As connectivity transforms the future of the car our focus as an industry often falls on technologies and business models that lay behind it.
The promise of self-driving cars is truly phenomenal; eliminating road deaths, mobilizing the elderly and reducing emissions is just the start. But have you considered the ethical questions at stake?
Self-driving cars are coming - that is clear. But do planners realize their benefits and are they agile enough to assimilate rapid tech. evolution into their infrastructure provisioning?
Highly accurate maps are crucial to support location awareness in a connected world Brought -in or embedded mapping are standard for every driver. How can OEMs use their map proposition to differentiate?
It's the elephant in the room; whilst aspiring to design technology that saves lives - the path will not be perfect. Confront the tough legal issues that will define the future of automotive innovation.
From a tech. standpoint, self-driving vehicles are a matter of not if, but when. But there are no such legislative certainties.
