Looking to switch to Data science




Need advise to switch to Data analytics and Data science.
I have around 15 years of experience in embedded software development for various domains mainly for automotive domain.
I was currenlty working as Technical lead. Recently lost my job due to company closure, and finding difficult to get another with my experience level. I have good experince in development using C and C++ language.

Wanted to know if it a good step to start in this area ? With IoT coming up what other options can be there in automotive and consumer electronics data analysis.

The other question I have is how important it is to have domain expertise in field of data science.
