Participants were major car manufacturer such as BMW, Daimler Chrysler, Fiat, Ford, Renault, Volvo, and major Telecom players like France Telecom, Orange, Telecom Italia, Motorola, etc, altogether around 60 companies.

The purpose of GST is to create an environment in which innovative telematics services can be developed and delivered cost-effectively and hence to increase the range of economic telematics services available to manufacturers and consumers.
