Bosch CEO: "The car as we know it will soon be history"
Dr. Volkmar Denner, chairman of the board of management of Robert Bosch forecasts that just a few years from now, cars will be an active part of the internet of things (IoT), able to communicate with other connected modes of transportation, and even with the smart home.
He said: “The car as we know it will soon be history. Today you use the internet to book a hotel room; in the future you’ll arrange your mobility online as well.”
To do so, private vehicles will be part of an integrated solution that includes public transportation and even entire urban infrastructures.
“In a few years, mobility will be seamlessly connected,” Denner said. “People today still think in terms of their own individual vehicles, but the next few years will see their focus shift toward the most convenient way to reach their destination.” Read the full article here.
