TECHNOLOGICAL REVOLUTION IN LAS VEGAS
During 4 intense days (9-12 January) the 2018 CES, held in Las Vegas, – the world most important International Consumer Electronics Show presenting more than 3,900 exhibiting companies, including manufacturers, developers, suppliers of consumer technology hardware etc. coming from 150 countries – presented the best solutions offered to the automotive industry by the world’s telecommunications providers.
A NEW DIALOGUE BETWEEN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND AUTOMOTIVE MANUFACTURERS
Tech start-ups, Artificial intelligence experts, telecommunication companies had very fruitful encounters in Las Vegas changing forever the face of the automotive industry.
Today, bold opportunities, new challenges are, in fact, in sight, for both automotive manufacturers and telecommunications providers.
As a recent report made by the British incorporated multinational professional services network, Deloitte, explains, vehicles’ current connectivity and tech velocity degree allow drivers to benefit from state-of-the-art assistance systems and ultra-modern new devices.
A significant on-going technological revolution and certainly an “imminent challenge” for telecom companies according to Deloitte that stated that “its estimates indicate data traffic associated with mobility and transportation could grow to 9.4 exabytes every month by 2030 as autonomous vehicles become more pervasive, highlighting the exponential growth in data traffic that could exert significant pressure for higher bandwidth. These estimates vastly exceed most industry projections, which don’t take into account the complexities and far-reaching implications of the future of mobility.”
Connected and automated mobility, infrastructure data integration, new interoperability practices: those are some of the many objectives at the horizon for both industries.
In this new scenario, according to Deloitte, telecom providers will have a pivotal role to play since they are likely to become tomorrow’s “hub for content-centric digital lives including multiple interconnected and personalized smart devices [and]also our access to transportation.”
Deloitte also explains that in today’s ever-evolving mobility landscape, content sourcing, creation, aggregation, pricing, bundling and distribution will also probably undergo a steady change.
“The in-vehicle infotainment experience will be more immersive and engaging, delivering an augmented experience for cars’ passengers as compared to media consumption on today’s tablets and smartphones,” states the famous accounting organization.
