RealVNC®, the global provider of VNC® remote access technology and premier MirrorLink® supplier are proud to announce their new collaboration with Frazer-Nash Research Ltd, the pioneering British technology and electric powertrain developer.
At last week’s Connected Cars 2016 event Frazer-Nash unveiled that their technology in Ecotive’s new MetroCab allows for unprecedented protection from hackers.
Frazer-Nash’s advanced software protection system has been built into the Metrocab taxi, the only zero-emissions capable taxi on the road which leads in the cutting edge of green transportation design.
Frazer-Nash collaborated with RealVNC to redefine how Metrocab passengers commute. RealVNC connectivity technology allows commuters to securely sync their mobile device to the Metrocab’s 18 inch passenger compartment screen via Wi-Fi, allowing passengers to send and receive emails, check social media posts and stream videos.
“We are thrilled to be working with Frazer-Nash, and to play a key role in the technology that underpins the all-new Metrocab” said Tom Blackie, Vice President Mobile at RealVNC. “As trusted MirrorLink specialists, our collaboration with Frazer-Nash redefines how passengers commute, allowing them to stay connected at all times.”
