Connectivity is gradually turning the automobile into a highly efficient data harvesting device. Car-makers & consumers are still not sure what implications this has for the future of the car, the auto business and driving itself. TU’s Siegfried Mortkowitz investigated some of these possibilities.
The connected car is a work in progress, and has been for more than a decade. As the technology evolves and more players enter the ecosystem, its business case continues to evolve as well, with staggering possibilities for car-makers, if they get it right. But as more solutions enter the space, it is becoming increasingly difficult to get a clear picture of just what ‘right’ means.
