You know what is going to happen when cars become semi-autonomous and vehicles do more of the driving via AI and connected traffic management systems? The drivers will consume more data on the move; smartphones out, websites browsed, products and services bought. The insurers, brokers and MGAs who grasp this opportunity will be the ones who prosper as car driving gradually becomes ride-sharing.
Here’s some timely news on the topic;
