About the Category

The Best Mobile Innovation for Automotive Award highlights best in class innovation in telematics, infotainment and the deployment of connected cars, vehicles and their associated services, products, applications and initiatives.

According to Business Insider, the connected-car market is growing at a five-year compound annual growth rate of 45% — 10 times as fast as the overall car market. We expect that 75% of the estimated 92 million cars shipped globally in 2020 will be built with internet-connection hardware. Innovation is addressing all service categories, such as infotainment systems, connected navigation and telematics. This award focuses on mobile (or cellular) based solutions, which foster widespread deployment of connected vehicles and their services.

This award is open to all organisations that provide mobile products, devices, services, solutions and applications.
