACP V3 by several European telematics industry participants.  For the last four years, Motorola has been developing and deploying versions of ACP V3 to the leading auto manufacturers in Europe and is currently working towards deployment in its U.S. telematric systems.  By opening access to ACP V3 specifications, Motorola hopes that companies will adopt the protocol, making it an instrumental player in the establishment of the telematric protocol compatible with most wireless technologies.

Telematics provides location-specific security, information, productivity, and in-vehicle entertainment services to drivers and their passengers.
