NEW YORK, Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Distinguished members of IEEE, the world's largest professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, believe that internet-enabled vehicles will play an instrumental role in improving the future of commuting. It is estimated that by 2025, 60 percent of the cars on the road will be internet connected, which will promote advanced safety features, upgraded vehicle software protection and the continued adoption of autonomous vehicles.
"With cars being equipped with blue tooth and the ability to interact with mobile devices, we're already beginning to see car manufacturers implementing connected car technologies," stated Jeffrey Miller, IEEE member and Associate Professor in the Computer Systems Engineering department at University of Alaska, Anchorage. "The widespread adoption of connected cars will allow consumers to treat their vehicles as just another one of their devices. Hosting mobile operating systems and purchasing data packages from wireless providers will be commonplace in the future."

Autonomous Vehicles and the Internet: A More Productive Commute
"Trust in automated technology systems is the key to widespread adoption of autonomous vehicles," said Alberto Broggi, IEEE Senior Member and professor of computer engineering at the University of Parma in Italy. "It's amazing to think that just six years ago, smartphones did not exist and now people cannot live without them. This dependence that consumers have acquired will be the catalyst for autonomous vehicles, leading people to trust in automated technology. Within the next five years, lanes will be dedicated for the specific use of autonomous vehicles."
In the future, Broggi believes that driving will be more of a novelty where, "people will actually pay to drive cars manually similar to go carts."
