Share via:

As we look forward to 2022, it’s interesting to reflect on some of the major themes and trends in mobility, automotive and connectivity that captured the imagination in 2021.

Our latest eBook brought together the Top 5 most engaged-with topics across Cubic’s web and social channels, but which topics rounded out the Top 10? The future of electric vehicles (EVs), in-vehicle software architecture, monetisation, and the connectivity that makes it all possible are the themes our readers were most interested in learning more about:

Car data monetisation: fuelling a new wave of opportunities

Reuters’ Car of the Future 2021 event brought together some of the industry’s leading experts for a virtual conference, including Cubic Telecom CEO Barry Napier. With connected car data slated to add $400bn in value for industry players, it’s clear that we’re in the early stages of a new era of data management and monetisation, with 5G the ultimate game changer.

Connected vehicle data is unlocking new opportunities for carmakers

When car data is more profitable that the vehicle itself, how are automotive OEMs responding? What will a mobility landscape centred around services and the intelligent management of big data look like? Cubic’s head of commercial strategy Richard Springer joined tech journalist Adrian Bridgewater for a conversation that explored all of these issues – and a few more. Find out more here.

The future of in-vehicle software architecture

What does the future hold for in-vehicle software architecture and how is it transforming the automotive sector? Future-proof device management and lifecycle development are just two key areas where experts like Cubic’s VP of Automotive Design and Innovation, Punitha Sinnapan, are focusing their efforts. This interview with tech journalist Adrian Bridgwater explored how OEMs can take a lead in software-defined vehicle development, among other topics.

Monetizing connected data

An all-electric future for commercial EV fleets

Commercial vehicles powered by gas-guzzling diesel engines have long been a major source of air pollution. For decades, the transportation sector has been one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), generating 29% of total U.S. GHG emissions in 2019. But market trends indicate an acceleration towards zero-emitting freight trucks, urban buses and delivery vans that could revolutionise commercial electric vehicle (EV) fleets and drive business into the future. How will they get there? Read this post to find out.

Electric vehicles 2021: challenges, trends and the road ahead

Electric vehicles (EVs) are front and centre on the strategic roadmap of every leading automaker. The need for sustainable transport solutions is powering momentum towards an all-electric future for mobility, and 2021 was a year of milestones in that regard. Customer demands for EVs is at an all-time high, but before they go mainstream, there are some challenges to be addressed. Find out more about them here.

How will leading OEMs use technology to pivot into a more sustainable future? At Cubic Telecom, we’re looking forward to playing out part in shaping 2022 and beyond. You can check out our look-back on the trends that shaped 2021 in our new eBook – get your copy now!
