On-line Presentation

Abstract

This IDC Presentation explores where smart homes and connected vehicles intersect today and what the road ahead looks like. During IDC's CES 2018 Breakfast Briefing, IDC's Consumer IoT team presented on the intersection between smart assistants and connected vehicles. Although the smart home and connected vehicle markets are in their infancy, the ecosystem for both markets has evolved rapidly in the past few years with a multitude of new products, platform capabilities, services, and partnerships. As more consumers are becoming aware of and interacting with smart assistants, being able to easily access them beyond the home to include vehicles is increasingly sought after — both for the intuitive, hands-free capabilities that intelligent voice interfaces bring to in-vehicle devices and systems and for seamless access to a smart assistant's suite of applications and services outside of the home. This IDC Presentation discusses the emerging developments in these fast-moving markets.
