Strategic whitepaper: The vision of the connected car

Today’s cars continuously collect data from up to 100 sensors. By 2020, 80% of cars built around the world will be able to connect to the internet.

It’s a compelling vision: a connected car that can monitor its own engine performance and brake wear, automatically call for assistance in an emergency, and guide drivers through traffic to the perfect parking spot. Smart cars have the potential to transform the entire automotive sector, as well a revolutionize the driver experience. However, car manufacturers first want to know if there is a strong business case for this innovation, and whether the technologies they embed in their vehicles will be reliable, private, and secure.

This white paper focuses on OEM-type connectivity specifically, in which the connected car is powered by a robust back-end system.
