Austin, Texas (PRWEB) January 17, 2017
RCR Wireless News spoke with experts across the connected car ecosystem for their views on current trends and challenges in connected car services, including PWC, T-Mobile US, Sequans Communications, Gemalto, Fortinet, Aria Systems, Airbiquity, SAP and more.
The report, entitled “Connected Car Connectivity and Services: Is the Industry Ready?”, contains insight into the latest market predictions for connected car and what new services are emerging in the business-to-business, business-to-consumer and business-to-business-to-consumer markets. The connected vehicle space is one of most rapidly-moving segments of the internet of things, and it is its own specialized world. While auto companies increasingly tout vehicle connectivity as a feature, a host of enabling technologies and services are emerging to support – and reap the benefits of – the connected car.
From Bluetooth and Wi-Fi-connected infotainment, to location-based recommendations on restaurants, the services for consumers are only starting to come to market and in many cases are being delivered via smartphone application rather than embedded offerings. Meanwhile, over-the-air software updates and sophisticated telematics information combined with big data analytics holds promise for generating cost savings and new opportunities for revenues across many industries.
“I think everyone who touches the connected car is looking at a way to either make money or save money,” said Craig Miller, VP of marketing for Sequans Communications.
