The Age of the Software Defined Vehicle Series — Volume 1 & Volume 2
The foremost audience of ‘The Age of the Software Defined Vehicle’ series is anyone and everyone working in the automotive industry or the world of technology that find and fund new technologies and business segments. The rise of the connected vehicle is both exciting and confusing. Exciting because these vehicles are the personification of so many of today’s advanced technologies and represent a potent new area in the technology arena. Confusing because little has been compiled about this important trend in one place that explains the history, the technologies, the benefits and how these vehicles will impact us, our families and the streets we drive on.
This ‘Age of the Software Defined Vehicles’ series brings together the world of the traditional automobile with Information Technology (IT), Operational Technology (OT), cloud, mobile, security, big data, and new emerging consumption and new monetization model. Authors’ Mahbubul Alam and Neeli R. Prasad — longtime Silicon Valley veteran and global technology strategist respectively, are two of today’s experts on this exciting, emerging area. The book offers a deep, fascinating dive into where the autonomous vehicle came from, what it is, what it will be and why it’s so valuable to us.
