Those are worthy objectives and need solving, but what’s missing from the broader conversation of the “connected” car are the other opportunities that a connected car can bring to the digital economy. It’s more than just the driving that will become automated. As the car becomes more connected, there emerges an opportunity to solve not just the self-driving problem, but to simplify a whole host of services. Those services might help with parking and refueling, or perhaps the capability for cars to detect what types of drinks are in the cup-holder, and recommendations for places to pull off for that next coffee when your drink is running low. As we evolve further, the integration of AI and machine learning and its impact on transportation could be enormous.
