Safran to Show Off Smart Car Demo of eSIM Solution at Auto ShowThe company’s MorphoFlex solution will work with the QNX CAR Platform to demonstrate how GSMA-compliant SIMs can be used to ensure smart car connectivity, even when drivers cross into different countries. It will also show how auto makers can change driver credentials throughout the lifespans of their vehicles as necessary.

In a statement announcing the showcase, Safran emphasized the emergence of the connected car along with the Internet of Things, citing a Gartner prediction that by 2020, over 250 million vehicles on the road will feature some kind of wireless connectivity. By showcasing MorphoFlex with a tangible demo at TU-Automotive, Safran has the opportunity to catch the interest of auto makers ahead of the anticipated smart car boom.

It’s just one front for Safran’s efforts promoting its eSIM provisioning solution, for which the company envisions a range of applications as the Internet of Things emerges.
