As the world’s roads become increasingly congested, drivers are seeking smarter vehicles and transport systems that can give them real-time information about traffic jams, weather conditions, road works and parking availability. At the same time, governments are calling for cars to be able to automatically alert emergency services as soon as a vehicle is involved in an accident and to be equipped with tracking systems to combat theft.
The automotive industry has the potential to play a transformative role in the connected future by delivering new services such as:
- On-demand, in-car entertainment
- Low-cost pay-as-you-drive insurance
- Location-enabled security features
- Real-time fleet management
To accelerate the development and deployment of connected automotive solutions and devices, the GSMA is engaging with automakers, mobile network operators and the wider ecosystem to better understand their needs and to reduce the barriers to adoption.
