AT&T will serve as the Center’s exclusive cellular network provider through 2020, and the Center will provide an environment for further cross-industry collaboration to explore, create and safely test driverless technologies. In order for a car to be fully automated, the ability to “talk” to everything around it – other vehicles, city infrastructure, etc. – is necessary and AT&T will enable that connectivity in a secure manner.
