The automotive industry is always experiencing new developments as technology continues to improve and break new grounds. One of the big issues that has the potential of revolutionising mobility is the issue of connected and automated driving. Although complementary, car automatic and connectivity are intrinsically and distinctively different.
Connected vehicles can exchange information wirelessly with other vehicles and infrastructure as well as other service providers. On the other hand, automated vehicles are vehicles in which at least some aspects of safety-critical control functions occur without the direct input of the driver. These advancements do not only have the potential of improving traffic management and improving air quality but also have the potential of creating new areas of business.
