Blyncsy and Panasonic Announce Strategic Alliance to Accelerate Connected Vehicle Technology

​​ Today, Blyncsy, Inc. and Panasonic Corporation of North America have announced a strategic alliance, in which Blyncsy will use its technology and integration services to develop ITS and connected vehicle solutions that will run on the CIRRUS by Panasonic® platform. Specifically, Blyncsy will supply Panasonic with connected vehicle applications and technology to assist with safety and efficiency improvements on roadways utilizing connected vehicle technologies. Powered by the CIRRUS by Panasonic® platform, Blyncsy’s applications can provide real-world solutions.

“Panasonic is committed to delivering on the significant potential of connected vehicle technology. However, we feel strongly that no single organization can alone transform transportation. To really ‘move the needle’ we’ll need to build and participate in a rich ecosystem of stakeholders. Our relationship with Blyncsy demonstrates a commitment to this approach, and we are excited to work together to accelerate this inflection moment in transportation and mobility.” said Chris Armstrong, Director of Panasonic’s Smart Mobility team.

"Today’s announcement marks a fundamental shift in how connected vehicle technologies will be delivered in the future. Our goal is to improve our roadways and save lives in the process. The tools that connected vehicle technologies provide are unlike anything experienced by our industry previously. Panasonic and Blyncsy have teamed up to accelerate the deployment of connected vehicle technologies across the country and that acceleration starts today,” said Mark Pittman, Blyncsy CEO.  

The first Blyncsy applications are already running in beta on the CIRRUS by Panasonic® platform and scaling up to be available to customers.
