Connected cars will continue to help drive the Internet of Things (IoT) over the next five years, with a quarter billion connected vehicles on the road by 2020, the Gartner research group predicts. One-in-five vehicles driving on roads across the world will utilize some form of wireless network connection by 2020 - bringing enhanced infotainment and updated road reports into the vehicle.

"The connected car is already a reality, and in-vehicle wireless connectivity is rapidly expanding from luxury models and premium brands, to high-volume midmarket models," said James Hines, research director at the Gartner research group. "This increased consumption and creation of digital content within the vehicle will drive the need for more sophisticated infotainment systems, creating opportunities for application processors, graphics accelerators, displays and human-machine interface technologies."

 

Overall, IoT-connected "things" will increase from 4.9 billion in 2015 up to 25 billion by 2020, as casual consumers become more familiar with smart technology. Analysts predict connected devices in the household, office, and vehicles will boom in the coming years, despite security concerns and lack of a universal platform.
