  • More than $100 billion invested in Automotive R&D globally every year1
  • Advanced driver-assistance systems technology could reach $35 billion in revenue by 20212
  • 98% of new vehicles in 2020 will have connectivity-enabled technology3
  • Cost per mile may be 40% cheaper when sharing an autonomous ride vs. driving one’s own automobile3
  • Adaptive speed control is expected to be in 80% of new vehicles by 20253
