AAIA Aftermarket Telematics Challenge Accepting Entries
June 5, 2013—The second annual Aftermarket Telematics Challenge, sponsored by the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA), is now open for entries.
The competition is designed to identify and recognize the best example of technology and software that can be fitted to a vehicle to perform remote diagnostics and other safety and maintenance telematics services.
“The independent aftermarket has already demonstrated that meaningful connectivity with the vehicle is not the exclusive domain of the car companies,” said Scott Luckett, AAIA CIO. “Aftermarket telematics products and solutions are coming on the market regularly, and the Aftermarket Telematics Challenge will identify the best solution for preserving consumer choice and open competition for parts and service business.”
Entries are due to AAIA by Sept. 20, and the winner will be announced in November at AAPEX in Las Vegas. The winner will be recognized with a $10,000 scholarship in their name to the Aftermarket Scholarship Fund.
