In my recent interview with Sam Shawki, the founder and chief executive officer of MagicCube, I wrote about getting a new Ram Truck and noted that it was a beast not just in size and towing power, but a beast of electronics and connectivity. According to Intertrust Technologies, the percentage of new cars shipped with Internet connectivity will rise from 13% in 2015 to 75% in 2020, and that in 2020, connected cars will account for 22% of all vehicles on the road. That number is sure to grow. More stats in the infographic below.

In today's fast-paced world of technology, new software can reshape industries overnight. But while the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is everywhere now—connecting millions of devices, machines, sensors, and systems throughout the world—it is anything but an overnight sensation. Over the past 50 years, technological milestones big and small—from large-scale system architecture breakthroughs to modest "Eureka" moments—have led to today's IIoT and are still informing predictions for tomorrow's industrial landscape.

Today’s emerging technologies are likely to have a huge effect on many industries over the coming decades, hotel companies around the world are already taking advantage of some fairly game-changing devices such as robotic technology that will deliver luggage and room service quickly and efficiently to your hotel room.
But as yet, this kind of technology is not commonly seen in hotels, not just because of technological and cost limitations but also because of the period of mindset change required by consumers, people are used to having all of their queries and whims answered by a human, shifting that responsibility to a robot colleague can feel impersonal if not done well.
But some of the technologies that we are likely to see rolled out more universally will be in the actual rooms of the hotels themselves, this more unobtrusive IoT technology includes devices to display useful information quickly, help improve sleep and make sure in room tech and personal devices work in a truly connected, personalised and seamless manner.

The invention of autonomous cars gained widespread public exposure in 1939’s world fair exhibition. Automakers had envisioned the car with an out of box abilities to drive through green valleys and palm trees on its own. Cars with a variety of techniques like radar sensors, video cameras, ultrasonic sensors and processing computers were to be designed to drive on roads.
People then were stunned and unable to believe whether this could be a reality. But today as technology is overpowering us, we can sense the future. Upcoming cars will be designed for a hassle-free ride and quick journey. According to Boston Consulting Group (after an in-depth study), global sale of autonomous cars might be more than 12 million till 2035.
The infographic below by Get off road unveils the key points of autonomous cars. In order to understand brief about the history of autonomous cars, challenges faced by engineers during manufacturing and what the future holds for autonomous car market head on to the infographic.
There is a lot of IoT going into cars, and also a lot of code.
