Exciting Times for Developers, OEMs and Customers
We are currently witnessing the most exciting phase in the history of automotive engineering: vehicles and IT are merging ever more closely, leading to fundamental changes in the coming years. Soon, automobiles will be “always on”, i.e. permanently connected to the Internet. As part of the Internet of Things, they will then exchange data with the cloud and mobile devices, permitting completely new services and making everyday routine noticeably easier for users. Constantly being connected with the driving environment is also the bedrock in one of the biggest revolutions happening to the world of mobility: autonomous driving.
IAV has a clear vision of tomorrow’s vehicles. We are working on a car that seamlessly connects the digital world with personal mobility. Mobile devices and data from the cloud will match the vehicle to the needs of occupants, create a pleasant atmosphere and make traveling as safe and as comfortable as possible. Autonomous driving in particular will benefit from vehicle connectivity because it will permit fully automatic navigation and, even today, is opening up new possibilities for vehicle occupants, such as working, shopping or being entertained while driving.
In cooperation with our partners from the automotive and IT world, we are working on taking this vision to volume production level. At CES in Las Vegas, we will be presenting a selection of the latest developments and invite you to accompany us on a unique journey.
