Connected cars create a new driving experience thanks to greater safety, comfort and entertainment. Lane-departure warning technology, parking systems and emergency braking functions are now standard features. They have also become key criteria when it comes to buying a car, and would even prompt many drivers to switch car brand. The potential for new, innovative technologies is immense, but they are not produced by the automakers themselves. This means that suppliers specializing in car connectivity are an essential part of the process. They deliver the corresponding technologies to the automotive industry that extend and/or optimize communication inside and outside the vehicle. And it is they that are likely to have the greatest exposure to the connectivity trend, and that are most likely to profit from the market momentum. The connected car business includes companies from the automotive suppliers and technology sectors that develop connectivity technologies for the car industry.
