Audi to launch integrated toll devices in the US

Audi has revealed it will roll out integrated toll collection devices in its US-market models later this year, allowing drivers to pass toll points without the need for an additional device. The technology is built into the rear-view mirror, and can be controlled via the infotainment system. In a statement released earlier this week, the German marque says the device is compatible with various toll roads across the USA along with parts of Canada and Mexico.

Renault Nissan Alliance to partner with Microsoft on connected-car tech
