Title: CAV Enabling Mobility Services Opportunities


Abstract: The transportation industry currently is undergoing a huge transition – estimated by some to be the biggest transformation in its history. Vehicles are increasingly being equipped with embedded connectivity and automated technologies and Automotive Edge Computing Consortium (AECC) predicts that by 2025 CAV market will be $150B with more that 100 million CAV on the road. This has enabled several Mobility as a Service (MaaS) opportunities. Analysts indicate that connected car capabilities already influence 6 out of 10 vehicle purchases, giving vehicle manufacturers the ability to open new revenue streams, diversify core activities, and improve profit margins by selling software and connected services. Processing the big data from connected vehicles is one of the big challenges all automakers are currently facing. But these challenges also provide opportunities to build hyper connected cyber-physical systems (also called Digital Twin) with several interesting use cases like personalized intelligent driving and smart traffic management using CAVs.
