Disruption lies ahead for the automotive industry. Significant changes in mobility-user behavior, focusing rather on in-vehicle experience than on driving experience, will turn the market. Suppliers and original equipment manufacturers will have to transform their products and services, besides adapting their capabilities and corporate structures, to survive and sustainably succeed in the volatile environment. One of the disruptive technological developments going on is the transformation of the car into a third living space due to a variety of connectivity features developed and added to vehicles. The technological progress of these connectivity features leads to several technical and economic considerations including personal assistant, health, convenience, security and safety, as well as legal and insurance issues. Analyzing the intelligent integration of such features requires a holistic view on the mobility ecosystem.
