Eclectic Connectivity between Connected Car and IoT-driven Smart Devices
The recent development that the current automobile industry is showing is transforming its expandability to boundless connectivity. Unconstrained in vehicle-centric experience, nowadays’ traits of autonomous vehicles redefine and bolster the meaning of “user experience” in a totally different way, by integrating with IoT-driven ecosystems. Interconnected with adjacent smart devices and platforms, the entire user experience has been augmented so the interplayable interaction between them is more seamlessly immersive than ever. Thanks to this innovative explosion that IoT-driven tangible, intangible infrastructure distributes, nowaday's connected car gets more diversified usability and interactivity towards future's user environment.
Given this shifting technological advance, in CES 2018 Las Vegas Samsung unveiled "Samsung Mobility Vision" to the press, showing the futuristic lifestyle of how connected car interconnected with IoT-based smart devices can dramatically influence our way of life and adaptively merged with it. Combined with Samsung's IVI(In-Vehicle Infotainment) system for connected car--Digital Cockpit, the overall user experience in the scenes speculatively shows possibility on IoT-driven ecosystem that could be permeated into our daily life in a pragmatic sense.
