With 20 years of experience working as a connected vehicle service delivery provider in the automotive software industry, Airbiquity has always been at the forefront of the connected car scene. Through our software technology and solutions, we’ve played an active role in connecting cars, and making them increasingly software-driven. As a result they’ve morphed into much more than just a way to get from one place to another, but extensions of consumer digital lifestyles and a catalyst for massive change in the way society will experience future mobility.
As the inevitable convergence of the software technology and automotive worlds gain momentum—arguably becoming one of the fastest growing internet-of-everything (IoT) market sectors today—the two powers are steadily developing a symbiotic and fruitful relationship. We’ve clearly entered an era where the future of automotive, and transportation in general, will be firmly rooted in vehicle connectivity and associated software technologies and services.
To understand where we’re going in such a rapidly changing landscape, we must also appreciate where we’ve been. This infographic, Mapping Vehicle Connectivity: The Driving Force Behind Automotive Innovation, aims to visually summarize the past, present and future of vehicle connectivity. We hope you find it informative, and thanks for coming along for the ride.
