The road to the future of new megatrends: connectivity, autonomous driving, and electrification

Industry is transitioning towards sustainable energy and the need for efficient, reliable, and affordable transportation in increasingly urbanized environments. The industry's evolution is being shaped in real-time by megatrends such as enhanced connectivity, autonomous driving technologies, and a shift towards electrification, all in alignment with evolving consumer preferences.

Industry overview

The automotive industry is under scrutiny: making and running cars require material and energy with related greenhouse gas emissions. Even battery-powered cars still need green electricity to run clean.

The transition to a world of sustainable mobility needs innovation and big paradigm shifts. For an automotive company, the journey to become a sustainable and intelligent enterprise is a collaborative effort between customers, partners, and vendors. The world is changing quickly, and there is opportunity in innovation spaces that are sparsely populated, empty, or don’t even exist today. Many innovative ideas are out there and in need of platforms to turn imagination into innovation and reality.

Challenges

01
Customer centricity

Understanding unique mobility needs to explore new business opportunities, enhance brand loyalty, and increase customer satisfaction.

02
Mobility services

Expanding from just vehicles to broader mobility solutions, creating new ecosystems and revenue opportunities.

03
Connected cars

Leveraging our connected world to transform cars into multifunctional platforms, offering entertainment, productivity, and increased customer value

04
Digital supply chain and smart manufacturing

Emphasizing responsive, digital supply chains with intelligent technologies for improved productivity and customer service.

05
Sustainability

Automakers prioritizing sustainable practices will achieve efficiencies, meet regulations, and uncover new business opportunities.

The Vision

1.
Future “Smart Cities"

Future “smart cities” need mobility concepts beyond individual transportation based on owning a vehicle. The paradigm is shifting from optimizing traffic flows toward bringing people to where they want or need to be, using all possible mobility service options.

2.
Electrification and Alternative Drivetrain

Electrification and alternative drivetrain concepts change supply chains and the role of suppliers. They are introducing new brands and players that disrupt the variety of models in the market – driving new challenges and opportunities for warranty, aftermarket, and resale activities.

3.
Data “Emissions” from Connected Vehicles.

Data “emissions” from connected vehicles help manufacturers understand and predict the behavior and preferences of their passengers. This means new opportunities to monetize information and optimize the driver experience and traffic infrastructure. In addition, the importance of electronic components with their correspondingly shorter lifecycle is driving the need for modular vehicles.

4.
Autonomous cars.

Self-driving cars free the driver from just driving and open up a wide range of opportunities to use the gained time for learning, fun, communication, and consumption. Autonomous options for “delivering” goods and services can help reduce congestion and increase utilization patterns of vehicles.

How to avoid rework and time waste in e-commerce development

Let’s take medical literature as an example. PubMed remains the main access point for most researchers, and it functions as an old-style repository. There are no data aggregation functionalities; the search is based on basic criteria that mostly only rely on the article’s title, abstract, and keyword.
