The future of connectivity in the car
That digital connectivity has become an important part of our daily lives has never been more clearly highlighted than over the last few weeks and months. Throughout lockdown, digital connectivity has been a comfort for many and the ‘go-to’ method of communication.
Inevitably then, digital connectivity has an important part to play in the future of motoring and integration will become an expectation rather than a choice.
Over the air updates will become commonplace as the introduction of new apps continues and cloud-based connectivity using 5G becomes mainstream. Software-based audio could reframe the quality of sound in vehicles with the necessary hardware making music and audio available in the vehicle, on demand.
When it comes to self-driving vehicles, Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR and AR) could transform the travel experience with sound, visuals and heads-up displays that bring an incredible level of information or entertainment with minimum distraction. The Experiences Per Mile Advisory Council exists to explore how trends and intelligent technology will affect the in-car connected experiences demanded by consumers in the future.
