Automotive Software Trends

The automotive industry is undergoing enormous transformation as it contends with challenges in ensuring passenger safety, opportunities for advancing the software state of the art at vast scales, and new business models that will upend our entire concept of transportation.

Not only is the self-driving car near the top of current technology challenges and products. The automotive industry is also deeply involved in nearly all of the other current IT and computing trends: industrial Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) for autonomous driving, 5G connectivity, ubiquitous sensor systems and senor fusion—even hyper-converged systems for powerful yet flexible cloud services.

The modern car really is becoming a “computer on wheels” as the automobile industry emerges as a powerful force in developing and implementing new technologies.
