The Future of the Automotive Industry: The Disruptive Forces of AI, Data Analytics, and Digitization

Book Description

Nothing defined the 20th century more than the evolution of the car industry. The 2020 decade will see the automotive industry leap forward beyond simply moving people and goods geographically towards a new purpose: to become a services industry. This book takes readers on a journey in the evolution of cars becoming “computers on wheels."

The automotive industry is one of the sectors most profoundly changed by digitalization and the 21st century energy needs.  You'll explore the shifting paradigms and how cars today represent a new interpretation of what driving should be and what cars should offer.

This book presents exciting case studies on how artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics are used to design future cars, predict car efficiency, ensure safety and simulate engineering dynamics for its design, as well as a new arena for IoT and human data. It opens a window into the origins of cars becoming software-run machines, first to run internal diagnostics, and then to become machines connected to other external machines via Bluetooth, to finally the Internet via 5G.
