The business of selling cars, parts and services is undergoing tremendous disruption at every level. From omni-channel retailing to digital dealers to Uberization of service, the downstream automotive ecosystem is expected to be completely transformed in the next 10-15 years. Frost & Sullivan predicts that nearly $50 billion automotive parts will be sold online globally by 2020. Similarly, nearly 70% of car sales leads will be fully digital by 2020. However, these disruptive forces also present challenges. For instance, the rise of Amazon is set to completely transform car sales and aftermarket models. In this scenario, OEMs will have to recalibrate their strategies while protecting their investments in current sales footprints.Read more >
Fleet management systems providers should gradually transform into a one-stop solution provider, extending their capabilities beyond telematics services by providing freight matching, video safety, tolling, fuel management, weigh-station bypass, truck stops, etc., by adding vendors into their partnership ecosystem. Digital freight brokers need to expand customer reach through OEM and TSP channels by leveraging their expansive customer base. Video safety vendors should develop their portfolio by offering driver fatigue detection and compliance management complemented by telematics services. Connected trucks will play an integral part of future logistics and freight operations.Read more >
Mobile-based freight matching will be the biggest disrupter transforming the North American transportation industry—a $700 billion industry. On-demand freight mobility apps will bring in high asset utilization among smaller fleets, help reduce logistics costs for shippers due to lower brokerage fees, ease capacity crunch, reduce empty return miles that are currently about 20 billion miles, and also help reduce emissions. Mobile-based freight will also disrupt the brokerage industry, currently valued at $50 billion, and is likely to become a $26.4 billion market by 2025. Other notable apps will be the complementary freight optimization and driver utility apps, with a potential to grow into a $9 billion market.Read more >

The trucking industry today is focused on finding solutions to driver shortages, safety regulation compliance pressures, fuel efficiency enhancement demands, and higher driver productivity. That solution will be autonomous trucks. All truck OEMs are prioritizing some level of automated driving into their strategic plans to develop a sustainable transport solution for years to come as trucking provides the perfect platform for reaching the full potential of autonomous vehicles. The building blocks toward an autonomous truck include four main technological pillars: driveline, connectivity/communication, sensors, and algorithms/software. However, the process is expected to be slow as regulations, technology, liability, consumer adoption and societal concerns still need to be addressed.Read more >
Autonomous cars are heavily reliant on existing infrastructure such as road signs, markings, etc., to navigate. However, the required infrastructure to support autonomous driving is subpar at most in many regions. To ensure that autonomous cars can continue driving autonomously, they require high-definition maps that can “fill in the blanks” (e.g., missing lane markings or signs can be checked on the map). This briefing will discuss where HD maps fit into the autonomous driving ecosystem, HD maps adoption, and threats to automotive navigation players by geospatial companies.Read more >
