Automotive World’s latest special report, ‘How much longer can automakers control the in-car experience?’ outlines the opportunities and threats faced by the vehicle manufacturers, suppliers and tech giants battling to dominate the dashboard, in-vehicle infotainment, and by extension, the ride itself.
When it comes to the in-car experience, the reality is that automakers are already teaming up with the tech giants to optimise that experience. Consumers are well acquainted with digital assistants from players such as Amazon, Apple and Google, leaving the automakers little choice but to integrate the most popular offerings in their vehicles.
