An industry defined by a 100-year-old legacy is reaching a tipping point. New technological innovations are disrupting the automotive sector from every angle, including ADAS, big data, telematics, artificial intelligence, automation and blockchain — to name just a few.

And no one is immune to the changes. Insurance carriers, OEMs, collision repairers, parts manufacturers, telematics providers, industrial manufacturers, vehicle lifecycle management solutions and everyone in between are reconsidering their place in the future of the automotive industry.
