The automotive website business, many would agree, is highly competitive and fast-paced. In fact, in the Websites category of the DrivingSales.com Vendor Ratings section, there are nearly 350 products listed.
Which is why when I hear about new providers entering the space, I am partly amazed. Especially when the “newcomer” is from outside the auto industry. With so many established providers and evolved platforms, how can one believe they can enter into this space competitively?

Walmart expands robotic force to 650 stores
Walmart is enlarging its army of robots that scan shelves for out-of-stock items. The tall but slim Bossa Nova machines, laden with cameras, will roam aisles at a total of 1,000 stores this year to alert employees about items that need restocking. In a day, they accomplish what it takes employees two weeks to do, according to the megachain, which claims that rather than replace jobs, the devices will free workers to perform other tasks. Earlier this month, Walmart said it was deploying “Alphabots” to help fulfill online grocery orders.
Toyota is building an entire futuristic town around not driving
Called the Woven City, this planned metropolis is designed to be a testbed for future technologies.
Toyota is apparently no longer content making Corollas, Hilux pickups and loads of money, as it’s now planning to build an entire town of its own. Seriously.
Today at CES in Las Vegas, the automaker announced its ambitious new construction project, called the Woven City. Located near Mount Fuji in Japan, this brand-new municipality will occupy the location of a defunct manufacturing plant. The automaker has reclaimed a 175-acre plot of land that, over the next few years, will be transformed into a city of the future.
The goal of this prototype conurbation is to create a living laboratory for the development of future technologies. This encompasses things like self-driving vehicles, robotics, smart homes, personal mobility and more.
