In a world where people are connected 24/7 through their devices, the isolation of cars seems obsolete. Consumers want to be connected even when they are in their vehicles. And when done right, connected cars make for safer cars.
Society is on the path to achieving autonomous driving, self-driving or driver-less cars. It’s only a matter of time before it becomes mainstream. Prototype projects are well under way and every advance in assisted driving is a step in the direction of autonomous driving.
Virtually every facet of modern life already relies on ever-smarter software coupled with ever-faster internet, and cars are no different. The future of driving rests on completely re-designing the core architecture of the car, as well as re-thinking the software that powers it.
HMI technology is constantly evolving, and future-proof operating systems are required to ensure that HMIs can stay up to date with the latest trends and features.
