Taking the Wheel: The Connected Car Market Disruption to Shared-Mobility and Worldwide IoT

We ask: how will autonomous vehicles be regulated and how will associated policy-making initiatives create opportunities for deployment? As connected cars learn some of the most personal details of our lives, eg: where do we go, when do we go there, when are we home, where do we shop and work, where do our children go to school and what locations do we go to at what time-- how will our own privacy and security be affected and what steps will be taken to protect this information? The connected car has the potential to majorly disrupt the way we work, and live/interact globally-- it is estimated the oil and gas industry will see a $39.4 billion value in the IoT market.
