Ground reality

In the last few months, the autonomous car has been on the wish list of many auto manufacturers. As a matter of fact, they are bullish about launching autonomous cars in coming years. But before that happen, features like lane departure warning systems, brake assist (BAS), smart navigation systems, parking and traffic assist, collision assist, etc. are now being made available as a standard offering by many automakers in their current offering.  Digital cockpits laden with advanced infotainment features like In-car shopping and in-car payment are also gaining some traction and experiments have already started.


Problem Area

Connectivity features like OTA (over the air update) updates is evolving as the standard practice. But it has also led to increased vulnerability of the car to cyber attacks which are also evolving as a separate domain. The software content of the vehicles is improving and the automakers are forming partnerships with the IT industry, acquiring smaller companies and startups to gain competencies in this field. 


India Story

In India, the automotive industry is not untouched by these changes and the automakers here are also introducing connected car features in their products. The companies for the purpose are collaborating across different domains. Tata Motors is working with Microsoft; Nissan India is collaborating with Pointer; Honda Cars India is collaborating with IBM Watson; Minda iConnect with Microsoft India; and Reliance Jio Infocomm with AirWire etc. Many new players are also entering the automotive ecosystem bringing in their innovative ideas and fresh perspective.
