For my own car.. I'll put on my tinfoil hat.

For work though.. the telematics and vehicle management aspect of it along with RF sensors are very interesting to me.. along with the application development platform.

Are they internet connected so the DMV can remotely change the display to "EXPIRED" or "NO INSURANCE"?

lol, WHAT?!  You posted this article for all of us to read without reading it yourself?

Anyway... the answer is yes:

Given what our government *can* achieve surveillance-wise, I fail to see why we can't have transponders in our cars that alert "No Insurance" or "No License", so offenders can be hung from streetlights and their vehicles crushed.

How about 12 years? My understanding is the old ones used the analog cell network, which has been shut down mostly.

I refer to is as the Internet of crap. All your crap, on the Internet. Light bulbs, toasters, fridge, washer, dishwasher, your curling iron, the vacuum, your door locks.

At some point I will adopt the Internet of crap, but first I need a more secure network to put the devices on.
