PAC releases report on the state of car connectivity in Europe

Software and IT Services (SITS) consulting company Pierre Audoin Consultants (PAC) has just released a report on the latest developments in the connected car entitled “The Connected Car in Europe- Strategies and Technologies for Connected Driving”.

The study is based on a survey distributed to 250 CEOs of auto companies in France, Germany, the UK, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and Italy with the objective to explore strategies for the industry to develop and launch connected car technologies and services. The researchers posed questions such as:

Which trends and changes are important?
What role do politics and standardization play regarding connected car offerings?
What are upcoming investment plans and who are the decision makers?

The PAC report’s conclusion is that “The automative industry is about to experience a technological leap that will substantially change mobility”.

The PAC survey found that around 55% of automakers are still in the early stages of a connected car strategy, defined as being in the research and development, design and implementation, and testing phases, but, a further 43% are already in production mode, defined by the integration into products, rollout, and operation phases. The main focus for manufacturers is on in-car connectivity, car-to-driver connectivity, as well as car-to-x connectivity.

The study also considered the challenges facing the European car industry such as how to bundle multiple third-party services, change in ownership strategy, and allocating revenue streams across different partners.
