Les constructeurs automobiles sont confrontés à quatre changements, qui vont modifier complètement l'expérience associée à l'automobile dans les années à venir. Ces quatre nouveautés, provenant de l'électronique grand public, sont la connectivité, l'intelligence artificielle, les capteurs et les interfaces homme-machine. Chacun de ces quatre facteurs de perturbation, pris séparément, est en soi une puissante vague d'innovation. Combinés, ils redéfinissent complètement le secteur.

These four innovations, brought from the consumer electronics industry, include Connectivity, Artificial intelligence, Sensors, and Interface. Each of these four disrupting factors, taken independently, is a powerful wave on its own. When combined, they will redefine the industry.
