A triple wave of disruption is hitting the automotive industry – vehicle electrification, autonomous vehicles, and transport-as-a-service.

Significant advances in autonomy aren’t limited to the automotive market. Robots, and increasingly, cobots (human-robot pairings) are operating independently of programming as they are equipped with sensors and local, fog, and cloud-based processing power.

In 2019, we will see additional advances in the security and safety of autonomous electronics in areas in which humans and robots interact. For example, autonomous robots and cobots able to map their surroundings in 3D through multiple modalities in real time will become increasingly important as they work in close proximity to humans.
