Top 20 Automotive Technology Companies - 2018

What was once a distant dream is now manifesting into reality in the automotive industry. With technological advancements igniting a flurry of innovation, today’s advanced vehicles can make smart decisions automatically. Acting as the fulcrum of this massive transformation, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) capture real time data from a myriad of sources to improve driving experience. Bridging the communication gap between human and machines to reduce safety concerns, ADAS helps drivers make informed driving decisions. ADAS integrates passengers’ personal devices and geo-mapping technologies to help vehicles navigate to the right destination seamlessly. Furthermore, these vehicles can be controlled using connected data-driven devices. Built to align with evolving security and compliance policies, the digitally-enabled modern vehicles provide improved, safe, and secure traveling experience.

Understanding that revamping post-sales customer engagement is as crucial as in-vehicle experience, automotive technology solution providers are bringing into the market intuitive solutions that streamline the interactions between the consumer and the car manufacturer. Providing a complete suite of dealership management software, solution providers have been successful in establishing an optimized relationship between the stakeholders, including consumers, auto dealers, and OEMs. Through mobile-friendly and web-based customer engagement technologies, automotive solution providers have enhanced the communication and workflow between dealerships and consumers.
