A Journey Towards Digital Mobility
Following IAV's successful appearance at this year's CES, in 2018 the company will once more be presenting its vision of the future of digital mobility.
In future, vehicles will communicate far more with each other and with their surroundings than they do today. As part of the Internet of Things, they will be a rolling device which is always on. The vehicle thus becomes a platform which connects the digital world seamlessly with personal mobility. Mobile devices and cloud data ensure that the vehicle adapts to the needs of the passengers, generating a pleasant atmosphere and making the journey as safe and comfortable as possible. Autonomous driving, in particular, will profit from vehicle connectivity, as this is what makes fully automatic navigation possible in the first place, while also opening up new possibilities to passengers already today, such as working, shopping or enjoying entertainment during the journey.
New mobility concepts also permit a whole range of new servicing possibilities: remote diagnosis assesses fault messages while the vehicle is still on the move. The autonomous vehicle than takes itself to the service center and returns to the office car park, repairs completed and ready to drive home at the end of the day.
Together with our partners in the automotive and IT world, we are working at making this vision ready for volume production. At the CES 2018 in Las Vegas, we will be presenting a number of developments and would like to invite you to join us on the journey into the future of digital mobility.
