Infotainment & Connectivity
The Future of the mobility is electric – connected – autonomous. The cars is becoming another central point in our lives in addition to workplace and home, where we check our business e-mails, shop online, communicate via social networks or stream our favorite music via smartphone.
Driving itself is transforming from a mere necessity to a new productive “quality time”. At the same time, navigation data and technical data about the condition of the vehicle are continuously sent back and forth. Due to connected driving and the constant connectivity of the vehicles parts of the automotive value chain are shifting from manufacturers to IT and software experts and within this industry to some big players like Intel, Infineon, Microsoft and IBM as well as providers like Telekom, Telefonica and Vodafone. This development will be further strengthened by the demand for consistent standards. In order to be able to offer connectivity solutions on a global level providers need to have a certain size to handle this kind of large scale projects.
The key to the New Mobility is the quality of the data. This concerns the gaining of data using cameras and sensors, their transmission via a powerful communication infrastructure, saving the data in a high-performance secure environment as well as data processing in high-speed big data solutions. Additionally, all these functions have to be performed in real time to enable the steering systems of autonomous and automated vehicles to react in time and thus move safely in urban traffic – while entertaining the driver.
