The coming disruption in the mobility and automotive space is driving the most significant technology development demands in its history. 1,700 new companies have entered the industry. The advent of a sharing economy is having an impact and creating the opportunity for services to displace vehicle ownership as well as the potential to disrupt the overall industry business model. The demands for innovation to support this potential revolution requires technology application from other verticals, in-house development and partnership with innovative third parties. The future mobility ecosystem with autonomous technology for ride sharing, local massed transit, delivery services and new modes of mobility will present opportunities through connectivity for a wide array of innovation applied to mapping, real-time localization, advanced sensors and efficient computing.
