Connected services, such as diagnostics, fleet management, tracking and tracing, and navigation services, have been available in the commercial and public service vehicle markets for some years, and adoption of relevant applications has been widespread. With faster mobile internet access and new wireless connectivity solutions becoming more available, these applications are being developed further, and many new opportunities are emerging in these markets.

Most new vehicles on the road in developed markets now have some connectivity enabled, and many vehicle OEMs have announced plans to have autonomous vehicles on the road by the early 2020s. Although totally autonomous trucks are still some way off, successful trials have been conducted on the public highway, and various degrees of connectivity and autonomy are widely available.

Transport authorities and governments are supporting developments in connected trucks alongside smart highway applications because connected vehicles of all sorts can increase safety and improve energy efficiency, as well as optimise journey times and fuel consumption.

Because this market relies on connectivity, there are many substantial opportunities for MNOs if key partnerships between vehicle OEMs, MNOs and technology companies can be established. Major MNOs such as Vodafone and Verizon have been investing in the connected vehicle market for at least the past fifteen years, but the opportunities are large and various and all operators should be looking at the possibilities that these markets provide.
