Chevrolet would like to welcome you to the future, where you don’t have to worry about identifying problems in your car—there’s now a technology for that. The American carmaker recently announced the creation of the first-ever prognostic technology, a new system that uses advanced connected vehicle equipment to solve problems with your car before they start, while also notifying you of recalls.
“This is a new chapter in our pursuit to provide customers with convenience and the best overall service in the industry,” said Alicia Boler-Davis, General Motors senior vice president for Global Connected Customer Experience. “Using our innovative OnStar 4G LTE connectivity platform, we can actively monitor vehicle component health and notify our customers if covered vehicle components need attention. Nobody else in the industry is offering this.”
The prognostic system uses General Motors’ OnStar 4G LTE to stream data from the vehicle to the company’s database. This connectivity, along with various sensors throughout the vehicles, allow the company to identify if a component is not working properly, making it easier to bring your car in to the mechanic.
This ground-breaking technology will debut in the 2015 Chevrolet Equinox, Tahoe, Suburban, Corvette, Silverado, and Silverado HD later this year. For more information on this first-ever prognostic technology, contact Nehls Chevrolet today!
