Is the Automotive Industry really prepared to be connected? Gregg Garrett of CGS Advisors addressed that question on an Automotive World webinar, ahead of their upcoming Automotive Megatrends Conference (http://automotivemegatrendsusa.com/).
“While most people think of vehicle technology like Autonomous Vehicles, Infotainment, V2V/V2I and Telematics — the disruption that connected technology creates is broader than just these upcoming technologies,” said Garrett. “This is the next technological discontinuity, an opportunity for Automakers and Suppliers to establish a new connection with their customers.”
