Legislation to power Brazil to #1 slot for telematics fitment says a new SBD report
The Brazilian government has introduced legislation to tackle the very high levels of vehicle crime through a program called SIMRAV. SBD have produced a new report which provides an extensive overview of the progress made towards the mandatory fitment of telematics systems to all new vehicles in Brazil as a part of SIMRAV.
The attitudes of different car manufacturers in meeting this legislation are analysed to show which are doing the minimum necessary to comply with the new legislation and which are taking the opportunity to provide added-value services to their customers. The report also reviews the roadblocks to providing additional services in what is a relatively immature market for telematics, and looks at the lessons learnt by the government during the 3 1/2 years they have spent developing SIMRAV.
