This growth will be driven by user-focused applications, including infotainment, navigation, fleet management, remote diagnostics, automatic crash notification, enhanced safety, usage-based insurance, traffic management and autonomous driving. One of the verticals predicted to see huge growth is in driver assistance systems and autonomous driving applications, which could more than double from five percent in 2014 to more than 11 percent of the total space by 2020.
