The Automotive industry is undergoing a significant transformation as it prepares itself for the next generation connected car. Driven by the industry march towards fully autonomous vehicles, advanced driver assistance systems continue to develop, with each newly automated activity bringing the industry one step closer to its goal of driverless vehicles by 2020.
As carmakers seek to connect cars with the Internet and add more software-driven functions, a host of non-traditional chip makers are entering the automotive market. Faced with difficult decisions, today’s automotive OEMs are feeling the pressure as they attempt to navigate through the endless array of new prospective technologies, while maintaining compliance with increased government regulation.
To remain competitive in a fierce market where consumer preferences change often and the economic conditions continue to fluctuate, the automotive OEMs need to constantly look at readjusting their business models if they want to differentiate their brand and deliver value to their customers.
