IDC released new report titled “Collaboration Between Automotive OEMs and City Leaders for Implementing Connected Car and Smart City Solutions.”

Research firm IDC has released its new PlanScape titled "Collaboration Between Automotive OEMs and City Leaders for Implementing Connected Car and Smart City Solutions."

The IDC PlanScape is a report which aims to help businesses assure a value is recognised by developing a technological initiative aligned to its goals, scoped to succeed, and properly resourced.

In a press release, IDC said the new report offers practical guidance on how IT and non-IT leaders in automotive manufacturing and government can collaborate to provide new opportunities in urban environments.

"Connected cars have reached critical mass, and their interaction with the transportation infrastructure within Smart Cities is ongoing," said Heather Ashton, Research Manager for IDC Manufacturing Insights, and Ruthbea Yesner Clarke, Research Director for IDC Government Insights Smart Cities Strategies.

"Automotive OEMs and Smart City leaders will need to work closely to ensure the continued development of, and support for, connected car capabilities and services such as vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications that will increasingly include autonomous operations. This IDC PlanScape helps IT and non-IT automotive leaders understand the connected car and Smart City ecosystem, and identify the key stakeholders and their part in accelerating further development of services for connected cars within Smart Cities," they continued.
