So technology will play an increasing role in ensuring our cars can be updated and remain technologically relevant.”Sproule argued 5G and whatever may follow will be incredibly important in keeping vehicles relevant, pointing specifically to OTA updates: “People expect that on their phones and they will also expect that on their cars.”Mobile opportunityThe auto industry processes massive amounts of data, so with a business built around speed, he said low latency is essential.Other key benefits the company is looking for the next generation of mobile to deliver is massive bandwidth and improved cyber security.He said Aston Martin will be the first luxury carmaker to have an all-electric vehicle in 2019, with its Lagonda marque to be “reborn” as an all-electric high-end car brand.“To be a luxury leader in the future will require a combination of handcrafted, bespoke attention to detail, but will also require the highest levels of technology. So we’re looking at what it will take to be ready for level 4 autonomy,” he said.
