Compelling driver experiences and services are the future of the connected car, but automakers and suppliers are struggling to meet expanding driver needs while also aligning their business models to capture new value.

Harbor Research and Pillar Technology discuss how companies can succeed in extending the driver experience while positioning themselves to profit from data-driven services and software.
