The road to connected mobility doesn’t need to be lonely
Earlier this week, leading American automaker Ford named James Hackett their new CEO. Mr. Hackett has previously run Ford Smart Mobility, a branch within the company focused on exploring the possibilities that come from combining connectivity with mobility. Today, advances in connected vehicle tech are coming out of Silicon Valley at a rapid pace. Automakers in Detroit hear the clock ticking, and are taking measures to speed up processes in order to catch up with the competition in California. The changes at Ford illustrate how seriously they take this challenge, and just how important connected mobility is for the auto industry.
