2015 spotlighted the IoT journey with the rise of connected cars, homes, and machinery. A smartphone is the remote control to our lives; network connectivity is the link to improving everyday experiences from finding a parking spot to monitoring personal wellness.

Consider this: There are five billion mobile phone users across the globe.
Those users reach for those phones, on average, 150 times per day, with two trillion gigabytes of digital information shared annually.
That’s a lot of data flowing back and forth.
If we can come up with a way to take advantage of this free-flow of information, at GM we believe it could lead to better fuel economy, more efficient driving behavior, and improved vehicle diagnostics in connected vehicles.
