The Big 6 automakers are expected to unveil their new vehicle-tracking systems later this year, the Wall Street Journal reports, and they’re likely to be one of the first to debut with the next-generation Chevrolet Bolt EV.
The new systems are expected in the 2018 model year, according to Bloomberg News, with the new car-tracking system being a part of the vehicle’s safety package, the first of its kind.
A new system will also be available to owners of the Bolt EV in 2020.
The technology is still in the testing phase, though, with only about 15% of all cars currently being tested, according the Journal.
The cars will likely use the new system to monitor a car’s speed, braking, and acceleration, as well as whether or not it’s in a parking space or on a public road.
The systems, which will also provide alerts for other cars, will be part of GM’s Vision 2025 program.
The program aims to drive down vehicle ownership and congestion, while also creating new jobs.
The automakers have previously said they plan to roll out their car-tracking systems sometime in the 2020s.
The first cars to be tested will be the Chevrolet Cruze and GMC Acadia, but it’s unclear when that will be.
