ABI: Virtualization, direct vehicle connectivity are key to transportation success

Connected technologies will be more effective if companies work toward “virtualizing smart transportation solutions via in-vehicle technology, and cloud-based control systems whereby information is sent directly to and from the car, bypassing physical roadside infrastructure all together,” says ABI Research’s Dominique Bonte. ABI also highlights the need for Big Data to deliver real-time information to automobiles, as well as the role autonomous cars will play in reducing traffic congestion on public roads.
