TECHNOLOGY by Cubic Telecom is in use in nearly three million smart vehicles today - and the Irish firm expects that to increase to 20 million within three years.

"The software in smart vehicles has 10 times more code than in mobile phones. This complexity will only increase as we move toward a world of autonomous vehicles," says Richard Springer, director of commercial strategy at the Sandyford-based firm.

"The next wave of developers won't be developing for smartphones," he says. "They'll be developing for vehicles, drones and tractors."
