Auto at #MWCA18

Today’s digital consumers will likely become tomorrow’s augmented customers in the 5G era, increasingly adopting emerging technologies such as augmented reality; virtual reality; technology solutions and applications for smart homes, cities and buildings; and emerging services such as drone delivery, consumer robotics and autonomous cars.

The development of autonomous vehicles is seeing increased momentum in North America, with a growing range of players developing innovative solutions. In the US specifically, between the large presence in the connected car market and established telematics and vehicle connectivity solutions, mobile operators are looking to play a key role in the automated vehicle market.
