Re: Driverless Vehicles (not cars)
I'm torn on this. While I love the idea of new technology helping enable consumers, such as self-driving cars for folks who may not be able to drive, or who just absolutely loathe driving and for some reason public transit isn't cutting it for them. That being said, do we need to embed everything for the sake of it, just to ride the IoT trend...probably not. I think the industry really needs to think about where connectivity will make a positive impact, think health, education, infrastructure. Those are great markets to deliver viable change through connectivity. Connectivity for the sake of connectivity? All i fear is the clogging of our data pipes with useless information that provides really no benefit for anyone. Analytics that come from these devices could be a way to innovate for so many industries, we just have to I think ask ourselves what is the real, tangible benefit of the data that comes from connecting devices and infrastructure and honestly, do we really expect to do anything with it.
