Connected cars to provide ‘next-level’ navigation systems, says Gartner

According to Gartner, there will be a quarter billion connected cars on the road by 2020.

The American research and advisory firm believe connected cars will provide users with “next-level” navigation systems – using topographical map data to resolve the best use of fuel and energy during the route of the vehicle.

Gartner also revealed new cars are going to heavily rely on innovative cloud-based technology for vehicle connectivity to the internet, securing highly scalable data storage, processing, and analytics capabilities.
