“The most exciting set of opportunities in the connected car ecosystem is the components that are required for vehicle-to-infrastructure connectivity and services. It’s not solely 5G — but opportunities are emerging in edge computing, optical fiber networks, data centers and also connectivity from wireless, satellite and possibly more.”

Iain Gillott

IGR

“The vehicle — auto, truck, UAV — will soon become another platform in a multidevice world. These new ‘devices’ require high-bandwidth, low-latency, ubiquitous connectivity, communications and computing — which offers new opportunities for investors, entrepreneuris and solutions providers to build this next generation of transportation infrastructure.”

Executive Views

“In the next decade, the automotive industry will face a magnitude of change that has not been seen in a century, driven primarily by four mutually reinforcing trends, i.e., autonomous, connected, electric, and shared (ACES) vehicles. These will result in different user behaviors and mobility preferences, shifting value pools, innovative business models, and new entrants into automotive.”

“The processing of substantial amounts of data currently plays a crucial role in the development of autonomous vehicles. The challenge lies not only with storing this data, but also with transferring it, as data collected in the car must be transferred to processing platforms for evaluation and analysis. Reliable and readily available networks and IT Infrastructures form the backbone of connected cars. This is where Interconnection and access to digital ecosystems comes in.”
