Connect2Car illustrated the reality of the technologies that will support driverless mobility including; 5G, IoT platforms, anti-collision systems, emergency breaking but also on the technologies that enhance the ride experience. The focus on autonomous vehicles has enabled new technological development for the in-car experience; changing interior lights, aromas and scents to create the ‘perfect’ passenger experience.
At the flick of a button, passengers can turn their windscreens into an in-car cinema. If that’s not next-generation automotive – what is?
The Samsung subsidiary Harman put on an unforgettable experience; which aimed not only to demonstrate the connected car but also how the connected car, connects to our daily lives.
Harman aims to integrate this in-car experience with a user’s smartphone seamlessly so that they can use their favourite personal assistant apps in their vehicles much like in their homes. There is a growing trend towards seamless interconnectivity by other innovators including the BMW release in 2018.
The Cipher Automotive team are proud to be supporting some of the world’s great automotive innovators in their race to make level 5 autonomous vehicles a reality.
