The age of Knight Rider is upon us. As the Internet of Things (IoT) revs up the automotive industry, connected cars are becoming "devices on wheels" with in-vehicle systems connected to the Internet. At the same time, car manufacturers and software companies are redoubling their efforts to bring automated cars into widespread use. For example, Volvo announced a partnership with Microsoft to develop driverless cars for the consumer market. IoT not only will bring in new vehicle technologies, but also will completely revolutionize the car industry.
