Connectivity will be at the heart of next generation vehicles. Whether it will be real-time traffic flow information, mapping, infotainment or remote access to emergency services, all these services will require connectivity.
Connected vehicle applications and services have distinctive features; they need to operate globally and usually have a very long ‘device’ lifetime, however can be integrated with local intelligent transport solutions and need to comply with local security and emergency regulations.
Connected vehicle and smart transport applications have the potential to bring substantial benefits to consumers, including making travel safer, reducing congestion, and providing real time information to passengers.
The GSMA is working with mobile operators and automotive OEMs to align the industry and wider ecosystem around a common approach to security and network connectivity to accelerate the growth of the Connected Vehicle market.
Governments can help encourage the development of the connected vehicle and intelligent transport ecosystems by:
- Introducing incentives for innovation and investment
- Leading with light-touch regulation that will allow the market to scale while building trust and confidence of consumers
- Promoting research and development programmes for connected and autonomous vehicles
- Supporting services, applications and network industry-led standards and interoperability
