Company milestones

WirelessCar began as a joint venture between a car manufacturer, a telecommunications systems supplier and a telecom operator. In our first year of business we had our first customer up-and-running. By 2003 we took the leap from being a telematics infrastructure provider to being an end-to-end supplier of telematics.
