As vehicle manufacturers transition to become mobility service providers, the automotive industry is at a crossroads and experiencing a change. Over the next decade, global demand for CAV technology is projected to skyrocket, paving the way for additional income and customers.
To sustain long-term growth, automakers must address a number of critical issues, including preventing cyber threats and safeguarding consumer data, collaborating with new technology entrants, determining winning business models for global rollout of connected cars, and improving autonomous driving technology.
In CIHT’s Future of Transport on Autonomous and Connected Vehicles webinar, we will take a deep dive into the newest industry trends and participants will hear thought-provoking case study presentations from leading experts on the field.
