Everything we know, think and feel about cars will change, says a new book by IT and automotive industry experts. It’s far more than a test drive — it’s the new reality in the next ten years.
Think the self-driving car is still an experiment? Time to buckle up. Automotive technology will completely transform in the next ten years. By 2027, we won’t question what we drive, how we drive it, or if we’re even driving at all. Just like computers, our understanding of cars must accelerate from the past 130 years of emotion and ownership to a new kind of collaboration.
According to a new book by Dr. Sebastian Wedeniwski and Stephen Perun, autonomous driving is just the start. Mobility is about to take a sharp turn that will profoundly change our lives. In My Cognitive autoMOBILE Life: Digital Divorce from a Cognitive Personal Assistant, the authors discuss how we’re going to have entirely new relationships with our vehicles. Technology is already on the way — and we need to catch up.
Wedeniwski and Perun are IT innovators and automotive industry experts, working at the vanguard of this technological transformation. They provide an insider’s look at the nature — and future – of cognitive vehicles, from connected cars to cognitive vehicles. In the next ten years, cars will become our navigators, drivers, and possibly service robots. They will be our personal assistants — learning, understanding and reasoning. They will be as vital as our homes and offices — a third hub, cognitively linked to our lives and needs.
Technology is a one-way trajectory. We don’t innovate backwards. As cars become far more involved in our lives, we must be ready to adapt, say the authors. The time is now to comprehend this inevitable evolution, start changing our views of mobility, and make smart decisions about the parameters of cars’ roles in our lives and culture.
