BMW deal with Vodafone to deploy telematic services

Described here. Sadly no sustainable transport or driver behaviour angle to it at all, though traffic avoidance will deliver some sort of carbon reduction benefit. I suppose the safety thing won’t hurt either – support for e112, and so on. But it’s mainly aimed at making things even nice for drivers – concierge services and so on. As described elsewhere on this blog, that reduces the ‘misery price’ of driving, and makes it more likely that people will drive more.
