Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Trash Talkin'
Obviously, the big data companies are either Chinese [?] or American so the leaders in connected mobility are the Qualcomms [USA!] and Broadcoms [USA!] and the Ciscos [USA!] of the world.
BWAH! Big Data, 'Big Tech,' Big Barriers to Entry
My sense is that the prize in Europe will not be as big as the prize in the US. America is a country where the culture of the economy is very much winner takes all, it has very little public transport spending.
So you'll call an autonomous vehicle without a steering wheel, you'll jump in it, it'll sell you stuff on Amazon, it'll sell you Facebook ads. It'll be crunching your data and if you're a wealthy person who is prepared to opt-in for your data, it'll give you a free lift in exchange for selling you ads, for you shopping on Amazon, etc.
Personal Point of Reference: When I was doing "knowledge management" research at the turn of the century, divergence in applied IP stood out in three ways. Europe was "ahead" in telecoms antitrust, USA was "ahead" in consumer Web2.0 adoption rate (having built-out, then sub-leased 5-eyes transoceanic backbone), and ROW was "leaping" to cellular device and app marketing. Let's therefore continue to follow the money in total, time-sensitive information awareness.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
