Connected cars – Back to the future?

Elements of KPMG’s Global Automotive Executive Survey 2012 make for some interesting reading.

The full report is here Pdf with the Connected Car Solutions section on pages 25-28 being particularly relevant.

Although there is a propensity for acronyms  (eg TIME = Telecommunications, Information Technology, Media and Entertainment, & OEMs = Original Equipment Manufacturers) and a smattering of jargon, the future looks fascinating.

Our longer term view is that intelligent personal mobile devices with multiple connectivity will be the standard leaving vehicles homes etc to simply provide  enhanced display & audio features – but what do we know!

KPMG’s Press release gives their interpretation of the survey and the background info.

We’ve borrowed one of KPMG’s pictures which we rather liked, although we prefer the 911!
