20 Most Promising Automotive Tech Solution Providers - 2016

From the first V8 engine developed by Ford to the driverless cars of today, automotive technology has seen massive development over the years. Going forward, these trends will see vast upturn in driver systems, autonomous vehicles, biometrics, vehicle tracking systems and more. Other trends like active window displays, remote vehicle shutdown, and active health monitoring will also have a big impact on the sector.

Further, the presence of major regulatory requirements like Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFÉ) regulations in the U.S., sustainability protocols, and changing preferences around ownership will require OEMs to depend more on technology to control costs. It has been touted that being driven by shared mobility, connectivity services, and feature upgrades, new business models could expand automotive revenue pools by over 30 percent, adding up to $1.5 trillion.
