Automakers seek new ways to collaborate and innovate - Industrial Insights - PwC
New investments into electrification, autonomy and mobility are being announced almost daily it seems, and those investments are remaking the auto industry. Carmakers today face a serious dilemma – if they don’t invest substantially in electric and self-driving technology, they won’t curry favor with Wall Street. But as they continue to sink more dollars into these technologies, they risk wasting billions as the electric vehicle (EV) segment to-date remains unprofitable.

Will Robots Take Over CRE? - Cushman & Wakefield Blog
Broader adoption of technology within commercial real estate often lags behind other industries. Real estate and infrastructure assets are expensive and built more for longevity and a predefined lifecycle than flexibility. To embrace change, players in CRE markets must first be convinced that the technology will be widely deployed and long lasting. But there is no doubt that long-lasting and widespread change is on the horizon with several technologies.

Smart trucks are going to need smarter roads…and smarter workers - PwC Industrial Insights
as it turns out, better AI isn’t necessarily top-of-mind for businesses assessing the potential benefits of autonomous vehicles. While 69% of respondents in a survey by PwC and the Manufacturing Institute said technological immaturity was the biggest barrier to adoption of autonomous trucks, that’s not where they see the biggest need for investment in the space. Instead, more businesses who participated in our study (64%) would like to see increased funding for smart infrastructure than greater investment in AI, sensors, or vehicle-to-vehicle communications.
