Automotive industry gets connected

Leading car manufacturers and Communications Service Providers (CSPs), Volvo, Audi, Toyota, TIM, and Telstra, describe the importance of connectivity in cars and the ecosystem required to support connected vehicles. For Volvo, connectivity was once just a feature but is now a core part of their entire car offering. According to TIM, in the year 2025, there will be an estimated 100 million connected cars. The challenge for connected cars is receiving and sending large amounts of data to and from the cloud, according to Toyota. Audi expects 5G to make software over the air downloads more reliable for the increasing number of vehicles. Telstra considers that once all cars can communicate with each other, with the surrounding infrastructure and with pedestrians, the possibilities are unlimited.

As a technology partner in automotive, Ericsson provides a connected vehicle platform with solutions to support the growing connected car ecosystem and infrastructure, as well as the development towards 5G.
