“The sooner we have more connected vehicles on the roads, the sooner we can save more lives and improve mobility.”
Shailen Bhatt - President & CEO of ITS America
There will be more than 125 Million Connected Vehicles by 2022
According to a new report, shipments of connected vehicles are expected to increase considerably over the next four years. Counterpoint Research’s report forecasts a growth of 270% by 2022 to represent more than 125 million connected vehicles to be shipped from this year.
All of that technology requires installation, configuration, repairs, and in many cases regular calibration. ITS Basic Training gives you the ability to understand and navigate the complex framework of technology that creates this connected vehicle infrastructure network.
