EU lawmakers vote for wifi-based standard for connected cars

EU lawmakers on Wednesday backed a European Commission plan to promote the use of wifi technology in internet-connected cars, a standard which has the support of Europe’s largest carmaker Volkswagen.

The EU executive wants to set benchmarks for internet connected cars, a market that could generate billions of euros in revenues for carmakers, telecoms operators and equipment makers according to analysts.
