Mobile World Congress 2018

What does a connected car do for you?

Martorell,  20 February 2018

  • Having your online shopping delivered straight to your boot or turning on the heating at home from your car is now possible thanks to the connected car
  • Apps such as Waze let you share traffic information in real time so you can choose the best driving route
  • The future trend is that 100% connected cars will be a part of our everyday lives

- How long will it take to arrive at my destination?: “One of the most useful apps for getting around and finding the shortest route home is Waze”, he explains. All it takes is a simple hand gesture on the screen: drivers share real-time information about the traffic or any kind of road incident, such as traffic jams or roadwork. “Collaborative apps contribute to sustainable urban mobility, as they allow you to save time and fuel”, says Fabian.

-Alexa, open the garage door: After choosing the shortest route home and without encountering any difficulties, Fabian activates the Amazon Alexa voice assistant to open the garage from his car with no need for the remote control. “User interaction with voice activated devices is an obvious future trend”, he points out. Managing your agenda while driving, receiving weather updates or turning on the heating at home are just a few of the thousands of skills that this technology can perform.

-The connected car, your everyday ally: The connected car will have a starring role at the Mobile World Congress. Fabian Simmer anticipates that what is in store for us is a car that is “100% connected with our surroundings. The possibilities are infinite thanks to partnerships among companies, as more and more apps will be integrated that will enhance our in-vehicle experience with all kinds of services to make our lives easier”, he concludes.
