The technological advances - including safety systems, vehicle connectivity, and self-driving cars -have changed the automotive world as we know it. The automobile, once mechanical to its core needs to keep up pace with today’s challenges of our digitalized world, an environment with great demands in terms of new expertise, and attract new competitors from outside the industry.
Focus on connectivity and usability
Customers across the world want networked and easy-to-handle devices that can help them conduct their daily work in an efficient way. Keeping the balance between design and usability, “tailored” mass production, while focusing on the product features, as well as dealing with evermore shorter product life cycles are just a few of the challenges the industry is facing nowadays.
The car of the future: the connected car
The connected car is able to receive, transmit and store information. Driver-assist systems based on intelligent sensor technology, constantly monitor the surroundings and the driving behavior to detect potential hazards on the road. The car can be connected to your phone, provide you with information on destinations, while also keeping you entertained. Having this in mind, the dream of highly automated driving is becoming more and more tangible.
