As a central part of system automation and informed decision making, business analytics and the use of big data will play a major role in supply chain, logistics and infrastructure management. Today, the Internet of Things (IoT), with its sensors that record information along the points in the supply chain and transportation infrastructures, can alert managers of traffic jams, infrastructure repair needs and the timeliness of goods transport. This sensor tracking is particularly effective when it links into GPS tracking and geographic information systems (GIS).
The year 2016 will be a year of continuous improvements and new technology debuts for both drones and driverless cars. While many of these improvements will be in the areas of LiDAR, sensors, GPS and new computer chip and storage technologies, there are also policy and ergonomics considerations that enter into these seven notable trends.

The issues are now squarely on the radar of driverless technology developers, LIDAR and sensor manufacturers. Now it is a matter of taking each issue and developing the right technologies and man-machine interfaces that can make driverless cars not only autonomous, but responsive to the human foibles of driving in heavy traffic, coupled with the need to resort to technology alternatives when primary systems fail.
