With connectivity and autonomy becoming the new buzzwords for vehicles globally, the automotive industry’s footprint is rising at the MWC with each passing year. Similar to the CES in Las Vegas, MWC has also become the stage where automotive OEMs and suppliers highlight their innovations in telematics, infotainment and the deployment of connected cars. Thanks to the Spanish government’s ‘5G Barcelona’ initiative which aims to develop the Spanish city as the reference 5G hub in Europe, enterprises are scrambling to showcase convergences of digital technologies like AI, IoT and Big Data to show off potential vehicle-to-everything (V2X) use cases, for example.
