24 Connected Car Innovations

From Cloud-Connected Car Apps to Automotive Pizza Payments

— October 19, 2015 — Autos
These connected car innovations range from mobile safety dashboards to automotive pizza payments. Geared toward millennial drivers, these examples not only ensure safety while on the road but are also designed with a heightened level of entertainment and convenience in mind.

In addition to car features that allow drivers to order and pay for their daily coffee or lunchtime meal -- the Rinspeed Budii smart car concept lets drivers order and pay for coffee and sandwiches -- these connected car innovations include keyless car mechanisms that are powered by one's smartwatch devices.

Moreover, examples like secure car apps and smartphone driving assistants appeal to mobile users who always have their smartphone on hand while multimedia vehicles like the AutoUber taxi by DXLab hope to enhance commuter comfort with tech-focused features like Nextfix, Skype and more.
