Imagine having a car that knows you so well it can make recommendations on where to eat. If permitted, it would collect data on your driving patterns, share that data with an insurance company, and help get you a better insurance deal.
Such a car will go beyond being a machine you own, to being a device connected to your phone, your home, your accounts, among others.
These are some of the features that connected cars will bring to life once they hit the market in the future.
And that future is not very far off. Companies such as Hyundai have made big strides towards making these capabilities a reality for us.
In this episode, the second part out of two, Ed Bernardon interviews Marcus Welz, Vice President Smart Mobility at Hyundai. He’ll share with us the company’s vision on connected cars and the impact that they expect to have. He’ll also help us understand the extra features that the car will have as well as how they’ll contribute to the overall occupants’ experience.
