The Connected Car
Finding the Intersection of Opportunity and Consumer Demand
The modern vehicle is becoming increasingly connected. Cars are no longer just a means of transporting drivers and passengers to their destinations but mobile computers complete with modern network connectivity, IoT sensors, infotainment centers supplying audio/video experiences, navigation, and more.

This whitepaper focuses on the current state of the connected car market, examining consumer preferences, developer interests, and how car manufacturers can expose their APIs to marry the two and take advantage of the new opportunities emerging in this rapidly evolving market.
